A work in progress

It was a beautiful sunny Spring day and FnL came for lunch. It's the first time in ages that I've had a really good discussion about art, and since I hadn't yet seen the Basil Sellers Art Prize, they very thoughtfully gave me one of the catalogues as well as one of their most recent small paper artworks. After lunch I took them around the common grounds of the property to look at the flower and herb gardens and Leonie noticed this half-finished birds nest in the tree in the front garden. It's spindly and airy and seems to match the branches that have lost all their leaves. Such a contrast to the rest of the garden, which is green, lush and abundant with flowers.
