Paddington Bear

Paddington Bear


At the moment I'm putting the finishing touches to a lot of my paintings in readiness for my first Christmas Fair the weekend after next. And I've had a lot of time this week as I've been suffering with a viral infection which is affecting my bronchial tubes. As a result, I haven't even been able to visit Dad who is still in hospital. 

Not getting much done in the garden at all these days, so today I just couldn't bear to have Mr. Middleton's bulbs staring hopefully at me for another day. They finally got planted. I'm bored witless at this stage. Not much, but at least it's done. And I'm feeling a bit better today.

You don't need photos of the planted up bulbs, so I'll post one of my paintings instead.

Paddington Bear looks great . I’ve Beech hedging to plant here but the back was poor early in the week so I just dug them all into a hole in the garden meantime .

Lovely painting, you're so talented Jacinta.  You could probably sell that one to M&S for their Paddington-based Christmas advertising this year.
