More celestial influences. The yellow of sunshine and the blue of the sky reflected by the flowers in the light filled bottles. www.etsy.com/uk/listing/540633  ...  p_home_active_7

Harvest from our garden. The wet Welsh weather suits blueberries by generally making sure the ground never dries out. www.etsy.com/uk/listing/252476  ...  p_home_active_9

Autumn Face © Jean Williamson

Inspired by the classic symbol of the Green Man that decorates many churches and secular buildings. It symbolises the seasonal and regenerative forces of nature. I used leaves, flowers, fruit, feathers and snail shells all collected from our garden to create this autumnal variant. www.etsy.com/uk/listing/569748  ...  p_home_active_4

The year is turning to the winter solstice and the shortest day. We need a bit of extra light to guide us on our way. www.etsy.com/uk/listing/555951  ...  hop_home_feat_1

The snowdrops are flowering again and bringing a welcome elegance to an otherwise wet and windy spring. St Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of lovers and is celebrated on 25th of January. Legend says she was a Celtic princess who was denied her true love by her father, so she moved to an isolated cell on Llanddwyn Island, Anglesey and found solace in God and healing the sick. www.etsy.com/uk/listing/496031  ...  hop_home_feat_2

I like the story that in Medieval times people believed that birds starting mating and nesting in the middle of February, and that St Valentine's (a Roman saint with no connection to lovers) feast day on 14th Feb was usurped and reused to romantic love. Taking advantage of global warming our Collared Doves started nesting in January. www.etsy.com/uk/listing/496065  ...  p_home_active_4

Sunshine in a tin. Daffodils are the flower associated with 10th wedding anniversaries, and St Dewi (St David), 6th century monk and patron saint of Wales whose feast day is celebrated on 1st March. www.etsy.com/uk/listing/522226  ...  _home_active_11
