The blackberry flowers are in a night-light holder with a gold labyrinth on it. There were a few years when I became utterly obsessed by labyrinths, creating them, drawing them and walking them. I still do walk them whenever I come across them and draw them out on sand and soil whenever the mood takes me. Fun for children to run around and a beautiful aid to meditation and decision making.
The flowers are on a thornless blackberry that I planted in the Spring, it sat there doing nothing until the warm weather we had in November sparked it into life – the berries just shrivel after the green stage. I guess it would be best to cut it right back down to near the ground and hope for more settled seasons in 2016.
The buds create exquisite little stars as they burst through their casing
My houseplant of the week is an African Violet, grown from a leaf cutting
