Although he has a perfectly good cat flap, he prefers to come in the hard way--up onto the wishing well--onto the fence--onto the sloping roof--in through the en-suite window-down onto the loo and down the stairs!!!
This morning he had another baby black rabbit--it was already dead by the time I caught up with him.
We have more black rabbits wild in the fields behind us than normal ones, and Sparky seems to catch more of them than the others.
He ate every bit of it when I put it outside on the lawn, and is now sleeping it off on my bed!

He went away with the full kit of the encastic set and extra wax's and card-I just know I will be seeing more of his work in the future-he was a natural at it!
Within seconds he had reconised that he had the vague shape of one butterflys wing and quickly added another, then the body and some more colour to the wings!

I have just booked an additional 3 craft fairs on Ludlow market.
Tues 26th June, Thurs 28th June and Tues 3rd July.
The famous Ludlow Festival starts this weekend.The play this year is ''The Comedy Of Errors''.
The opening night is on Saturday and it runs for 2 weeks.The town is heaving with people for the duration as there are loads of other things going on day and night.
This year the grand finale in the castle this year features Dodgie Williams and Kelly Monogue both tribute singers. As usual there will be a massive firework display at the end.
I expect we will do the usual--sit outside on the patio with a glass or 2 of wine listening to the music and watching the fireworks for free as we have a great vantage point from where we live!
for more info about the festival check out the website www.ludlowfestival.co.uk

Just read in the local paper that Prince Charles and Camilla will be attending the event and will be shown around by the president of the Three Counties Agricultural Show during its opening day.
There is so much to see here -its the 50th year for the 3 counties show and they are celebrating big time!
On Saturday night there will be the ''Legends'' concert which is a rock concert featuring top ''sound-a-like stars such as Elvis Presley,Freddie Mercury, and Tom Jones to name but a few--something we will be looking forward to very much-

I dont think we realise how lucky we are sometimes-just to be able to sit out on the patio and relax with a bottle of wine and listen to the birds and take in this beautiful view!
Since the farmer cut the grass a couple of days ago we can see the rabbits and birds in the field much better--trouble is so can Sparky cat.

You can see all his beautiful wing feathers have grown back beautifuly--they were clipped off very badly when we bought him 2 years ago.It has taken 2 years for them to get back to normal-he is a little beauty-although he terrorises poor Sparky to death!

I painted it during the class yesterday and finished off some of the poppy detail later at home.
We have had a lovely relaxing day today-went to the boot sale at nearby Leominster and bought another 3 furbies-all in good condition! I paid just 20p for one of them-bargain!
Back home for a lovely lunch of ribeye steak with salad and jersey royals, and a glass or two of white wine!
We are both stuffed now, so am catching up with some updating websites and copyrighting the latest paintings.
