Happy Saint-Patrick’s day! And Happy Ostara! Spring is knocking on our doors!
Last weekend we sowed our seeds indoor in preparation for Spring and Summer. I’m very excited to be thinking about our gardening season. After only a few days, we have a few sprouts coming out: Cosmos won the race, followed by chamomile and calendula. It’s such a wonderful pleasure to see these plants grow from seeds. This year, I want to try and grow more of my own herbal teas. I’ve also experimented with cranberry seeds, and cross your fingers they sprout!
After finishing the poppy painting last week, I’ve started a new one. Can you guess what plant I’m featuring here? Hint: you probably have some form of it in your kitchen!
It’s a lot of fun to be working on these plant studies as I’m learning a lot of plants but also about painting them. I’m very excited to share this new one with you soon!
New in store
I drew these little hares this morning! I was very inspired by the eminent arrival of Spring. I stumbled upon this three hares symbol as I was researching my Ostara card, and it stayed stuck in my head. It’s a very mysterious symbol that has been found in different part of Europe and Asia. We’ve lost it’s meaning, but I like imagining stories around it, and I hope you’ll enjoy it too!
And if you enjoy hares, I also made this other colouring page a few weeks ago!
All in softness and imagination!

A small treat…
I made this for lunch this week, and it was delicious! I only used a little bit of sesame oil to pan fry however, and it was still a crispy wonder 🙂
