I think I have said before how amazing it is the way plants just pop up. They seem to have the ability to grab hold of any tiny piece of soil take root and start to grow. I found this one the other day, there was just the tiniest amount of soil in the pot  but it seems to be thriving with no attention from anyone. Wonderful stuff...

...and wearing my other hat, if you live in Wanstead or the local area you may be interested in this lovely experience..

Create a stunning image...
with local Wanstead artist Wendy D'Souza Daniels.

You will create a stunning image using PaperArtsy acrylic paints and stamps, Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers and colouring pencils. There will of course be the usual tea, cake and chat, we look forward to seeing you on the day.

  1. Yep, plants sometimes grow in amazing places. I really like this image of a new plant in an old pot.

    1. Thank you, I'm pleased you like it, a bit of old and new.

  2. Pretty. I would like that but Wanstead is just a little out of reach of the Paris métro!

    1. But what a good idea! Dig another tunnel and link the Paris metro and the London underground..fantastic!

  3. Really lovely image Geoff, it's amazing the improbable places you see touches of plant life growing.

    1. Yes I'm always on the lookout for those odd spots that plants find..
