How are you all coping? Half the time I’m not even sure what day we are on, and I suppose it doesn’t really matter. After a little emotional stumble in the week I remembered that Saturday is my work day. I’ve been counting down the hours until I get to sit at my ‘new work desk’ in our house. Okay the work doesn’t look like it used to – its not snipping stems, or arranging flowers, but its some time to spend on my business every week.

One of the things I’ve missed most is arranging my flowers. I probably didn’t appreciate at the time just how much joy this skill has brought me. We don’t have much in our garden at this time of year but I will be hosting a Easter Wreath Tutorial next week. In the meantime I thought I’d pick up another passion of mine – drawing. It’s a skill that has been much neglected over the years but in these  (queue Covid-19 catchword) strange and uncertain times its a quick easy medium I’ve been reaching for. I thought this week instead of my usual virtual bunch of flowers to you, that you might like a bunch of anemones you can colour in yourself. It has tied in nicely for me to learn how to create some digital art (although very primitive) a skill I’ve been meaning to spend some time on for about 8 years.

You can download a PDF version of the artwork here: ANEMONE

If you decide to either colour on a digital device, or perhaps get your hands dirty and reach for the watercolours I’d love to see your images, so please email them to me emma@greenparlour.com
