Devon Open Studios runs for two weeks in September and is where you get to have a nose around artist studios and workshops all over the county!  There are hundreds of artists opening their doors and it really is worth having a look at all the creative talent out there.   We are always open here but please do come and have a look at the new work I have been making.  For details of artists exhibiting in your area check out www.devonartistnetwork.co.uk

Other news:  we now have spring flowering bulbs for planting up now.  Also as the summer blooms start to fade we now have autumn/winter bedding packs of cheery pansies and violas amongst others to brighten up a gloomy day!

A Week In Devon

By Helen, 04/12/2009 10:33 pm

Its been a week since we packed up our whole house and life  in the flat fens to move down to the rolling hills of Devon.  Its certainly been a week of contrasts  from  mild drizzle setting the scene for our arrival then ending the week with sharp frosts.  Not only have we had to get used to being here but our car has suddenly got to cope with  driving up hills!   I  opened the curtains on out first morning here to see 3 deer munching at the hedgerow, pretty to look at but they better keep away from the nursery.  Have also spent several relaxing moments  watching the kingfisher with its dash of electric blue flit amongst the leat.  All very idyllic except for being woken up by extremely noisy owls tap dancing on our roof!  Who said the countryside was peaceful!  We still have a lot of unpacking to do but have managed to clear some space in the workshop to make some more glass Christmas decorations after selling a couple in the shop this week, just the incentive to get me creating.
