They're lovely. I like how they are charming but make us think about time, too.

My favourite recent on Colossal was this one, the textile underwater pieces. Although there's that irony about textiles and climate change, too, which bitterly undercuts the artwork imo. But despite that, I still can't help thinking they are beautiful -

They're pretty; thanks for sharing, Sarah-Jane.

The natural world is ripe with poetry potential. I confess to an aesthetic interest in strangely shaped vegetables, such that I've written a poem inspired by two potatoes grown in the Winchcombe garden. This was published in Snakeskin last month; thanks again to George. I've seen some interesting carrots in my time too!

Last August, my mother was just showing me Dad's vegetable rows, when we were both seized by some sort of artistic fit. We set about making patterns of leaves, all the while laughing wildly. I'm still not sure what happened, but it was a lot of fun anyway

Best wishes,
Fliss
