When I went out yesterday afternoon I did a quick watercolour on the top field of the nettle patch. When we were young we used to have boiled nettles as a green vegetable but you don't hear of it now.
I had the same problem as the night before. The water was drying straight away so the sky wash was less than perfect. Anyway a kite and crow were having their antics so it was still enjoyable.
This morning when I went up a skylark was making his tune and fluttering 100yards above my head. The first time I have seen or heard one there this year.
Today I made another crate for transporting my paintings.
