Lockdown Creativity - Our Quarantine Garden

Updated: Apr 1

Throughout the Coronavirus Pandemic I have been shielding at home due to underlying health problems. During this time I have created a patio garden full of flowers and mosaics that has become home to lots of insects, including some Painted Lady butterflies that I have watched develop from caterpillars. The garden has been a good distraction from the sad and frightening events unfolding around us - a peaceful sanctuary

My feather mosaics were inspired by the Emily Dickinson quote:

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops - at all
