Friday’s Letters


Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have all had a peaceful week. I’ve been really enjoying interactions with butterflies and bees this week. Below are some photos of big fluffy bumble bees which I have noticed out and about, and also of some blackberries which are ripening up nicely.

Meg also sent me this lovely film of a butterfly in her garden (we think it is a Gatekeeper butterfly):

We are hoping to get back on site at St Nicks for October so I will keep you posted with creative writing class plans. In the meantime enjoy these lovely images and look out for tomorrow’s art challenge.

Best wishes,
