sometimes I just want to give you all flowersA bit more than a week ago (give or take) many people seemed to need some cheering up. So for that week's strip I drew you some flowers...

I had every intention of sending them right away, I really did. But then, I thought, what is a flower without its colour? unfortunately, I'm back on the old computer, so colouring is question of making the stroke, then waiting for the colour to catch up with it. And when the old graphics tablet was made, ergonomics had not yet sensitised the pad or thickened the pen.

But they got here in the end. Pretend they came by camel, or courier pigeon.

Best wishes,


P.S. Please feel free to give them to anyone you think needs some flowers.

Thats beautiful and enigmatic.

I know,
I always compliement your strips, which diminishes (in my opinion) what i say. But i do mean it, else i wouldn't say it.
18th Jun, 2004 03:48 (UTC)

You have a way with making words ... tahnkyou, anyway
18th Jun, 2004 05:22 (UTC)
Oh shush
I'm on holiday. Kind of. Anyway, aren't you supposed to be acrediting young people?

Re: Oh shush
She won't be accrediting you for spelling though! Ho ho ho...
18th Jun, 2004 08:03 (UTC)
I could accredit her for online communication skills, though.

(rubs hands)

my targets are looking healthier already!

Re: perhaps
Can she do the washing up properly? I bet she can! I bet she has a few friends who can too!
19th Jun, 2004 02:04 (UTC)
She washes up charmingly for £7 an hour, anyway and since i'm the only one here acredited for online communication skills, i think i win. :D

I do like them. :) You knock me out.

Beautiful beautiful flowers. Please do a Cornish hedgerow some time.
18th Jun, 2004 03:58 (UTC)
uhm, now, let me see
At this time of year that would be dog-roses, cow parsley, buttercups, vetch, sorrel, stitchwort, red and white campions ... nettles!

And ferocious foxgloves.
18th Jun, 2004 01:21 (UTC)
Damn! How absolutely, utterly gorgeous. Surely the gods will reward you.
18th Jun, 2004 04:01 (UTC)
I feel kind of rewarded anyway ...
panel 6 your way (among others)
18th Jun, 2004 01:27 (UTC)
A thing of beauty. Thanks.
18th Jun, 2004 04:03 (UTC)
or is it just displacement?
something I've done to avoid sorting out my overgrown and aphid-choked garden ...
18th Jun, 2004 02:05 (UTC)
I will back-date them, and they will be much appreciated.
Think I'll print them and put them on my wall.
18th Jun, 2004 04:06 (UTC)
thankyou --
panel 1 had you in mind
18th Jun, 2004 04:28 (UTC)
Thank you enormously; I am immensely touched.
18th Jun, 2004 02:22 (UTC)
I'll grab No 8 with the sunflowers, it's just perfect for my ongoing "situation." Oh, and no 1, and 6 and 7 for me too for that matter.
18th Jun, 2004 04:07 (UTC)
I was thinking
5 for you but take all and as many as you want ;)
18th Jun, 2004 04:36 (UTC)
No 5...
Heh! Ranting is one of lifes sweetest pleasures for me, you shouldn't encourage me, the trick is getting me to stop!
All ranting pleases me, I love to hear other people rant as much as do it myself. Summat about hearing people get fierce about stuff they care deeply about, it's a good thing, shows you have soul.
Hmmm, Stress leads to frustration, frustration to rage, rage to ranting...perhaps that's why I need a dose of No 8 so badly.
18th Jun, 2004 05:08 (UTC)
that's OK,
I like cheering along to other people's rants.
18th Jun, 2004 03:56 (UTC)
Awww - I dunno what to say - stunning! Thank you!

18th Jun, 2004 04:11 (UTC)
seems to be going around, that ...
panel 2, coming your way
18th Jun, 2004 04:10 (UTC)
Numbers 2 and 8 are my faves

Lovely thought by the way!
18th Jun, 2004 04:13 (UTC)
ha h
seven to you -- for the sakes of the housies.
18th Jun, 2004 05:35 (UTC)
You just bust right through my sap monitor. Thank you so much.
18th Jun, 2004 08:32 (UTC)
and thankyou for passing on the flowers.
19th Jun, 2004 15:25 (UTC)
something to go with the graphics pad, ma'am?

it's a free bet at the moment - it may not work to well on old slow machines - but as it's ...free! - then it's worth grabbing & archiving the intaller, if you have the bandwith to spare.
there are hoops to go through - like having a hotmail acc tho - which is a bit poo, but lukily i had an old one to reactivate.

i did do some flower drawing in the blooms of spring - when they became hard to ignore... maybe i post one of those up sometime... maybe not... maybe put it in a wee book.
