there should be hummingbirds

I'm feeling kind of sad for my Penstemons. They're bird-pollinated, nothing in this country will do the job. There they are, all rouged up and running a riot and nothing can even get to the nectar.

It's pretty hot. The ground's getting quite solid out there. I'm getting a gardener's tan.

I took today off in order to muck out the studio. Piles of old sketches into the blue recycling bin. Story after story never finished -- Summer in Space, Blanche Goodchilde, Wings of Summer, Dandywatch, Greater Keynes. Took a pen audit. Turns out I have quite a lot of them.

Completely forgot to see if the steam-cleaner has a wallpaper stripping attachment. Maybe I should check that out now.

This also happened today:

  • 13:47 Got so far moving my ikea unit out of the studio, then the kitten colonised a drawer. Little fluff! It's blocking the whole landing.
