A house I used to live in as an art student in 1992. It still looks exactly the same with the same yellow door but the oddest conversion has happened of cutting the house in half right down the middle to make 2 maisonettes!

A brilliant fun time. I hope they have the Chocolate Festival again next year.

Chocolate path, Bristol

The chocolate path is a cycle path by the river Avon in Bristol and is renowned for its chocolate like paving. The river is tidal and is a mixture of sea water and river water. The river looks chocolatey today and the water is very high.

I think I prefer the waterfront in Winter. The light is so dramatic and I like the inky black and gold reflections in water. I always feel like I am on holiday when I walk around the harbour.

My garden

Images of my garden, Cotswold Road, Windmill Hill, Bristol. I like to keep my garden wild and natural so I feel like I am in the countryside in contrast to the industrial views that surround me. In the olden days it would have been a traditional Victorian kitchen garden. One side has no fence just ancient shrubs. I have an apple and plum tree, a pond with frogs, a fire pit and a river/stream at the end of the garden.
