I was weeding in the garden yesterday when I found these, I havent looked them up but I think they are arisaema japonica. I love the silver splotched leaves and the funky looking flowers. So in some came for me to draw. I used pen and ink and my watercolour pencils. I find I am having trouble seeing small differences, my eyes are in some sort of trouble and more than I had realised. On Saturday a friend and I went up early to Adelaide to go to the bead and gem show, we had a lot of fun, didnt buy much but its amazing how it mounted up. We then had lunch, a wander around Glenelg and then some galleries on the way home, very pleasant.

Yesterday John and I went into Victor for lunch and then a walk and I rescued a piece of driftwood that as it was very wet I stashed away and hope will be there when I get around to getting it home.

We went on to an opening of an art exhibition that a friend was having, she does some very interesting stuff, and then home a pleasant day but not much got done.
