Although I have finally moved into my permanent house and I do have a small backyard it will be some time before I can start to think about making a garden. Priorities have been sorting out my work and studio space, the main reason for moving, and trying to create a little order from the overwhelming chaos.
Without a garden visiting the local parks has been very important to my sanity
and they are also a great resource.
Drooping catkins, bursting buds and the early blackthorn flowers are all potential motifs to be worked into a silk scarf design.
It’s not just in the parks there’s plenty of new activity, but down on the Ipswich Waterfront building work on the skeletal ‘Winerack’ has begun after standing unfinished for over a decade.
It will be interesting to watch the framework finally become a fully, functioning building. Perhaps it will be a stunning, remarkable piece of architecture, but however it turns out I suspect the good folk of Ipswich will probably always refer to it as The Winerack.

You really do seem very lucky in your parks. What a fine resource. Good luck with making your new home your own. It’s a bit of a mixture of energising challenge, and occasionally feeling defeated, I find. More of the first, I hope!
Oh feeling defeated is such an accurate sentiment. Sadly at the moment it is mostly that and not feeling energised. Hopefully we will all feel more energised with some more of this sunny weather, thank you.
:(. You’ll get there, with that fine designing mind of yours. Good luck.
Thank you. Positive attitude here I come!
Good wishes for a new place.
Thank you. It’s most definitely a work in progress!
Hahaha. We have an apartment building near the Opera House that locals call “The Toaster”. Another triumph for ego driven architects.
Wishing you all the best with claiming your new space and making it your own.
Architects the world over such a bunch of shrinking violets!
And, thanks, going to be a long and stressful experience me thinks. ☹️
