New for April, Blooming Summer – a hazy, sun-dappled collection of greetings cards. Featuring flowers from a sleepy church in Norfolk, to a baking hot allotment in Chorlton, these dreamy images are hand made, blank inside and come in packs of 4, 144 x 144mm with square envelopes. Available here at Mark Wallis Design or why not pop into the Chorlton Art Market Hub shop in Manchester, where my framed prints are also available.

My sunny memories of childhood holidays in Norfolk have blurred slightly, like the faded glamour of an English seaside village. I’m the Time Travel Tourist, powered by nostalgia, jaunting back to the sand dunes and salty air of 1970s Scratby. Days were spent on bright windy beaches, and at night we retired to our charming, creaky wooden cottages on the cliff top.
When the sun shines, I worship. British weather is reliably unpredictable so the chance to roll around in the grass while I turn a strange shade of beetroot is something to be cherished. I watch dogs playing, butterflies skip round my head and my mind plays Perfect Day by Lou Reed. “Drink sangria in the park…” Mine’s a banana and strawberry smoothie, thanks. On the news, many thousands of people are rioting over the right to keep their green spaces…and their rights in general. Every second of peace, here, is a luxury to me.
