Do you know the names of some common wild-flowers? We wandered up the lane beside our house to find some.
 It was a typical Irish summer's day. About to rain.
Lots of painterly skies. I do love clouds.
We found poppies, cow parsley, buttercups, vetch, dandelions, herb robert and greater stitchwort. The dogs bark as the thunder rolls in.
We lift out the watercolours. I paint the vetch. I like its tendrils and heart shaped leaves.
William draws, observing so carefully he finds a teeny, tiny spider.
And then paints the herb robert.
