The Watch Tower

Art Studio and Being Creative

Part of the double garage situated in the garden is used as an Art Studio. Guests may paint in here, or in the garden, on request.  There is no additional charge for use of the Studio itself but there is a donation box for use of the heaters. It's a good space, with lots of light, and two heaters but nevertheless is an uninsulated garage rather than a smart studio and is a therefore a bit rough and ready.

Wood Smoke

Before we even turn the corner

We smell wood smoke.

Lavender-grey,

Sweet smoke-trickle

Catches in the soul’s throat.

The drift of it

Something wistful

That keens the memory.


In the deep cave

Fire-scent holds home.
