Creative moments from Anston Stones

Creative moments from Anston Stones

Anston Stones is my playground, its right on my doorstep and the place I go to be inspired by the surroundings, the changes in the seasons and the abundance of resource from which to inspired.  I get feedback from people who bump into me when Im playing and company from my dog who is normally in tow and also the wildlife that seem to accept me the longer I’m there. Had some lovely encounters with the Kingfishers that have resided there this year and often have a Jay that happily hops past along the woodland floor.
