My blog is about writing and illustrating children's books which I have been doing since 1974. www.gillianmcclure.com has all my books. I also have another blog: www.paulcoltman.blogspot.com where I publish my father's poems.
There's a stream near the River Rother where snowdrops grow wild in great white drifts on the banks.
For years I've gone there to see them. They come at a time of year when I can find a bit of stillness after the turmoil of Christmas. I associate them with bare, empty months when I can work again and a stillness that's becoming harder and harder to capture in our age of manic social networking.
There's a poem about them on: http://www.paulcoltman.blogspot.com/
