Enter stage left...the audience.


The audience is starting to appear. The lady centre foreground is going to be wrapped in a spotty blanket. She had acquired a glass of wine to keep her warm. Theatre dress is definitely skewed towards warm and weatherproof! Performances continue through wind and rain.(The audience also bring picnics, flasks, wine. I was offered a slice of home made sponge cake last time, by a lady sitting next to me! She had brought the whole cake in a tin! )

The plant right will go, to be replaced by a piece of stonework bearing some celtic carving; the theatre is full of it. Amazing that it was all done by Rowena Cade, in partly-set concrete! I will probably twine a little ivy or some such plant around the stone base to soften it. To the left the spears of Euphorbia will stay, their tiny round-ish flowers an echo of milady's blanket.

Like the perspective Sue - feel like I'm up there in the shadows with the rest of the audience!

I agree, the perspective really puts you in there looking down. Also if I'm not mistaken our friend the seagull is looking on approvingly.

Mr Seagull is certainly there, although he's had to take a back seat this time. Although he certainly has the best seat in the house! LOL!
