Hello Nyra, greetings from Ireland.
Yes those people loved their commission, and i put some work into it,....
I hope you are keeping well, and not feeling too bad, and you are in my thoughts. The heatwave is over now at least for a while and we got top temps of 29---31 degrees. Youknow we are not used to those temps., but i love the heat and hopefully it will come back. Graham was telling me that they also had a long heatwave in England and he enjoyed it...So i wish you all the very best , and take again soon....Michael

The amount of work in the representation of this tree is amazing!
We have similar trees here, but they bloom only briefly in the spring.

There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a cherry tree in full blossom, and as one gets closer hearing the bees hard at work buzzing from flower to flower. Lovely work on that beautiful tree Michael.

All the best,
