Little did I know what was around the corner with total lockdown when one couldn't do more than a short 1 hour exercise and not drive to any location. Still the lockdown came to an end before the blossoms had faded and I managed to  I managed to  do some, and and also painted in the garden.

Painted from Salisbury Plain, facing west, a view of Roundway hill, the scene of a civil wall battle, can be glimpsed  between the bushes.
