The woodland floor has been carpeted with a sea of bluebells, setting the woodland alight with the glow of purple as the evening begins to set in. A young badger has ventured out of its sett to explore the surrounding woodland, to the Badgers inconvenience it has an itchy spot behind it ear. It sits amongst the bluebells squishing them in the process and has a good itch, ah 'That's The Spot'!

'Afternoon Kip' is available to purchase at https://www.nsltextileart.co.uk/afternoonkip With the warm weather we are having at the moment we could all do with an afternoon kip!!!
After a morning of swimming lessons, these three otter pups huddle together on the river bank surrounded by clover and grass for an afternoon kip. Tired from the morning events one has already drifted off to sleep in the warmth of the afternoon sun. Another was drifting off when its sibling interrupted him with a loud yawn!
