This landscape was painted on spring mornings in 2011. 'Carreg Dhu' means 'black rock' and it is the site of a charming community garden in the centre of St Marys. It used to be a quarry but a local group created a garden here which is now mature but also constantly changing. There are many unusual flowers and plants here. It is run by volunteers who welcome visitors and locals alike to help in maintaining it. I am afraid I only paint there, but I have been involved in fundraising. I was near the entrance overlooking a little grassy area where I spied this lone rabbit.
