In my personal mythology I have often felt like the flowering seeds blow in on the wasteland, the railway embankments and roadside verges. Having lived my life in Cities I cherish the mighty small blossomings amidst the brick and concrete. 'Field of blessings' are a series of spontaneous responses to the voice of the land in my own back yard in Nottingham. In celebration of nature's gifts - I wanted to turn the attention of my city council to the aliveness of planting green spaces rather than even more shopping centres!
