The birthdays are coming thick and fast at the moment. I composed this illustration today based on the recipients interest in Beethoven's music. I created part of the illustration from two different paintings of Beethoven I found online and the rest I made up.
It is a cold, rainy, wintry day today after yesterday being the hottest September day on record at 34C (93F). Quite the contrast! During the week I took a few photos of things flowering in our garden.
