Attempts at clarifying the colours of a landscape produce a slow-growing collection of edible jellies. The jellies are made with unlikely plant material collected on walks in the Blackdown Hills, Somerset.

The colours are difficult to hold. Jellies that gleam on a sunny windowsill, glower dully on a disappointing day. And the occasional brilliant scarlet is only occasional within a repetitive distillation of quiet yellow-browns.
