No.37 – finished 21-Apr-2012 – April-2012 is a month when I’ve created the website  julasfairies.com. And this is a month, when I have composed the only one problem! It’s  not easy to be everywhere… plus being a beginner in the both – composing and managing the site. I don’t know yet what I can do better. Probably, the site 🙂  But composing is most exciting!

The problem below shows a play of 2 neutral pieces – Bishop-Locust and Nao. The both are very interesting by itself. And this is what they can do together!
