My window makes me happy

When I look through the window at our caravan I can see flowers, trees, shrubs but I can't see much wildlife apart from the birds but I know they are there!
I did see a Red Admiral today and we seem to be getting more flies and wasps in through the door. When I go closer I can see smaller insects, moths, slugs and snails. In the Summer some of the plants are covered in visiting bees. The Jackdaws have been very noisy today and I think the Swallows may be gone by the time we next visit, they have been gathering on the wires down the road!

I used a background that has been in my journal for a while and added some napkin scraps. The stamps are mainly Artistic Stamper and Sheena Douglas 

I am linking to Art Journal Journey where Corinne's theme is Through My Window

And also to The Artistic Stamper where the theme is Things with Wings.

I would also like to welcome my newest followers and say Thank You to all of my followers! I love to read your comments - and I will try my best to visit you when connections allow!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Lovely page - but also with a sense of wistfulness about it... it really feels as though the butterflies are making the most of the last of the summer flowers as the birds start to drift away on their long migratory journeys. Still, with a view like that out of your window, I can see why you're happy.

Your window is gorgeous, Chris. It is quite fitting for AJJ's challenge. And I like how you actually saw many of these things through your window. Of course, the photos around the caravan are simply gorgeous, and this time of year, everything looks so well kept, too. Quite impressive.
