I had so hoped to join in more with this - you know how I love gardens, but sadly I have been rather busy lately!
I used some Inktense pencils and a water brush down one side of the page in my A6 Pink Pig journal/sketchbook
I then stamped randomly with parts of some Carabelle Studio stamps.
I stamped, coloured and cut out the Carabelle Studio leaves (I had been using them for something else too)using some smooth card.
We are hoping for gardening weather over the next few days - we didn't get much done last week!
Luckily there had been enough rain to keep things looking fresh!
Unfortunately too much rain for this Hydrangea - I think it will need pruning in the Autumn
I can never remember the name of this yellow flower - but once we had rescued it from being strangled by ivy and hawthorn it has bloomed beautifully.
The decking is looking good this year too.The Fuchsia in the little border by the wall is overshadowing the little Lacecap Hydrangea...
…and right at the back has gone a bit wild - but my tree stump is still rotting away for the insects and the bees love this area
Thank you for your kind comments of late - I really will try to catch up with everyone next week - in between medical appointments - and other exciting stuff -it's going to be one of those weeks!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
