…..and afterNot sure I like the shrubs cut flat sided, so on Saturday I trimmed them a bit to make them look as though they looked little bit more of a natural shape!
Here's a shot you don't see very often - the view from my bedroom window as I got up - the sun throws a different light on everything in the early mornings!
My borage plants are growing - I'm quite pleased with my phone's camera for picking up the delicate hairs!The view from the back of the caravan.
The bees are still loving the overgrown mint…
…and inspired this page in my journal - which I am adding to to Bleubeard and Elizabeth's 'Summertime Love' at Art Journal Journey
I found a page in my old student text book about honey for part of this page - the rest is a Kim Dellow stem stamp and a stamp I bought in Paris which I stamped onto one of hubby's used Tea bag papers - the bees are on the same stamp and I used a water based pen to colour and stamp them.
Of course, I am also going to join Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday too!
Last week we (well I say we, but hubby didn't say long) went to a craft shop for a Craft Demo Day - lovely Leonie was there - it was she who started me on my inky journey all those years ago (up to then I was using card kits of printed images) and although I don't see her very often (except on TV) we do meet occasionally - sometimes in unexpected places!!
I forgot to take any photos while there but afterwards hubby and I visited Barton Grange Garden Centre - somewhere we used to go to regularly years ago!
It was quite late in the afternoon so the rush was definitely over..
..and we got one of the riverside tables to sit at
Hubby thinks my trying to get everything in the shot amusing but I wanted to show you my Almond Slice and his Lancaster Lemon Tart as well as his hot chocolate and my coffee!
I still have photos of some of our trips out to show you - I hope to get some of these organised for next time…unless we go somewhere exciting this week of course!
Thanks for looking and Happy T Day everyone!
