Today...



Our garden/jungle is looking like this (there is actually a house not too far behind this tangle -


but making me very happy is the promise of spring -

and my fav white camillias - (glorious pink ones are about to explode soon)-


and making our front entrance smell sweet, gorgeous daphne always lifts the spirits...

my first winter rose that hasn't died on me -


and my little patch of happiness -


Have I mentioned that I can't wait for spring???

A fun Lo now for the latest sketchy Thursday sketch. Heavily reliant on The Neighbourhood collection from Crate Paper (mmmm) with a half flower made from Tattered Angels tissue paper.




Busy week ahead with lots of visitors - must have clean house (ha!!).

Have a great day and will be back tomorrowish with the latest challenge from Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - this one I am looking forward to so very much (i will just say one piece sky blue velour jumpsuit with bell bottoms!!). Until then xxx.

I am so enjoying spring in your yard! It's weird to me to see daffys! We are in the midst of sunflowers and flocks, so bright purples and yellow! My cukes are ripe, the pumpkins are turning, and I might actually see a tree or two turning red! Thanks for posting those! Your page is really sweet! I love how you used elements to make up the half circle in the sketch, something I always get hung up on.
