I'm late again as been trying to do some gardening in between rain showers - but it turned out better weather than I thought and got quite a bit done.
There were a lot more bees about than normal, which is great since they are in decline here - but they didn't want me in certain areas and I had to keep dodging them, so being a coward and not wishing to be stung I buzzed off elsewhere.
Over at MooMania the challenge is using Valerie's wonderful photo collage for inspiration
I was attracted to the lovely rose and swan so went with that idea.
I have tried to use the colours in Valeries collage on my digital piece to work with my Rose photo and a nice quote I found.
As well as gardening the birds keep me busy
He hasn't got any children this year but is constantly battling to keep out intruders who really need the food more than he does as they have mouths to feed.
Even the intruders have become cheeky and come looking for food - one of them we called Scruffy' as he is a bit tatty and has a bit of a bald bit by his eye. 'Scruffy' has even sat on the window ledge with his nose (I mean beak) pressed against the window trying to attract our attention. I try and throw him some food but 'himself' always seems to be lurking and then tries to chase him off.
A little treat has just arrived of some 'Amsterdam' acrylics to play with... Dave got some 'Cobra' water soluble oil paints and since he has stored them in 'my craft room' I am assuming they must be for me too!
(especially as he has not done any painting for months. I will have to try them out and make sure they work properly for him).
that's my lot for now
thanks so much for stopping by
