In my garden there is...... for AJJ

Another sunny and hot day in UK (well in my part) - making the most of it as the last few days may have been our summer for this year.
and in my garden there still is a noticeable lack of bees and insects again.. unless maybe they have found somewhere else to go and have more fun.... I do hope they come back :)
A digital piece and other than the 2 tiny realistic bees, the rest I made myself using Serif Craft Artist and Serif Draw Plus software.

Thanks for stopping by
Have a lovely day

  3. Wonderful piece, so pretty, well done! We have plenty of bees and insects here, the wasps are everywhere again, and something stung/bit me yesterday, don't know what! Have a lovely day, hugs, Valerie

  4. Love it :) Great elements and background too :) It's been a little quiet for bees and insects for me too.

  5. Fun, cute and beautiful page!
    Have a lovely day 😃

  6. Your fun loving bees made me smile.
    We seem to see fewer honey bees and butterflies in our Virginia garden too.
    Even though we don't use pesticides or poisons in our garden there is enough of it around to be affecting nature unfortunately.
    Happy summer days to you Gill.

  7. This digital piece really makes me smile! I love those bees! J :-)

  11. This is so cute!! I love the pink color in the background and the quote too, but especially the bees and of course this little green frog!

  12. This is tremendous. I love your bees with "Attitude". The flowers are all lovely and I like the frogs too, in fact I like everything here. I don't know these two programs; you've got a marvellous effect using them.

  13. Hi Gill
    Just calling in from Try it on Tuesdays, to answer your question about digital art.
    Yes we do accept these creative pieces as well, as long as they are within the theme.
    Your wonderful piece on this post , would be super for our current theme of Make us smile.
