Nature's Wonders - what makes your heart sing?

 Hi everyone hope you've had a lovely Sunday.

Today I have a cute digital piece for AJJ Nature's Wonders
What makes your heart sing?  When I go out in my little garden and am among nature makes mine sing. And any chance of capturing the moment on camera and I'm singing an aria.

One day a young squirrel came into the garden and was running and jumping about like a little puppy. He was investigating everywhere and smelling the flowers.
I love this little squirrel, but he's a grey squirrel and I shouldn't really like him but I do.
The grey squirrels in the UK aren't native and over many years have almost wiped out our Red Squirrel through having a virus and taking over the 'Reds' habitat. But nature somehow nearly always manages to fight back and the good news is that the number of Red Squirrels and places it can be found is slowly increasing.

Digikits used: ‘Heartsong’ by Snicker doodles designs and ‘One fine day’ by G&T Designs.

Take time to smell the flowers

mmmm I wonder what this smells like

I'm only smelling the flowers - I won't break it - honest I won't!

Tired work all this running about the garden - I need a rest

I need a ...........zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I love all you've been creating this month...
and there's still time to play at
Nature's Wonders at AJJ

many thanks for stopping by...

  1. Beautiful page, squirrels can be so funny. I used to love watching them on the school playground in London. Here we just have the red ones, and I'm pleased to hear that the 'reds' are fighting their was back in England. Thanks for another wonderful page for Ajj, Gill. Have a nice evening, hugs, Valerie

  2. A wonderful post Gill. I love your pics, they are so cute! Great scrapping too :) In the absence of seeing any Red squirrels where I live I also like to see the grey ones. They do have real character and I never know what antics I will see when they are around!

  3. Oh Gill, what a wonderful page! And I love this quote.
    It's so interesting what you tell about your garden and the squirrels and that you love the grey one although you shouldn't. But your grey squirrel is so lovely and thanks so much for all those wonderful photoes of it (and your comments to it as well)!!

  5. What a cute little guy. Amazing how he loves those flowers. I've heard about the red and grey squirrels in the UK. I don't that means you can't like him-how could you not like this little guy? Hugs-Erika
