Forest Garden


Beautiful May is blooming, so my colours are blooming too, reflecting all the abundance in nature as it swings into Summer!


Outside our home we are right on to the forest with all its treasures, we came upon this wooden cabin made by the faeries for Lulu to play in.


This is our forest garden, such a peaceful, quiet place.

A Journey through the Spring Gardens


These cats are having a peaceful days outing in their favourite gardens, the sun shining bright, the scent of fresh grass and flowers blooming, a perfect day!


Spring is blooming, days of rain, wind and sun shine all mixed up, but oh how the colours delight when the sun does shine and below is my season's strawberry jam bubbling away on the hob, can you smell that sweet scent of strawberries?

Sharing our trip to the Perfume Museum Gardens, it was such a treat for the senses, so many sweet scents, such a delight and a beautiful blue skied day to go with it all!




Mousey and Sweetie enjoyed a little rest in this olive tree!

Linking all of this to Art Journal Journey, the theme this month is "journey." I hope you enjoyed this little journey through the scented gardens with us.

Amongst the Flowers


They sat happily amongst the flowers, enjoying the sweet scent of the day!
I hope you too can stop a while and enjoy a quiet moment in  the day, to gaze, dream and simply be!

Let The Sunshine In









I'm Linking these journal pages to Art Journal Journey where the theme is "For the Record, Songs that Inspire."
With the first bright sunny Spring days I had that old Hair song "Let the Sunshine In" in my mind when playing with these pages and so filled them with sunny light!
I hope the sun is shining your way, or will do soon!


Also sharing some collage fun, tearing out pieces of old magazine is a thing I love to do, bits of this and that, that have meaning or just appeal to the eye.

I have a little moon diary I keep notes in and also love to add little bits of torn magazines to decorate the pages when I no longer need to read the notes taken for those days.

La Vie en Rose


I made this for Art Journal Journey, with words that inspire, Edith Piaf's "La Vie en Rose." 
A classic for sure!
Wishing you all a beautiful "Vie en Rose!"

Below are a couple of shots taken up on our holidays last week


I love this mansion below, such a totally enchanting place, we had a great time!


 When we got home the view from our window was all green after the Winter browns, in just the week we had been away the forest turned green, such a welcome home!

The Green Circus


Deep in the woods the Green Circus Folk play, juggling leaves in the wind, having fun and practising for their special show.
I love to find them and have a peek and thought I'd share a little of their green magic with you!

The trees outside have their first signs of green budding, It's wonderful how the green grows at this time of year, I feel my own green energy too slowly budding.

I won't be around next week, as we're off to the mountains for a family holiday. The weather is very unstable and we're probably going to be in for many rainy days, still we'll find the beauty in that too, time for splashing around and watching the world turn green!

In The Woods








Here's wishing everyone a Happy Spring/Easter week-end. These are some collage cards I made with little flowers I painted inspired by the beautiful wild flowers you can come upon in the woods at this time of year.






The trees are still very bare, awaiting their first buds.




Lulu playing happily in her favourite woods.


There are many beautiful wild flowers in the bottom field here below, we love to go and sit down here on a sunny afternoon.
