Life Lately

All this gardening has been my recent inspiration for a couple of drawing journal pages.

I am linking up to Gill's great challenge at Art Journal Journey: Inspired By.
You can see I have been busy having some garden fun. The dogs seem to enjoy some garden fun too.
Happy new week.

Goodness, when did it get to be Monday? Last I looked it was Friday night. Looks like you and your companions got a lot of work accomplished in the garden. What a lovely batch of flowers, too. Seems the new annuals will be lovely, too. Your helpers aren't dumb. They know to lay in the shade.

I enjoyed your garden inspired journal pages. They are really sweet. I think your drawings are so special and I absolutely LOVE them. Your flower and hanging baskets are adorable. AND, the best news is your hives are nearly gone. Let's hope they don't return any time soon. Thanks for being inspired by Gill's theme and linking these pages with us at Art Journal Journey. Enjoy your new week.

That's the best thing we can get busy with - GARDENING! I love your photos and I guess the dogs helped sooo much with the work!
I love the sketches - they are so pretty
you got the artistic stylish drawing meanwhile - you are loose and it looks artsy - that's exactly the piont!

Thanks for linking to Art Jorunal Joureny!I am also so happy to see your name on the collection.
I had such a nice and busy weekend with different guests visiting on Saturday and a barbecue with Julia's new boyfriend visiting on Sunday- the weekend just flew away for me ---as so often!

You've been busy in your beautiful garden. I think your garden assistants have the right idea. Relax in the shade. Fun gardening journal pages, too. Have a good day. Not too hot or cold to sit in a classroom. Happy countdown to last day of school
