Missing the veg patch

Sorry for the delay... Spring sprang, the garden went wild and someone had to tame the jungle!

Husband had a huge gorgeous art shed installed on my veg patch two years ago, which i didn't think I'd miss... but I did.

So a friend with strong muscles came over and helped dig these three patches for me to plant

Yes I know they look rather like three graves but I promise you there are no bodies beneath... just veg seeds.

They have been planted since and I'll let you know how they are getting on as they grow!

Bluebells Don't Have to be Blue!

Here are some of the Bluebells we had in our garden this year...

Traditional blue (not totally traditional as these are the Spanish type that are sweeping the country, rather than the smaller native type, but still lovely!),

White (clump forming rather that little black seed-balls going everywhere to take over the world like the Spanish ones)

and pretty in pink.

All gone now and the remaining leaves turning to slippery mush and giving an annoying hiding place to the slugs and snails that are out to ravish my garden!

Catch up Bujo pages

Can't t remember... did I show you these?

That's my month of February in pictures. 

And my petals recording what I crafted in March.

April Bujo pages

I think I forgot to show you these, so here are some other April Bujo pages before I move through the rest of May and into June!

In fact I think I might have a couple of  March and Feb pages left over.

May Bujo design

I don't know why but, colour-wise, May just is lilac to me!

This is my calendar before I wrote anything on it

And similarly, my to-do lists, which are now full to overflowing with stuff remaining or done.

Life has taken over recently, I have not given my bullet journal the attention it deserves and, as a result, have lived the the kind of turmoil that comes from not keeping track of what is coming up next. I have forgotten several things so will now attempt to get back on track!

Drawings from the Big White Book: Russian Dolls

For these, I made a cardboard cut out in three different sizes, started with the front row and drew backwards from there, so they look like they are standing behind each other in a crowd.

Then came the fun part of just filling the patterns in.

And yes I know that they wouldn't all fit inside each other like traditional Russian dolls, but think of it more like a convention of dolls from various different sets having a get-together : )

Drawings from the Big White Book: Reflections in the water

Here's another pen and ink drawing- sunset in the woodland.

I think it would do my head in to actually colour this!
