Wednesday

My give away draw will stop this evening - there is still room for one more! Meanwhile I will share with you my hand made books I made at the Frances Pickering workshop. They are nearly full now.

First J is for ....















Now 'Come into my garden'...


I have a lot of Euphorbia wulfenni, it fills in lots of spaces and always looks elegant. 


The darling buds of May were inspired by ...

clematis montana 'Elizabeth'  that fills the garden with perfume.


You may recognise the pink campion from the previous post.


Can there be any gardens without dandelions?

And finally the daisy, one of my favourite pages, at the moment.

I just re read an article by Frances Pickering in a 2005 CPS & have wanted to do a garden book since then. You inspire me to get on with it! There are a few other lovely garden books out there at the moment. Wonderful.

Thanks for your comment - I sometimes remember to wear those ugly skin colored wrist supports & every time I do I think 'I must embellish this'!

They are fabulous Jill... both very precious.
I especially like the shape of the garden one and the way you've sized the pages differently.
And I LOVE torn edges :-)
