Grey Saturday, colorful flowers!

So today was a grey (weather like) saturday and I've spent the whole day in my little studio space working on a christmas stocking collage and a paper theatre. So much fun! The stocking is finished, but I suppose it's too early to post it and the theatre has a winter scene as well, so I'll better show you some more garden pictures which I took yesterday:

Oh, I am the first one to comment on this new post! ;-) Your blue watering can suits very well to the pink sweet peas. Fortunately, we had much better weather today than you had in Bremen. It was quite hot and very sunny! I am looking forward to seeing the things you created today.

Thank you for visiting my blog and your warm welcome. I hope I get some more visitors soon.
Your garden looks beautiful, I love sweet-peas. I would love to get into college, I have just got a book on altered board books, which is very interesting. I can't wait till you post your new work.

Carol you are a gifted photographer!!! To be so talented, wow. I love the picture of the pink flower with the blue watering can behind it. Just makes the pink pop. Also love the picture of your cat on the stairs with the ivy spilling over. I just can't say it enough. I love your garden. TWT

P.S. I too can't wait to see your stocking.

Your photos are beautiful. I'm so glad you decided to post some garden ones again today. My eyes, too, were drawn to the ivy and the blue watering can. Your garden is so delightful.

The look on your cat's face is priceless! "Here she comes again with that camera." I love it.

Just when I think you couldn't possibly outdo yourself on gorgeous garden photos, you do it again!

It's never too early to post Christmas delights!! I spent three hours last week dipping pine cones in wax for christmas (and winter) fire lighters.

Your garden looks fantastic.

Carol, your flowers are gorgeous. Do you ever press any for use in cards? just wondering...I used to make note cards using tissue that way.

Hulda said...

I can see it is still a lot of flowers, blooming in your garden. Here it is not so much at the moment. Very nice photoes!

Ingrid said...

Thank you for visiting my blog.. I used to translate my posts into english earlier.. perhaps I should start doing that agian?

Carol said...

Ha ha I think it's funny that so many of you are interested in seeing the x-mas stocking already, you are just like me, I would want to see it too! I'm already dying to see the stockings that Pam is going to create in her Silver Bella class! I'll post it this week, okay?

Lostroses, you've made me laughing out loud with your remark about Sammy's face. So true lol!

Bluebirdrose welcome to my blog! :D

All your comments are making me very happy and I'm thrilled that some of you think that I'm a talented photographer or even artistic! Wow thanks! *blushes*

Janet said...

Your photos always just stop me in my tracks but today even more so! The first one showing your cat looks very much like one of my cats. I thought "now how did Harley get to Germany without me knowing!!"
