Not so bright today


Well the weather is holding and its really great.Although its not so bright  today but here's hoping it will brighten up,  My garden looks lovely and my Wisteria is stunning. its about 30 years old and looks better every year, I love the colour and will have to give it a real good prune later in the year,

 Another Sketch today This time from Sketch Saturday, See the sketch at the bottom of the post, 

Also spotted Diamond painting on Facebook and thought I like to have a go at this and you can send away for a free kit so thought  why not I love to try new things,  something new. Its really easy to do and so satisfying. Not sure why its called painting as you do not use any paint, I love it and have another coming tomorrow .

  1. Lovely to see you in the Playground Lilian with such a pretty card. Making the image into a triptych is perfect for the stamp you used! Wonderful wisteria as well - and the Diamond Painting looks like good fun as well.
