I was so inspired by Vicky of Lovejoy Minis' recent post about her gardens, both real and miniature, that I just had to go out to my own garden and attempt some photographs myself. First, I went under the grape arbor and found my favorite peony in bloom:
Then this bumble bee was hard at work on another flower in the shade of the arbor:
Aaaahhh! We have a field of foxgloves this year! It makes the whole garden feel magical!
The patterns inside the foxgloves are so intricate.
There are lots of lady bugs in the garden.
This last photo is my favorite. Do you see the bumble bee hard at work? Wow! Click on the photo to see it close up.
For more gorgeous foxgloves, and a sneak peek at Vicky's miniature garden, check out her blog post here.
I recently received this beautiful award from three sweet people, Maria of Pretty Things Ireland blog, Maribel of Miniaturas Isabel blog, and Carmen of Mi Pequena Evasion blog. Maria is one of the sweetest people ever, and every time I read her blog I feel a big wave of love hit me. Go see for yourself and tell me if I'm wrong! ;-) Thank you so much, Maria! Maribel leaves wonderful comments herself, and her blog always shows something interesting, from her miniatures to her travels, with beautiful photographs. Don't miss it! Thank you so much, Maribel! Carmen is one of the most creative miniaturists I know, and she has so many mini friends. You must see her blog to know what I'm talking about. Thank you so much, Carmen!
As always, I share these awards with everyone reading this blog. Your presence makes blogging fun and meaningful. Thank you so much for being here and for leaving your sweet comments. Keep having fun! xoxo Jennifer
