On my desk, wednesday

Running running running all day. Too many things to do, so little time.
Our garden has exploded with this tropical weather we are having in The Netherlands... rain, sun, rain, sun. Plants grow like crazy. And yesterday, first dry day in....weeks, we went out and put some order there. You know how plants are...when you aren't looking everything gets out of control. And, our friends the moles came back, so we have nice mountains all over the garden. Great for plants (the tunnels they make give air to the soil) not so good for the gardener...us.

But, in keeping with the garden theme, this is what I was working on today (I started it months ago!):


Iit's a flower garden... sort of a bug view. Quite similar (or style like) a few handpainted tiles I made a month or so ago:




Anyway... is it wednesday already???? wow. Gotta go...

Love the bug's eye view you've got going on!

Luckily, no moles in our garden...yet...but that's probably 'cos they're all enjoying yours too much over there!!

You know, all our neighbours decided to thrown a million tons of cement and concret in their gardens... so the creatures come here, to the natural haven... all good if it wasnt because that means more work for us! Im not Dr Doolittle! :)
