Summer? Autumn?

Hey there ...


My we are having funny weather ... yesterday it turned cold and it got so windy that it took down one of my trees (again)! ... I already lost my lovely lilac shrub and a couple of years ago I lost a beautiful Lavatera ... Now I know to some serious gardeners ... Lavatera is not the preferred tree ... seemingly because it grows out of control if you let it and the dead flowers can make a mess. But me - I like it! I think it really adds colour to an otherwise dark corner and fills a space. So I planted a new one last year and it bloomed recently ... an abundance of showy pink blooms ... and yep, down it came yesterday (argh)! Thankfully this time somehow it did not snap like the last one and Hubby and I were able to save it in time (phew). I lost a few branches but that's ok ...
See how pretty the flowers look on my table ...



... and today it has been quite warm ... one minute really sunny, then the sky goes black ... 

I have a card to share with you ... another birthday ... pulled out the Websters pages Cherry Pie for this



I printed my CS first with Shimelle's Spring time Basics ledger paper ... background and image are Websters and I printed the image twice so I could cut out those little cherries, coat them in glossy accents and add a little diamond dust then mount them on sticky pads ... 




The little birdie (eyeing up those cherries) is from Vinnie Pearce (digital) "Journey Back" ... A 
little piece of hessian and some tulle tucked under a covered brad which has been in my stash for ages ... The gorgeous lace by the way is a purchase from Ebay ...

That's me for now ...

Till soon - keep safe
