Yes, folks, I'm back in those lovely cottage gardens for this post. This time I've been thinking about the lovely wild garden areas that several of the gardens included. It's lovely to see that gardeners, local councils and farmers are now helping to preserve the wild flowers and grasses that our butterflies, bees and other insects love. And they look beautiful too!
The ones we saw were studded with poppies, buttercups and ox-eye daisies. I did try adding white dots with a gel pen to represent the daisies, but couldn't get them to show up on the stamped background. However I've been collecting some ideas from my Facebook friends, so I may well be back in a few days' time with a revised version of this card.
The tiny punched butterflies represent the Chalk Hill Blue, which is often spotted around the area.
I am sharing this with
