In My Garden There Is ...

At  ART JOURNAL JOURNEY
 our hostess this month is the lovely Yvonne!
She has chosen a wonderful theme ....
IN MY GARDEN THERE IS

I like my garden  - it's the garden of a non gardener - I am not very talented in gardening,
but I try my best since we bought the house five years ago.
Last year I planted peonies but they didn't bloom - I was disappointed but heard that this is normal with these. This year they bloomed wonderful. First they started in a kind of light antique pink color but then they turned out really white with a touch of pink inside.. I was very proud of them - yes.








They inspired me to a page in my Journal .... my first one for the new theme-


and hope to see you at  AJJ     in July!

Thank you for your visit and all your lovely comments you leave me here!
They are much appreciated!

  2. I have the very same peonies- they are such beautiful flowers! Just like you I am not a great gardener but I love to see things grow there lol. It's easier to grow flowers on paper than in the garden!

  8. Lovely flowers Susi and such wonderful inspiration for your beautiful page.

    I haven't forgot about the water soluble paint information but I got side tracked sorting out my new pc and windows 10.

    Hope the weekend going well for you

  15. Oh definitely a really lovely illustration of the pink-white peonies - and the intense blue of the background shows them off brilliantly.

  18. I've never tried peonies. I stick with things I _know_ will live, and then sometimes they don't make it. Yours are lovely!

  19. Oh, those peonies are exquisite and your journal page really captures their beauty! Wonderful :-)

  20. Your beautiful peonies inspired some lovely journal pages liebe Susi!
    Once they get established they bloom for years and years and years. They do not like being moved though. Yours have found a perfect home now ♥
