An action plan for the bees for AJJ

In my  garden there is.....
An action plan  to save the bees

A journal spread for this monthe theme at

If you follow this link HERE
it will take you to the board to see all the inspirational pages
 that have been posted so far this month.

The pages were sprayed with paint as well as mop ups from other projects, then  stenciled .
Once again I reached for my free magazines,
where the main scene was fussy cut.
Some of the bees were added digitally after I had taken the photo.

Bees are attracted to bright colours, and I liked the 2nd point on the list
 to cut the grass less often.

Thank you for calling in to see me , your visits are always welcome.


  1. Wonderful page Yvonne, thanks for another great and interesting contribution to AJJ. Hugs, Valerie

  11. I LOVE it, but cutting the grass is the one thing I have to do, because I don't want to get in trouble with the city. If your grass is over 6 inches tall, you get fined, so I have to cut what grass I have. BUT, I keep enough wild patches that more than make up for the bits of grass I have to mow. I agree with all the others and practice each of the other points, too. They just make good sense. I have never used pesticide and have considered getting one of those certifications that show my garden and yard are pesticide free. But, since I don't sell my herbs, and it costs a lot of money for the testing, I'll probably never do it.

    Boy, did I veer off topic! Still, get me started when it comes to bees and I'll talk all night! Your AJJ page is a dream come true.

  12. Love your cheerful garden page, Yvonne, and I love the background you've created. Nice job!

  13. Your lovely bee pages are so alive and colorful... a perfect place for beezie weezies!
    We have some creeping thyme growing through some rocks and I was delighted to see lots of honeybees and bumblebees there. I think we need to plant more of that :-)
    Without our beloved bees we would be in big trouble wouldn't we.

  14. What a great page Yvonne. I'm loving the use of the magazines in your pages! Very summery! hugs :)

  15. I saw that action plan and love how you have made this spread! I have several 'wild' places now and we saw plenty of bees at the weekend! Hugs, Chrisx
