Sit and enjoy the moment- and maybe drink a cuppa with me. - for AJJ

In my garden there is.....................
Time to just sit and enjoy the moment.
A digital page for
 Art Journal Journey

First stages, of layering images onto my base,
 which was a photo taken in my garden in late May.
I wasn't happy with the pots in the left hand corner, the freedom of altering digitally is a big plus on these occasions.

This is the photo I used,  showing the steps up to the back of the garden  where we have a greenhouse, a wild patch and some apple trees.

Its is  also  T stands for  Tuesdays, over at
 Bleubeard and Elizabeths,

  I am dropping in for a quick cuppa with the T folk.
Its good to sit in the garden , this year our weather hasn't  been the best, but the garden still needs attention and my mug of tea can find a resting place anywhere,
even added digitally to my garden photo.

I am also adding a reminder for the current challenge theme over at
Try it on Tuesdays
which is Happy Holidays,
My page is certainly somewhere where I would like to spend some free time,
and I do, because  as you can see it is part of  my garden.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, its lovely to have your company.


  1. Wonderful page Yvonne, and your garden sounds great, especially that you also have a 'wild bit'. It looks a lovely place for a drink - do you serve coffee if ex-pats come to visit? Have a happy T Day, hugs, Valerie, and thanks again for being such a SUPER hostess for AJJ!

    1. Yes Valerie you would be welcome, coffee is also on the list of drinks served in here.

  3. Pretty pages using the photo of your garden. Looks like a wonderful place to relax!

  4. I'm in love with your garden, Yvonne. It is a genuine beauty. I don't think I'd ever leave if the weather was nice. To digitally alter it to suit your challenge is perfect. And a lovely mug in the garden is perfect for T day, too. I so enjoy how you use digital along with your own photos to create art that meets each challenge. And I agree that you are a super host for AJJ.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful art and tea with us for T this Tuesday. I'll join you since you serve coffee, too!

  18. Wonderful page Yvonne and I would love to sit right there

    Love Chrissie x

  19. The girl looks so happy enjoying a Summer's Day. I like how you removed the pots and replaced them with lots of flowers. I've been doing that in Real Life but it takes a while longer. Your garden sounds very interesting, I like the idea of a wild patch

  20. Wow, this is a beautiful page. What a beautiful garden.
    Hugs Carola
