The simple joy......

......a garden can bring.
I love gardens and one of my biggest regrets about moving across the pond (other than leaving family & friends) was leaving my lovely garden behind.  The property we are currently renting does not really have a garden - just a very small back patio, a few shrubs, some grass and a back border of giant boulders and tall trees, home to various woodchucks, chipmunks, squirrels, skunks!! and a couple of deer.  I still try to make to most of my tiny space though and one thing I do love are topiary plants so my latest digi was drawn with that in mind.  I drew 3 different tree shapes and put them in 2 different pots (which I just had to add some appropriate text to but you do have to enlarge the pots to see that!).
Anyway they are available at Can You Digi It and I also made a card to do a test run - I'm never sure how they will look until I've done something with them!



I would like to enter this into the following -
