This and that on Saturday

Hi Everybody!

Today we had less sun, and although it was a little less hot outside, it will take a few days for my overheated apartment to cool down. At least it was pleasanter to walk about!

For Art Journal Journey, in my garden there is, I have filled my head with flowers and birds to cool off a bit:

We had a sunny start to the day again:

Lots of flowers:

The bees are busy:

 The apples in the field behind the house are growing:

Not many people were at the market on Wednesday:

And the horses were busy grazing, as always:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  4. Another lovely post, beautiful art and glorious photos. Hope the weather soon cools off for you. Hugs Sarah

  5. A gorgeous journal page, I love your take with the head filled with beautiful images, it must be a good place to be.
    Wonderful photos today. I have a question though...I wonder why, the horse has its eyes covered ?
    Have a good weekend

    1. I found from a friend who raises donkeys that they cover the eyes to protect them from flies. Evidently, some are bothered more than others.

    2. This is true, some horses really need them.

  6. Love this page Valerie. A mind full of beauty too. Brilliant pictures once again. Enjoy your week-end. Hugs Rita xxx

  7. That's a fantastic AJJ entry today. It may be a fantasy, but it's a beauty.

    It takes days for heat to cool in any place like yours. And because you live on a top floor, heat has accumulated there. It would be nice if you owned a window fan, because that would help remove the heat during the day and cool the place down at night. I'm really worried about you, dear. Stay as cool as possible, please. Heat stroke is nothing to laugh about.

  8. Sorry it gets so hot in your apartment. Here it gets very hot during the day but cools down at night. The flowers flourish with the warm temps and the horses are so beautiful. I also like your head filled with flowers. What could be better? Have a great, cool weekend, Valerie.

  9. I love that your heads are back again. This is a wonderful piece today. And the flowers are gorgeous. They must love this heat, and all the rain you had before the heat. I hope your apartment cools down and get comfortable again soon. Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika
