On Tuesday we are starting a new challenge at TIOT -
Let your light shine.
As always, projects of all formats are allowed, and you have
2 weeks to link your creations to us.
I have always been fascinated by the sun, moon and stars, and by
Egypt, pyramids and cats, so this journal page came together
very easily. The background was hand painted, the moon and pyramid
are photos, and the figure of Bastet as goddess and cat were
hand drawn and painted, as was the eye. I assembled it all
in my graphics programme, and added the stars (Mischief Circus)
At Tag Tuesday we are half way through Wilma's cake challenge,
so I made another muffin tag:
The muffin also leads us to Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday,
which is celebrating it's 4th anniversary today -
congratulations! I am looking forward to joining in the
I have a 'drinks' photo taken on the day we visited the Botanical gardens.
After leaving the gardens, we went to a lovely restaurant
in the middle of a garden allotment colony, and enjoyed
cake, coffee and cold drinks. I'm afraid we only have the empty
cups and plates to show:
The restaurant was surrounded by beautiful cottage type gardens:
From there we went to Süd Park (South Park!)
There is a farm there with some delightful animals. The farm and park
are cared for by mentally handicapped people, who, under supervision,
work with the animals,
do the gardening, and run a shop and restaurant there:
The goats found themselves a few inches of shadow on a very hot day:
This huge lady was enjoying her midday snooze and did not want
to be disturbed:
The gardens there are beautifully kept, and there are
lots of ponds and lakes:
Tomorrow I will show some of the fluffy inhabitants
of the lakes.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
