grasses and wild flowers

I haven't done any crafting all week , with the beautiful weather I've been gardening,trying to tame the jungle that my garden had become, my neighbours bought their house twelve months ago and have never touched the garden so we have been inundated with weeds, she thinks the dandelions are so pretty and had just left them to seed everywhere ! anyhow, finally this week they have had someone come and start to do something about it. I'm not someone who likes a manicured garden but there are limits.Moan over for  tonight!. Anyhow what with weeding, clipping, planting etc I have also been washing everything that can possibly be washed, never gave a thought to the fact that most of it also needs ironing ........ huge pile of it now but its far too hot to even think of tackling it !  Anyhow tonight after enduring the Eurovision contest ( poor old Engelbert !! ) thought I would just finish off this piece that has been on the table for a couple of weeks. Background is Pan Pastels, stamps Indigo Blu and Inkilicious. Just sneaking it in for Make it Monday - Wild flowers and grasses.
