I love flowers and I would love to have a FLOWERBED that resembles my drawing. Don't get me wrong, our yard has lots of flowers thanks to HWNSNBP's hard work, but they're mostly in pots and mostly of one variety due to the very hungry deer in our area. It has taken much trial and error (and $$$) to figure out what they will and won't eat, because you really can't just go by lists in books or on tags. If they're hungry enough, they'll chomp on things they've never eaten before.

I drew some flowers that we have had in the past - lupines, clematis, black-eyed Susan's, and the pink ones are vinca/periwinkle which we have found are deer tolerant.
I used gelatos (for the first time) and Caran d'Ache pencils for this. Then, after opening a package of some stamps I had recently ordered from Purple Onion Designs I thought this little bunny might be at home reading in the flower bed. So I stamped him and fussy cut him out. He's just hanging there for now until I decide to make him a permanent part of the landscape.
And speaking of bunnies, this is a picture my daughter-in-law had recently shared of our grandson watching the bunny under the stairs in their back yard. Apparently there are two and he seems to be fascinated by them. His highchair is near the window and he gets to see them while he eats his breakfast. I know you can barely make out the bunny in his reflection, but it's there.
Okay, so now it's time for a garden tour. Time to check out the FLOWERBEDs of all the Picnickers. You can tag along by clicking here. And make sure you pay special attention to Michael's masterpiece. He has hidden the FILL IN THE ________ object for next week's prompt in his drawing quite cleverly.
