Here’s one of our latest digi releases … Lupin.
Mr C & I have been increasing the number of plants in the Tidy Garden Nectar Cafe over the past couple of years (any excuse to go plant shopping really…) gathering a variety of insect attracting plants especially to help our bee population.
One of the most striking are Lupins and we’re fortunate to have a local grower (small field & a shed) who sells them for prices that would make garden centres weep with envy. So, we have got a ‘few’ (read as ‘quite a lot’) and the bees simply love them and we often just sit in the summer watching them stumble round their individual flowers prizing them open for the sweet pollen inside.
I’ve coloured this one in yellow & used it as the centre-piece for my card but I think this image would make a great embellishment too alongside a character or just a sentiment (going to try that next, I fancy doing a rich, red version).

Now…go dig out your seed catalogue…xx

‘Freesia Jolly Good Fellow…Freesia Jolly Good Fellow’
The other day, a lovely blogger asked if I’d design a Freesia digi as it was her mother’s favourite flower.
Now we don’t have Freesia’s growing in the Tidy Garden (which will be rectified this year) but what we do have ‘in da house’ is one romantic ol’ fool in the shape of Mr C, who, once he saw the digi request, took it upon himself to purchase a posy of said blooms for the house and for me to draw (literally) inspiration.
OMG…the pair of us have sat intoxicated by their sweet perfume all week wondering why we’ve never grown them before.
So you can get the Freesia Digi here at Janey’s Digi Designs
…and if you want to grow your own pot of loveliness, then Sarah Raven has a great page here for top tips & advice.

Call me old fashioned but I think the Icelandic Poppy Seed Head is a millions times more beautiful than when it’s fully clothed with tissue-like petals.
When Mr C bought these for the Tidy Garden last summer, I had strict instructions to keep dead-heading them to encourage more blooms, but I left (accidentally of course) one or 2 to go to seed…et voila!
You can get this dainty digi here at Janey’s Digi Designs Shop
