‘If you have a garden and a library you have everything you need’ ~Marcus Cicero

What a fabulous quote , anyone who knows me will have a small smile when they hear that quote. I love gardens, but hate gardening and boy do I have a library, when we moved into our house 5 years ago bookshelves had to be built…..

This image taken at Coleton Fishacre last week… Lots of playing in Lightroom with curves and Kim’s preset ‘days of old’. Moved into Photoshop more levels adjustment and 3 layers of ‘canvasmagic’ ‘oceanside’ and ‘stamped softly’

Linking up with Texture Tuesday, Tuesday Muse and Communal Global

Are you a gardener and do you have a library ?

  2. Our library is spread all over our house, someday it would be nice to have one room dedicated to all our books. I am having fun with one small area of my garden this year. Too big of a space and I get overwhelmed.

  3. Lovely peony…..I have one that's similar. This year, I photographed at least 75 different varieties in my mother's peony garden. The variety is just amazing!

  5. Your flower photo is gorgeous. I've had a garden a few times in my life, but found I don't have a very green thumb. Love when I can go to the Farmer's Market and get the fresh vegetables. Enjoyed my visit. Visiting from Tuesday Muse.

  6. Beautiful image and processing. Love the quote! Yes, I do have a garden and a library. I can get lost in both! Thanks so much for leaving a comment on FOL today. You are so very kind. You mentioned that you haven't been to London in awhile. It is a great city but can certainly understand why you wouldn't go too often. So many people! Kind of overwhelming really. Cheers!
