Sketch #98 with A Day For Daisies

Hello and welcome visitors old and new to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for our latest challenge.
It Kathie here from New Zealand and a slight chill is still in the air but I must say we're enjoying these beautiful spring days which I can't get enough of, especially after a very damp wet winter.

I love this time of year working in my office at home and also creating cards, I hear one of New Zealand's native birds in our trees they are

Tui's


 and they love Taiwanese Cherry or Prunus Campanulata flowers which flower in early spring.


I counted 21 birds in the tree the other day, the nectar from the flowers is like a drug to these birds they dance around from branch to branch chasing each other like young lovers, I've even seen one fall out of the tree once and flew straight back up to another branch.  Once the flowers have gone and leaves come, the Tui's disappear to other trees.  This nectar must by like a cheap happy drug to them in the way in which they act and doing no harm to anybody.

We would like to invite one or more of your to join us as a Guest Designer in a future challenge.  If you would like to be considered please put 
GDT after your name when you enter.

Anne will be back a bit later with our winner from the last challenge.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2-96- Doodle pantry.

Hello and Welcome….Heide Here from MI and I am your hostess this week for Sweet Sketch 
Wednesdays 2.
                                                           

Wow! Can you believe that it is already the end of August? It’s almost Fall. Time for Pumpkins, colorful leaves, cooler crisp days, and School.  That is unless you live Where Kathy (from the DT) lives and I believe it is spring for her.  Fall is one of my favorite times of the year!  I have already seen Mums at the stores. Which is good because after all this heat from this Summer, my flowers are looking super scraggly and need to be changed out and I think Mums are just what I need on my front porch.
                                             Image result for fall Mum images
