First Peony: Layout for Scrap Africa DT
Hi there! Here in Finland, this is the time of the year when we are welcoming the crisp cold mornings, scent of apples and first falling leaves. At Scrap Africa, however, we have a mood board that still reminds of summer. A perfect time to scrap your favourite garden or nature photos from this season, or anything this mood board inspires you to make, of course! I planted my first peonies in 2012 at our summer cottage, and they have bloomed very scantily so far. From what I've heard, peonies are not difficult to grow per se, but they do demand some patience from the gardener. They can take many years to grow large enough roots to be able to bloom fully. So I'm not worried yet, even though just three of my five plants have bloomed at all and only with one flower each! This is what the mood board looks like: I'm also joining the following challenges with my layout: Memuaris: Sketch Challenge #21 Scrapki-Wycwaniowo: Autumn Love Crafty Life Challenges: Anything Goes and We Love 2 Create: Challenge #21, Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes In Finland, our school year starts early, mid-August or even a few days before. So now it's already time for a short autumn break, and we'll get to spend a long weekend at our cottage again. I love it in the fall season, too, and can't wait to see what it looks like! Thank you for your visit and have a nice week!
