After my husband died, my son and I created a place in my backyard where we could just sit and relax...quiet, calming, full of wildflowers and birds. When things got hectic, I'd grab a glass of iced tea and head for the patio, sit in my chaise and just breathe in nature.
I created the background paper [which you can barely see!] from a photo of my wildflowers. The frame says JW_overlay; but I cannot remember the designer. I changed the color to match the page. The butterflies are from Stellarific's overlay [thanks Stella!] and the little worm I captured somewhere on the net. The dragonfly is from miscellaneous elements I have, but don't remember where I got them. If anyone recognizes the critters or the frame, please post it. I want to give credit where it is due.
The pictures are all from my garden.

What a beautiful backyard. Creating a living space is such a wonderful way to remember someone who is gone.
