Flower Collages

I've loved looking at the yearly review posts that lots of you clever bloggers have put together.  Like lots of patchwork quilts, the images seem to combine to make even more wonderful pictures and give a lovely reminder of the year or month gone by.
Here's my first effort at collages using some of my favourite flower pictures from last year.  I used 
Pic Monkey and found it very simple, even for a techno duffer like me! 
 It's surprising how colourful the garden was last year, considering how little gardening I did!  Apart from the greenhouse plants all the rest just look after themselves and it's always a joy to see them return.  I hope you enjoy my little review of 2013.

  4. A beautiful array of flower photos. I must admit that I'd have great difficulty sifting through my photos and choosing some so I have respect for anyone who manages it.

  5. What stunning photos you've put into your collages. A lovely reminder of your year of flowers and brightens up this miserable dreary weather we've been having lately.

  10. Now, that is gorgeous and this non techno person would have loved to have done something like that, but instead made a list on my blog. (lol). Your garden always seems so cheerful and is giving me inspiration for our tiny new garden we will have at the end of this month. Take care,

  18. Your garden must be bursting with flowers as your collages are beautiful. I did look at PicMonkey and it's very easy. I will bear it in mind so thank you for finding that. Thanks for the sunny pictures, just what we need with all this rain we keep having.

  22. Such lovely pictures of flowers on a a day that started off looking like night time at 8 am! One almost forgets that spring is on its way...I just hope January and February aren't too harsh!

  23. Hi Debbie, these are beautiful collages, thanks for putting them together! Judging from the photos your garden must be an absolute dream in the spring! I can hardly believe that you are writing you didn't do much gardening last year and that the garden was basically looking after itself. I always think of flower gardens as high maintenance... Can you tell me your secret :-)?
