My 'Garden'

I love these old wine boxes. I have been planting in them since we moved into this house. They stack up differently every year. And, every year I fill them with different blooms and herbs. They are right at our front door and offer a cheery greeting to all. This year I have some licorice plants, chocolate and orange mint and lots of blooms I don't know the names of. ;) I have some old broken clay pots that I 'planted' in the ground and filled with strawberries and more blooms around the yard. Our firepit area is surrounded by blue, purple and yellow pansies. We will be revamping that area this weekend. When it is done I will share more pics. I hope these little pretties will help brighten your day. It is 68 degrees here right now and GORGEOUS!! So I am off to play outside. :) Cheers!!

Look what else was bloomin'. This is a template by Lauren Meader for Papertrey Ink. It is the 'Let's do lunch' template. I used some My Mind's Eye Paper. And the cute crochet flower. I MADE THAT!!! Yes, lil' ol' me. That is my first crochet project ever. Check out Nichole's tutorial at Papertrey and try it yourself.

Another trip up Denali

Just in case you are interested in following along. I updated the link on the right side toolbar. He is guiding his second group of climbers, this summer, up Denali right now. Click on the Mountain Trip logo and you can follow their climb. Hoping they have a safe and successful summit. Love ya Rob. :)
