Plants In My Yard…..a Beginners Guide

Standard

Finally warm enough outside for the plants to start coming in. Here is a brief tour…I do not remember the names of most of these plant-trees. I will refer to them as I call them IRL.

We have a pair of these lovely flowering trees in our front yard. I call them “Bee Food”

Under these trees sound like the revving of motorcycles in the distance…there are hundreds of bees…thankfully I am not afraid of them!

The packaging at the plant store lied….this shrub was only supposed to get to 12 inches across.

The ” I can’t remember if I planted these…or are they weeds???”

The “You better enjoy them while they last flowering tree…one good wind or rain storm and it’s about to snow pink petals up in here!”

Vintage Back to School Card

Standard

 Well….like it or not…back to school is right around the corner. I know this because we just got back from  marching band camp meetings at the high school for my youngest. I for one am not ready for summer to be over…I miss my kiddos already. 

Here’s a little card inspired by a vintage school book.

This image is super cute…I don’t remember ever having kittens in the class when I went to grade school lol. I layered my vintage image over pretty patterned papers, added a few tiny paper clips and my favorite Burlap with Red and White Edge.

Isn’t this a very coordinating bow???? There’s something about Red Gingham for school right?

Of course these trims came from Really Reasonable Ribbon..where else lol. Bonnie always has just the right trims for your projects. : )

Okay that’s it for me….I know I’m not the only one holding onto summer for as long as I can.  Maybe if I just don’t accept it …it won’t be over??? LOL That’s me….living in the world of denial.

I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) Huggs Ginny
