Although I love flowers and gardening I am actually totally rubbish at it, but, around about this time every year, I see all the bedding flowers in the shops and I can't resist buying a few to add a bit of colour in my garden.
So, much to my son's disgust, I dragged him out to B&Q this morning where we bought a colourful selection of flowers and set about planting them back home.....in between the showers of course!!
I am also very happy today as my strawberry plug plant, which I bought a while back, has not only survived, but I noticed today that the first strawberry has started to appear! It is smaller than a pea at the moment, but I have great hopes for it and I hope that we get to taste it before the bords or squirrels!!
Talking of flowers, it's time to move on to my card for today, which has once again come from my Polka Doodles Sugar Plum Fairy CD. I have selected another lovely background and coloured the main character with my 'Pro's'. The background papers are actually from the Pretty Sweet CD, but , as Nicky Hall always says, everything on her CDs is always interchangeable!
Finally I have topped it off with soe ribbon and some lovely flowers from Wild Orchid ( Idon't part with these flowers very often, so I will have to make sure this card goes to someone special!!)
