Excuses why I do not have amazing things to show you on my desk, a south front yard looking east shot. the tall thing in the leftish back is an pergola with grapes growing on it, benches and a wood burning fire pit.
off to the right of that looking south is the veggie garden. ( what you see in those front boxes are mostly onions and garlic) the tall thing with the string on the left is for pole beans to climb. there are some tomatoes and peppers, Chinese peas and lettuce in the greenhouse.
one of the more interesting peonies has opened by the patio. ( didn't get shots of that) will do other parts of the yard later.
what you really came to see, yep. I have not been doing much. I am still mentally debating what to make for fathers day cards so, while I was standing there being blank I ended up ripping off a few more wood blocks and sticking them to cling foam. most of what's on the sheet are Elyzbells in the UK size. ( I think she joined the team at Penny Black after she closed her store so, not sure if she is still making stamps like these for them?) ooh above that is how the words from the coffee cups got cut down to, and I did use some on some cards that will peek next week when the tpd challenge goes live next monday. Thanks for stopping by & if you'd like to play along with us this blog hop starts here at Jan's blog while Julia is recovering.
