Hello dear friends!

We are so happy to have you visiting with us today.

We have been waiting for this hop, and season change, for some time now!
Birds are singing, kids are riding bikes around the neighborhood, pollen has covered everything (well...not quite yet in my neck of the woods), 
bees are busy buzzing around newly bloomed flowers  ... SPRING IS HERE (well almost)!

Spring marks the beginning of planting...but we in Southern Ontario we dare not plant yet!!
Actually today we are supposed to have a warm rainy day but tomorrow the forecast is for...
So I decided to get a jump on planting my herbs with my very own stylish little herb garden!!
At the front of my garden sits "Daisy Plants" from Fresh Brewed Designs newest digital release...found in the Daffodil and Daisy category!!

I painted an egg tray green...added some Spanish moss, clay pots for my herbs, daffodils and daisies, as well as butterflies cut from my DP paper for decoration and made a little card for the front...
and here is "Daffodil Plants"...
this series features Daffodil with her cat Daisy...
I decorated the front with two small clay pots, daffodils and daisies...
