Thoughts of You

I've been wanting to use the Boarding on Romance set but it seems I always end up using something else.  I like the flowers in the set and the long border that goes with the new Adorning Accents Edgelits Die has been begging me to use it as a border.  Well, I finally had the chance to listen and stamp with this set tonight and this is what I came up with.  I used the Twitterpated DSP for the background and the Loving Thoughts set to stamp the sentiment.  It is always a good time to send someone a card to let them know you are thinking of them, right? 
Did you know baby grapes started out so small?  It looks like I'm going to have a great crop of them again this year!  Grape juice is one of my favorite things.

The blackberries are blooming too.  In no time I'll be having blackberry pancakes, smoothies, and pie.  I also noticed that what I had been thinking was a mulberry tree the past few years is indeed a mulberry tree!  It has berries on it this year.  It is in the edge of the woods so I may have to trim a few trees so it gets more sun.  It isn't where I would have planted it but a bird saw fit to drop a berry there and it seems to like the location.  The birds helped me get the blackberries planted in the fence rows with my grape vines too.  I like birds! 

Here is one thing that kept me away from my stamps this week, I planted my garden!  I planted 4 rows of corn.  The other 4 rows are combinations of snow peas, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash and beets.  I always get excited when I'm planning and planting my garden but then the weeds start growing . . .

It is a bit hard to tell from the picture that there is anything there but dirt.  I know that there are lots of wild onions and Johnson grass roots there besides the seeds I planted!  I was hoping for rain after I finished planting but I didn't want the total downpour we got!  I hope the seeds are still in the ground.  It was way too muddy to walk down the rows and look for stray seeds.  I reckon by Monday afternoon I can get a closer look.  We will expect good things, right?
