Mo's Weather Related Challenge

The challenge on Mo's Challenge Blog this week is to make a weather related card. I had printed this image the other day and thought it would be perfect, because for me, as soon as the weather changes a little and the first hint of spring is in the air, it is time to start getting my seeds planted and my pots ready. And a lot of the time I feel like I am standing at the door, holding my pots, waiting no so patiently for it to warm up enough to bring them outside. My card uses an image from Mo's Digital Pencil, paper, flower and brads from my stash.

My plants are growing! I have several little tiny tomatoes that are growing. Tomatoes and cucumbers are what I most look forward too every summer. I have been getting a few strawberries too, here and there. I have been fighting the birds for them and I think they are actually getting more of them than I am which I am not so happy about.

Speaking of little girls ready to grow some stuff; here is a picture of Samantha with her tomato plant. Ever since I have known her and she was a tiny little thing, she has loved tomatoes. Since she has taken such an interest in gardening, my dad sent her a tomato plant of her own. This is a tomitoe (sp?) plant. He has had these seeds for many many years, harvesting them and then starting the new ones each spring. Samantha was very happy to have her own plant to take home. Her mom grows some things too, but we tend to grow different things, except this year Samantha wanted her to plant all the same herbs that I have planted.

Have a great day!!
