How Does Your Garden Grow

Ok I know I'm late with this entry. The deadline was yesterday at Inspiration Avenue. The challenge was "How does your Garden Grow". It was a great inspiration for my art journal.
I love gardening and spending time outdoors. I've been doing a lot of this lately. I have not finished my chairs yet. I"m taking a little break from them because I got diverted to putting up lights on the porch. It took us {hubby and me} all weekend to do this little project. Yikes! I did not know it was going to be so much work. We had to buy a 10 foot ladder and it was not tall enough, but we made do. I love how they turned out. I originally wanted to line the rafters in the ceiling of the roof but it was way too high to get up to the tip top. I compromised.
So my porch is coming along nicely. My yard/garden is too.Me and my big ideas always turn out to be so much work. But it's worth it.
Have a great week and hope you are enjoying the summer. It's summer here already. We hit heat index of 100 over the weekend. Gotta love the heat to live in Texas. 


  1. I'm sure your big idea is turning out lovely...wanna see some pics.


  2. I LOVE this entry- and am so jealous of your journaling, I really WANT to make one, but somehow there's never any time....
    Oh, and I want to see some pics of your newest idea too AND your garden- I bet both are gorgeous!
