The challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut is "Looks Like Spring" (Any springtime project).
Well, I love to garden and that's the first thing I think of when spring comes around. I can't wait to get outside, be in the sunshine and start my gardens. I like my floral gardens, they always bring me joy to look at the beautiful flowers, but I love the vegetable garden. It brings me back to when I was a kid with my Grandfather. He gardened every year...sting beans, tomatoes, onions, eggplant...just to name a few. Oh, happy memories! I miss him....
