It's been a very busy,
but enjoyable month.
First, I want to give you a brief
tour of the gardens.
This is our first year to grow cabbage.
It's looking good, even the bees like it :)

I buy my fabric online and I always
buy last year's designs.
You can find them for half price or less.
I have one more item to show you
before I say good-bye.
Yesterday I had to run to Home Depot
and on my way I saw a Yard Sale sign.
