Gardening with Farmer Hare
Hi everyone! I've been absent from the ol' blog lately, but I've been stamping, just needed to take a little time for other things. One thing I've been doing is tending my water-logged garden. We had four days of rain here and my newly planted snow peas took a bit of a beating. I've got to get out some stakes or wire for the plants before the rains come again Thursday and Friday. While it was raining last week, I made up this card. I love the carrot garland - it is fun to use it as a border or a frame.
I am a bit partial to farming images, too, since I have farming kin. My grandfather always had this wonderful garden that yielded an amazing bounty. My dad is a great gardener, too. I don't have much space, but I do love that I can plant things and watch the progress with my kids. Farmers (and their families) are special people and some of the hardest workers - I appreciate their hard work!
