Mother Nature In Her Glory

Hi, guys!  Hope all is well!  I am excited today, as I finally picked this!



I have been waiting for a tomato to turn red, and I am looking forward to eating this.  I have about 30 green ones sitting there teasing me, so hopefully they will all do their magic soon!  I thought I would share another picture with you.  I am amazed at Mother Nature sometimes.  One of her critters must have dropped some seeds in the middle of my side yard, and look what grew!


There are 3 purple cone flowers as tall as me now.  (Please excuse the picture of me, as my hubby thought it was a fun picture, and I am in my yard clothes!)  But it is fun to see how tall they are growing.  I'm staking them today as they aren't able to stand up by themselves anymore.

Now, for a card.   I was asked to make a sympathy card for a friend.  She needed one made for a man who lost his wife.  Having been in that position, I took time to think about how I wanted to make it.  I decided to go simple and easy.   I remember being overwhelmed with the long dramatic poems after awhile when I was barely functioning.   I kept the sentiment inside very simple.  My friend liked it when I gave it to her.  I hope it brings some comfort.


Supplies:
Paper: The Ink Pad NYC, Imaginations-Gingham
Ink: Stampin' Up
Stamp: Greenbrier International
Misc.: True Hemp Hemptique, Oval Punches

I hope you have a great day!

Hi Winnie, What a beautifull garden! And I agree, Mother Nature can be very amazing! Well, she is always amazing but we only notice it every now and then. ;-) Beautifull sympathy card, sometimes the simplest things are just perfect. Greetz Dee

I love coneflowers. Birds are funny. I discovered a raspberry bush in the middle of my garden and a friend said that was a bird putting it there.

Lovely sympathy card.

Hey Winnie,
Very nice post. I just took in my first tomato a few weeks ago - been really difficult keeping them watered this year.

Perfect intuition on the card - simple and kind and coming alongside.

Regards,
B.R.

Great flower!

And such a sad occasion for a card : ( Those must be hard to do.
