It was back to the hoop house this week. An on going project that may never get finished. Is a garden ever finished? I don’t think so. Even seasoned gardeners are alway changing things around and trying new plants. This hoop house aka green house has been in disarray for a while and now that things have changed around here I am determined to get it back into production. So…now that the freeze damaged leaves on the lemon have been removed I can see what is what. Maybe it will resprout … maybe not. The mint that had really taken over every inch of this space is slowly going away. It will take a lot digging. Mint doesn’t just die out ..It has a life of it’s own and we ,the mint and I ,will be struggling for a while.The picture shows the first attempt at removal and laying down flat boxes to help drowned it out. The second is the pile of stems from the mint. It was growing up the inside of the house.
Oh…had to take a break and do some paper gardening. These two are more of Susans artistic dies that make beautiful flowers …almost real like. I am really enjoying learning how to grow Susan’s garden.
Thank you for sharing a few minutes of your day. Do come back and I’ll even come back more often as the garden takes shape…both inside and outside.
Goodness…This cold is hanging on. So back to the craft room and more of Susan’s Garden. ( Just a note…Susan Tierney Cockburn is live on Facebook every Wed. morning showing her designs)
Next up are two cards made while in the learning process.
The blue is Love In A Mist…a pretty little flower I was not familiar with. Still need to google it and find out more. The yellow is good old Pansy. My mother has a container of yellow pansy on her front porch. They may be frozen today.

Later I’m going to tackle Lilac 2 and Primrose 1. This is fun and very relaxing …You might want to try yourself.
Thanks for visiting..do come again and do please let me know you were here by leaving a short comment.
Let’s keep in mind that …..This is the Lords day and rejoice in it.
It is so cold outside. Nine ((9)degrees this morning and while this isn’t as cold as up North it is plenty cold for the South. Here in Mississippi we just can’t function in cold and snow that turns to slick ice. I am fortunate enough not to have to travel any further than the mail box at the end of the drive or down the hill ( which I haven’t attempted yet) to check on the other generation ( my parents).
So while it is attempting to warm up a bit my gardening is indoors with paper crafting. My order fron Elizabeth Craft came in and oh goodness it was full of such fun stuff. This just doesn’t get any better. Well ….my attempt will get better but I mean the designs from Susans’s Garden. She is so precise in her rendition of all these flowers. Susan has a real love for getting it right. It has been fun.
First off…A good friend has a birthday coming up so this was made in her honor.
