I was a little late planting my tomatoes this year but I am delighted my first fruit have ripened. I grow them outside on my sunny patio and it is such a joy to see this
and yes they are as sweet as they look.
I grow the variety Gardeners' Delight and eat them straight off the vine like apples...such a tasty snack, no pesticides and no air miles at all.
It has been such a dull day today that I thought I would share some other nice bright garden photos.
My sunflower has 5 large heads
and the begonia in my pots and baskets still look beautiful.
Fuchsia are so pretty closed
My card today is the latest for Dotty's Teahouse. I thought I would make something with some blue sky and sunshine, as we are so lacking it today!
I never get bored using the flower from Creative Chaos by Visible Image. It is my favourite floral stamp.
The background is alcohol inks on glossy card and I have added Crackle Accents to the flower for some extra dimension.
The tiny butterflies are alcohol inks on acetate.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
Creative Artiste 3/3 anything goes
Cute card Thursday 1/3 add a quote
Through the craft room door 1/2 anything goes
A bit more time to craft 1/3 anything goes
Craft stamper take it make it 3/3 anything goes
I am really hoping the sunshine return soon but in the meantime I shall admire the beauty of my flowers and enjoy eating the fruits of my labours.
Have a lovely weekend whatever you are up to and if you are in the UK, remember that brolly.
Back on Monday when it will be Christmas Eve here at Jane's Journal...ho ho ho!
Bye for now,
