I would not give you false hope


Yup, it is still cold here, 59 degrees right now.  Lucky people, all the rest of you, with summer on your back porch !!  Not us, still bundled all up, and probably will be for another month.

Spencer was here today, and was he surprised when he looked at the peas he planted a couple of weeks ago !!  Of course, after he planted them he had to keep an eye on them every hour to see if they had come up yet.  Four year old boys are very loud, very rambunctious, a wee bit impatient, and hungry all the time.  Whew.

Today's card goes out to three different challenges ...

The Corrosive Challenge -  shabby chic

Joanna Sheen Challenge - remember when
(precious memories tag)

  3. I'm in Montana, no summer here! We didn't get UP to 59 today. We've had 3 nights of hard frost and there is new snow down to the prairie, the hills are beautiful, if you like snow! Summer will come soon, right? Good luck!
