November Garden and Hand Made Cards

So far there is still color in my garden.

 The zinnias are blooming still and as you can see the powdery mildew is covering the leaves.

 They are being visited daily by bees and butterflies.  I have more photos with butterflies but I will have to post them later.  I had some computer issues for a while.

 The two basil bushes are big and full of white flowers.  The bees are also enjoying them too.

 I love this little mini rose.  It always has a better performance in the Fall.

 I have been busy finishing up my quilt and I am happy to say that I am done with the top of my quilt.  Hope to get that photo up soon.

Also, I have been working with one of my paper pads by DCWV called "The Mariposa" stack.  Here are a few cards that I made.
 I've used various stamps sets and embellishments from my stash.

 simple bookmarks
 The floral stamping (left of the card) and sentiment were done by using white embossing powder.
 blank not cards
The weather here has been very nice with a little rain even.  I am planning a few changes in the garden. I will drafting up a plan  on paper and hope by next Spring it will be done.

Thank you for your visit and like to wish you a lovely day.

Hello Bobbie Lynn,

Your zinnias are blooming wonderful. I wouldn't worry too much about the mildew, having the bees and butterflies far out ways that. I was just reading how to attract more butterflies to the garden. I can just about taste the basil,enjoy.

Happy gardening.
