Thanks so much for the kind words. The sign is made of old roofing slate (found in an empty yard) and it says, "Everything changed the day she discovered there was exactly enough time for the important things in life."

Ali, I agree with Jan and Cindy-just beautiful work.  You are an artist girl.

Ali, what is the sign you have with the writing made of? I like using chairs in the garden, its so fun.  Also, your Butterfly looks like it took allot of work and time?

Any kind of vine, climbers, flowering or variegated or fruit.  Veggie vines can probably be classified in another group but if not they are okay, too!
