plant whisperer

challenge 74 is up at journaling junkie - create a layout that celebrates one of your talents, journaling about it and how it affects the people in your life.

do join in for the february challenges (challenges #73 and #74) to get a chance to win a spot for the "get it scrapped" online class by debbie hodge.

i created a layout about my mom and her talent for gardening.  her plants are always a showcase piece in our house and she loves spending time with them.

Have you ever imagined growing up in a home without plants surrounding you?  I can’t!  Ever since I can remember there were always flowers, plants & shrubs surrounding our home.  And I have my Mama to thank for it!

The smell of freshly nipped leaves, the feel of damp soil watered down early in the morning, the seemingly whispering leaves and flowers around our home.  All made possible by her love of gardening.  Her nurturing hands help bring life and beauty to these natural creations.

We never did inherit from her this natural talent.  But we are her big admirers.  Our home is much cosier and happier with her plants around us.  It is just one of her talents that makes us love her even more.
