The title says it all. I now have an instagram account. I had to wait until there was an app for my nokia cell phone. Thanks instagram beta. The link is on my banner at the top of the blog.

Garden Flags Available with the Cranford Group

I am excited to finally share this with you! I try really hard not to share my licensed items until they are released. I didn't take the time to add the links for my Valentine's day flags, but here is a link to my St. Patrick's Day and Fourth of July flags. Also, check out the other wonderfully talented artist and pick up some cuteness to add to your spring and summer gardens. If you buy one, I would love to add your photo to this post to share with other fans.

This is Fancy, you have seen her in a previous post with the reindeer painting. She loves to sleep in this gardening bag. It has been re-purposed as a catch all for mail and the cat. She will run and hide if anyone knocks on the door. Treats, treats and more treats. There isn't any bad variety.

This is Taffy. He is very vocal and likes to greet people when they drop in. He gets nightly massages and he may or may not be interested in treats. It depends on what he is doing at the time.

Flowers in my garden

Flowers in my garden. It is hot outside in Oklahoma, but there is a cooling oasis of beauty blooming all around. My favorites are the cactus and four o clocks. I also kinda have a soft spot for random wildflowers that find there way into the garden, so I am letting them
