Crafters of Faith Blog April 2013 Blog Hop!

Hello, friends! Welcome to the Crafters of Faith Blog Hop! Our hostess for the month of April is...April! How appropriate is that?

April chose the theme of flowers. Because, as we know, April showers bring May flowers! Yep, that's one April heard her whole life. Kinda like "Mary Mary, quite contrary, who does your garden grow?" Yep, I heard that one my whole life, too, April, so I can relate! :)

When the sun begins to warm our days and the birds sing from sunrise to sundown, I get the itch to get in the garden. Unfortunately, I'll be moving in thirty days and will have to say goodbye to my English roses, my hydrangeas, and my herbs and perennials.

Time to start thinking about future gardens for my future home!

I just love sweet peas. I've grown them in the past, and their curling tendrils help them climb to the sun. Such a sweet smell, too!
