You Know Summer is Over When ...

There are so many signs that summer is coming to an end. It's getting colder in the evenings, the birds totally change their habits etc. But the one thing thats always been my 'key' to admitting it is - Sedum. Sedum is a plant I've had in my gardens for about 25 years. A friends sister gave me a cutting that many years ago. It's easily divided and over the years it ended up in many gardens. When I moved to Peterborough 2 years ago I brought a cutting with me and now already have 2 large plants here. They are one of the last plants to bloom. When the Sedum blooms ... I know summer is almost over.



I've always liked this rubbery plant. It has strong stems and always keeps a nice shape. They will actually survive through winter in pots - I know because thats where I had some for years. I believe the one I have is called "Autumn Joy". Now there are probably many varieties of sedum (also know as stonecrop) but this is alot taller then the common stonecrop that alot of people get for a spreading ground cover. So if you are one of those people that says you can't grow anything, try Sedum ... its virtually carefree~!

I've decided to have a September Special at LLL Creations Dollar Mart ~!



Journaling in a layout really personalizes it. Check out a larger view of these Journaling Clip Boards here.

And ... I also put these Diamond Romance Papers into
LLL Creations Dollar Mart today.



With all that 'glitter' on the paper there is really no need for any other embellishments~!



You get 6 different papers for only $1.00~! You can get the papers here or just go through LLL Creations Dollar Mart under the Papers category.

So take advantage of the September Special and see everything I have to offer over at LLL Creations Dollar Mart~!

And ... because I am still waiting for my great niece or nephew to be born I'm still making baby stuff ... so this is your freebie for today;





Ahhh ... this is my daughter at 3 1/2 months old~! She is also in the Diamond Romance Paper layout above. (over 26 years later!) LOL
