Nice Poppy Brooch

It’s an expensive brooch but doesn’t look it from this photo. But, the design is nice. I like the detail and it does look like the poppies we grow here in the garden. There are some wonderful colours in the garden poppies, in shades of pink, orange and red. Traditionally, it’s the red poppies for Remembrance Day, November 11th. Did you get a poppy for your lapel yet?

Painted Rock Cactus

I think this is a great idea. If you have the skill or pattern/ design to make it as detailed as this one is. Great idea for a rock garden, literally.

Katie Loves …a plant for those who lack any sort of green thumb. Paint smooth stones to look like cacti and nestle into a planter just the same. No watering or sunlight required.  Photo: El Nido de Mama Gallina
