DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge #46 1-2-3 Recipe


I love this butterfly and I think she has a beautiful garden to play in! Summer is such a wonderful thing and my favourite season, the problem is it goes by so fast. I also like late spring and early autumn but am not a fan of winter. The older I get the less I like it. My Mom was like that too, so I guess I get that from her:) BUT summer, oh it is such a joy, I will even take mosquitoes and rain and garden slugs over snow.  Good thing as that is all we seem to be getting this summer year. lol
