Weekly Challenge - "How Does Your Garden Grow?

Are you ready for this week's challenge? Here you go:


Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.


Yes, this week's challenge is all about your interpretation of how your garden grows.

It might be a photograph.










Or a lovely painting.











It might be jewelry or poetry ... a knitted creations or a hand-sewn masterpiece. It could be pottery or metal work ... glass or brass. It's whatever you'd like it to be ... whatever your imagination conjures.

So tell us ... how does your garden grow?

My hubby is very artistic and uses a variety of subjects for his creations. But ... my favorites are always nature inspired (like the ones I posted within the challenge). So, I'm going to formally enter this piece (on his behalf):

It's the garden of his mind ... isn't it beautiful?

What a great theme this week and it seems to be where I'm spending so much of my time these days.. in the garden. I do hope it all grows though, lol!
I'll do my best to participate in this week's challenge, I've missed doing them.

Thanks to reduce Footprints for letting me know about this great contest. I've just made three vegetable pictures which it's hoped will help inspire children to eat more veg. Here they are.

Some fab stuff out there already. Good luck with this.
