Weekly Challenge Results - "How Does Your Garden Grow"

Wow! So many people came out to play with us this week ... and shared amazing works of art. From poetry to jewelry to collages ... felting, photos, rocks and growth charts ... from bath products to blog backgrounds to paintings to mail boxes ... we saw a glimpse into the most magical of gardens.

Thank you to everyone who participated! Now, sit back and enjoy these delightful entries ... and if you have an extra minute or two, click on the links and visit these artists ... you'll be thrilled with the treasures you find!

From Arfully Ooglebloops:

My garden grows with bits of heart
Mixed in among the seeds.
From the sweat and time my husband’s spent
Eliminating weeds.

The miracle of seeds breaking thru’
A soil ceiling hard as glass,
Is a never ending, amazing thing
To watch as time does pass.


When the rose is gone and the garden faded
you will no longer hear the nightingale's song.
The Beloved is all; the lover just a veil.
The Beloved is living; the lover a dead thing.

If love withholds its strengthening care,
the lover is left like a bird without care,
the lover is left like a bird without wings.

How will I be awake and aware
if the light of the Beloved is absent?
Love wills that this Word be brought forth.

It started with a little bead, and it grew

I LOVE to see my Garden grow and visit my
friends to and fro

It will consist of friendships and challenges to make

One thing I know for sure, it's nothing that I do ~
My Beautiful,Whimsical Garden.....
It grows because of YOU!
