"I used to think that anyone doing anything weird was weird. I suddenly realized that anyone doing anything weird wasn't weird at all and it was the people saying they were weird that were weird." -- Paul McCartney

Does anyone else think so?  ROFL!  Fortunately, as I live in a cluster home development, I have a very small garden and I have NO lawn to mow!  My flower bed is raised to waist level so I never get a pain in my back like this:

The image is one I drew for Digistamps 4 Joy, and will be in the store soon.  I just love the poem I used as a sentiment, and used to have it on a plaque in the garden of a home I used to live in.  Unfortunately it was built into a wall, so I couldn't take it with me when I moved (*insert sad face here*)

I would like to add this to the following challenges:

  1. Just beautifully creative. Love this new image you have designed. Fortunately we also don't have any grass to cut either as there is a sleeper path running through our garden, but unfortunately here are always weeds.
