This weekend I brought out the painting supplies and decided to make hand-painted plant markers for our garden. I am really pleased with these. They are not only satisfying to create but it adds a personal touch to our families garden that also show cases our love for painting rocks together!
I am planning to make more to mark the rest of our growing herbs, flowers and vegetables soon!
