Fruit Tree

Will this be the tree that produces fruit for us?  It's been 20 years and my husband who normally has a green thumb just can't grow fruit.

It isn't all his fault.  It's really too cold here for peaches.  Every other year they get frost bit.  If they survive the cold, they have to fend off the Japenese beetles and the squirrels.

Still he is trying and this was his latest effort - another plum tree for cross pollination.  I captured it as a page because it was the first gardening thing he was allowed to do following a long winter and spring of medical challenges.  He is doing much better now.

For the page, I used a large tree stamp and some mists.  The papers are an older collection from Fancy Pants.

Check out the video at YouTube:

Here's the sketch:


  1. Your layout is lovely.
    So glad your husband is on the mend and well enough to go out and so some gardening :)

  2. Great LO Lisa. I really like the tree and the colours you used!
