Summer is Coming

We have had some pretty whacky weather this year where I live but the calendar says that summer is coming so I am hanging my hat on that and have done my annual planting.  The temps have ranged from 24C to 15C over the past few days.  But since they say it is climbing again over the next few days, I don't think I made a mistake.  Besides this is a long weekend and the one where you traditionally plant in my neck of the woods.

The challenge over at Phindy's Place this week is called SUMMER IS COMING so we want to see your summery cards.  You don't have to use a Phindy image but you get two entries if you do.  Who wouldn't want to use a Phindy image when they are this adorable?
