For Graduations...and Green and Gardens!

I have a couple LO's with shots of my garden to share - and also a couple pages of my son's graduation along with a *freebie*

I used lots of green in all of these. It's so nice to see everything in our yard turning green and growing. Hree's a shot of a planter filled with scented herbs. All I need to do is walk by, brush my fingers over the plants and breathe in for a delicious medley of pineapple, lemon and lavender...Mmmmm!

Here's another shot of the herb garden. I have pink foxgloves planted around the trellis, and once they grow in and have flowers, this will be SO pretty! You can see the corner of our hot tub behind - so when we are sitting in the tub we are looking out into this lovely garden.

My youngest son, Brian graduated from High School last Sunday. I am SO proud of him. I wasn't so sure he'd make it this year...he barely passed English - but he did do it, and got his diploma! GO BRIAN!

Here is a shot of both boys - Henry's HS Graduation was 4 years ago. He has 1 more semester to go for college in the fall before he earns his Batchelors degree in Biology from UMASS. GO HENRY!

I am SO proud of both these guys! To share my excitement, I made a freebie for all the grads and parents out there...

Here's a preview - it's a 2008 graduation tassel. There are 2 png files, with & without shadow, a frame with the tassel (all in green only) and a layered psd file if you'd like to play around and change up the color.

Enjoy - and Congratulations! to all the graduates and parents of graduates!
