Table for One-Planting Season!

Hi everyone! I'm taking a break from digging and weeding to join a few parties this week. I hope you'll stop over to see other fun ideas!
This week I thought I'd keep it real and show you exactly what I've had an appetite for - getting the garden planted! Love flowers, but live for the veggies! Guess it's that whole "fruits of your labor" thing...
I picked up the rose tablecloth at a flea market for $2 and the lunch plates, with cups, at the Salvation Army for 99 cents. We had the gentlest spring rain last night, so perfect for new plants and seeds. Notice the circles on the plates, they look like rain drops hitting puddles...
Here's hoping all your weeds are wild flowers!
I'm joining the following:

  5. Love your wonderful luncheon plates. What a great find and the table cloth is just lovely. I love a veggie garden too, ours is almost gone for the year, but come fall we will start again. The desert is just too hot to have a garden. Love the flowers too. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty
