Disintegration Packet Revealed At Last...Sunday's Garden Visitors...Remembering Mom 1912-1994

I was going to wait for more weather, but after seeing everyone elses' opened disintegration packets I wanted to see mine. See the ant on the upper left hand corner? Do ants eat much? Let's see: The only sign of disintegration here is a faded and rather worn bit of green tissue paper on the outer layer. We did get a rainy weekend. Perhaps that helped. After cutting it down and taking it apart I put it in this envelope for safe keeping until step three is completed by August 1. I was excited to find one piece of brown paper dyed by the green tissue paper...but another piece of the same paper is good as must have been buried deeper in the middle. I guess the green tissue paper is my "best" bit of disintegration! Happy to have it at least. What will all this become? Stay tuned. To see more revealed disintegration bundles go to Seths' The Altered Page blog (see my side bar) On Sunday I got a sunny reprieve from the rain we'd just had, and while sitting on the back patio snapped this pretty visitor... And got to admire some of my yard that had no difficulty surviving our rather mild winter... And wishing you all a happy Bloomin' Tuesday! This last is one of my photo cards...a spiraling rose...and I post it here today in honor of my mother, who loved roses. She had quite the rose garden at our house growing up...Patty and I played around it, as did my children when they were young. Mom's life was full and busy...I recently found some old art pads of hers and realized or remembered that she had taken some art classes in her latter years dabbling in drawing with pencil and charcoal. A rose for you are not forgotten.
