Bead & Jewelry Linky Love
This is our first year planting corn, so we weren't sure what to expect - especially since we didn't attempt to hand-pollinate the stalks when the tassels opened. However, I went out the garden this evening to take a peek and counted at least eight small ears growing in our garden. Woo-hoo! Here's the clearest shot I was able to take of one of the bigger ones. Isn't it beautiful? Isn't it?
Here are your intriguing bead and jewelry links for the weekend. Have a good one!
