~Garden Plates and Simple & Sweet Fridays #75~

I've been wanting to add some china plates to the garden.

 I ran across some chipped and miss-matched plates my mother had left me. 
I knew she would love this idea using them in the garden as markers.
I used a Deco Color marker. 
Hopefully it was last, at least through the summer.
Then I recycled some old wood stakes from a barrel.
Stan helped me drill holes in the plates.
Did I ever tell you I have the best husband.

Of course, we needed a thyme marker.
I wanted to treat Stan with dessert for helping me make the garden plates. 
I love any recipe using filo dough. I made him a
 Cherry and Almond Strudel.
Had to share my new lavender with you.
So pretty!

Happy Thursday everyone!
