Garden delights at Simply Magnolia


It's been a hot week here in Slovenia with temperatures around 34 °C. I take my daughter for a walk every morning around 7, because later on it was simply too hot. Thank god for air condition!! The only one that love this heat is our oldest cat, she just loves lying in the balcony and enjoying herself. :)

As you probably know this week's theme at Simply Magnolia is Garden Delights. Your card must have flowers and butterflies on it. You have till next Saturday to enter the challenge.
