While your spring blooming plants are just getting started, add some color to your garden with garden flags!
Yesterday I was barefoot in the yard taking care of some trimming and visually planning, and today it’s well below freezing with six inches of fresh snow on the ground. My solar lights look like garden gnomes with their snow hats!
But spring is just over a week away. Plus, I left my sample garden flags out in my sunny front yard all winter this year just to see how they’d do year round in this chaotic weather we’ve been experiencing. Some have been out since July 2020, the rest since June 2021, but all are out there flapping in the gale this morning and shaking off the ice that built up overnight. The oldest show some signs of fading, and only two of the oldest show any sign of fraying.
So don’t worry about putting them out too early, or leaving them out all year. I knew they were good for a year or two in full sun during temperate months, and it’s only been the test of time to find they are durable enough that I can pretty much guarantee them for two years in all weather.
Special: Two Garden Flags for $25.00
Maybe you want a gift or it’s hard to choose just one.
Garden flags are $15.00 each in person, $20.00 on my website to cover shipping.
But buy two garden flags for $25.00 using the discount code 25FORTWOGARDENFLAGS.
On my website, that’s a $5.00 discount plus free shipping, and in person you get $5.00 off and there is no shipping at all. All taxes, shipping and handling are included in that price.
Buy one for yourself and one for a friend!
This special discount applies to all designs of garden flags, nature and cats.
The discount is good through March 31, 2022.
Here are a few galleries of flag designs I designed and currently have on hand, but it’s by no means all of them!

Lots of cats!

Where to find all the products
The manufacturer of the fabric transfers I use to make these and many other products will give me a discount on purchases if I tag them and mention them on social media when I post a product where I’ve used their transfers. I am more than happy to do this for the quality of their transfers and the things I can make when I use them, and their customer service as well. Visit their website: https://nufunactivities.com/
