Brick Garden Plant Labels...

I saw this idea on pinterest, 
and I thought it was a goodie!
Brick garden plant labels...
How simple!
How sturdy...
won't break in hurry!
Won't blow away in the wind!
So I set about makng a few.
First stop - the builders supply store to purchase some bricks...
 All you do is write your plant names on the bricks using a pencil...
The pencil just rubs off if you make a mistake.
Then simply outline over it with a marker pen.
 Calligraphy is not one of my finer skills... 
but even with my atrocious attempt at lettering,
 the outcome was pretty darn cool!
 My font was a little bit gothic....
 But the beetroot didn't mind!
 Basil is my favourite one, as it turned out the best!
 I think I'll definitely be making some more of these...
