Picture Perfect Gifts From Your Garden

By Phran Novelli

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Got ink in your printer? Then you can make quick gifts from your garden photos of your riotous roses, gorgeous geraniums or serene succulents.

GIFT IDEA 1: Print a series of nice notecards on heavy paper, cut, fold, and package with matching sized envelopes.

GIFT IDEA 2: Enlarge a photo to frame – a blow up of beautiful cherry blossoms or a bee foraging on flowers. Our surprise October snowstorm gave you a chance to snap some once-in-a-lifetime shots: from maple trees in full fall foliage peeking through a blanket of snow, to roses with their heads heavily bowed from the weight of the white stuff.

GIFT IDEA 3: Create a complete calendar to show what you grow throughout the seasons – and add planting tips for each time of the year.

See? With a just few good photos from your garden, you still have time to make some great gifts.
