How Does Your Garden Grow?

"How Does Your Garden Grow" by Papillon Creations Newsletter Freebie 
I copied the thread choice from a blog by Joei B. from Singapore with her permission. 
It is on a 28 count linen (add which one later)  
DMC Threads: 52, 103, 469, 470 
DMC Color Variations 4180 and 4210
Beads Treasures Crystal Lilac Luster 15/0 glass seed beads
I don't have all the details as the sheets are in storage.
Below are some close up pictures.  I can't figure out how to turn then right side up.  They are correct on my file but not here.  Any tips greatly appreciated.

I discovered a GREAT cross stitch store in DeRidder, LA named Country Lane Cross Stitch & Frame Shop and a very nice lady there named Vicki.  I am taking this piece to her to frame as soon as I am employed and can afford to.  At first, I was not using a mat, but have decided to go with a Merlot mat and a silver frame.  This shop is more then half the price less than other shops that are closer to me.  She also pins the pieces and does not chemicals which I really like!
