Fred, She Said Crocuses

     Well guys, this card is about as simple as it can get.  To be honest, I still feel so rotten I just couldn't come up with anything more elaborate.  So ignore the card and focus on the pretty image.  It's one of a set of four spring flowers you can find at the Fred, She Said store.  We'll be having a blog hop on Friday and I'll have another card up using the daffodil image.
      I'm posting a few pics of the flowers around my yard to make up for the plain card so enjoy the natural beauty of God's creation.

     Yes this is wisteria--in TREE form  LOL.  I'm a really bad judge of distance but I'd say this bush is at least twelve to fifteen feet high.  And that oak tree to the right--it's over 100 years old!

     Looks like the azaleas will make it this year without getting zapped by a last minute frost, but they'll be long gone by Easter.
     I'm so sorry I've been so neglectful and behind on getting around to my bloggie friends this past week.  Everybody says this nasty mess just takes a hold and doesn't want to let go and I believe it.  Whether I've commented on your blog or not rest assured that I HAVE looked at every single post.
     I should have one more post today.  Thank goodness I already had the card designed before I got sick.  I'll be back with it later.

I am soooo sorry you are icky - I hate when that happens. But I love the photos you shared, wow. The wisteria "tree" is amazing, just the color of purple I adore. Hope you feel better soon - it isn't as much fun without you around !
