Here is southeastern Pennsylvania -- among many other portions of the country -- we have been blessed with unseasonably warm temperatures so far in 2012. Our winter was very mild, and as a result, our growing season has already begun. Magnolia trees are in bloom, azaleas are coming, daffodils are up, as are tulips and hyacinth. My lilac bush has budded, and trees are verdant!
First, let me share two beautiful Easter pictures I saw today on Facebook:
Can you imagine how long it took the Easter Bunny to Egg this tree??!
He is Risen. Isn't this an amazing homage?
Now, on to the "April Showers Bring May Flowers" Blog Hop ... I found this picture on Photobucket, and though I'd share it to get you in the mood for what's about to come in gardens everywhere ...
I have to laugh, because around these parts, "April Showers bring MUD!" first. Oh well, with "black thumbs" (I have "WANTED" posters with my picture up in many plant stores!), I'm better off creating my own flowers, like this one, below...
Here is the card I made for Day #2 of this hop:
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog posting today. I do have a wee bit of BLOG CANDY available, and it's just in time for spring:
|This sweet Sizzix die is one of my favorites.
I use it several times a year -- "Bee Mine" at
Valentine's Day, or a general "You're Bee-Ootiful" card.
I attach it to an Action Wobble for extra fun!
To be eligible to win it, there are two steps:
1. You must be a follower of the CardMonkey blog.
2. Leave a comment on this blog about the card shown above.
Now, zip on over to the next stop on the April Showers Bring May Flowers Blog Hop, which belongs to ZENITA ("Z").
