Spring Gardening Take Note

What is green and when you add colour it changes?
It must be Spring!
This week I'm sharing in a Note Card for Vee with my 
May Spring garden 
display and excitement, 
come stroll with me
in my garden of love. 


Trillium - I have both purple and white in bloom


All my Hyacinths are heavy headed and falling over

Beautiful photos and plants Cindy. I love the upside down tulips as they are so unique. Glad you joined the party.

Such lovely spring flowers...they are truly beguiling after the winter and spring we had. I have never seen that variety of tulip before. They are wonderful. Hope that spring has really and truly arrived on PEI!

Lovely selection of notecards Cindy. I don't know if you know or not, but the upside down tulips are actually called Snakes Head Fritillaries and are a member of the lily family I believe. Just thought that you might be interested. xx

Isn't it fun to see the blooms?! I love seeing what is blooming. Lovely spring flowers/bulbs. Wonderful collection for cards.

Those are beautiful cards. I have never seen a purple trillium. We have white and pink here (in abundance), but that purple is so pretty!

Lovely spring blooms for such beautiful cards. Amy is right, your upside down tulips are properly called Frittilaria meleagris, but "drooping tulip" IS a common name for it, too! Regardless they are beautiful!

I've never seen those tulips before!

Lovely cards, lovely flowers.

They really are lovely! I see you like sea glass. I'll be blogging about some we found later this week. It's a rare find and a fun one here in Florida! Enjoy your day!

A nice collection of cards Cindy, I always use floral ones for thank you notes.

All the flowers are lovely but the trilliums are my favorites. The deep purple is stunning. I am enjoying all the 'notecards' I am seeing all over blogland.
