Flower Note Cards

I'm doing more flower photos for Vee's Note Card Party.  I'm so longing for the bright colors of summer.

This photo was taken at my friend's garden.


This one is my pink peony bush and my salvia plant in an old chippy chair. 


Rusty old bike and my shrub roses


My Jackmanii Clematis 

 To see more pretty Note Cards stop over at Vee's Note Card Party

I know many of you are having warm spring weather. But here in Minnesota it's still cold and snowy and I am in need of color.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a good rest of the week.
Until Next Time

Oh, I love this idea. All four of your photos make lovely notecards. My faves are the friends garden and the rusty bike.

We Northerner really are quite starved for color and warmth, aren't we?! Love the rusty bike in the rosebed and your beautiful vivid peonies. Do they smell as good as they look?

Nice collection here but I like the bike shot best. Just think something in with the flowers makes the shot more interesting. I wish I had kept my old bike that looked a lot like that one minus the basket on the front.
