Spring Buds: Vee's Note Card Party


Each month Vee, of A Haven for Vee, hosts a Note Card Party. Attendees choose four photos previously published on their blog that they think would make good note cards. This month, I've looked back over my posts to find one photo from last March, immediately below, whereas the others are from April 2011.


No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"
Robin Williams 


Every spring is the only spring - a perpetual astonishment
Ellis Peters 


"Dear old world," she murmured, "you are very lovely, and I am glad to be
alive in you." 
Anne of Green Gables: L.M. Montgomery

It seems that in much of North America, and Europe, too, winter just does not want to let go. But it will, and spring will come in all her loveliness. 

For more photos that would make lovely note cards, click on over to Vee's Party - a convivial gathering if ever there was one.

Oh yes! Now we're talking. I'm finding spring all over. Wonderful quotes to use as well. They would make a sweet addition to each card. Thanks, too, for inviting your readers to join us!

Lorrie, I always love to read your thoughtful quotes and this Anne of Green Gables is such a treasure!
I know it's all about the note cards but being an avid reader I do so love quotes!!
Oh Spring has most certainly arrived in your carefully chosen set of note cards - how lovely to be the receiver of any one of these pretty cards!
It can't be far away now.....

Spring blossoms at their best - just opening, with those sweet young leaves unfurling in the background. These pics would be lovely as a set of cards - I'd buy boxes!!!!
