Spring has sprung in West Virginia

Finally! Spring is showing herself and I couldn't be happier! She's really pretty after the dreariness of winter. I was in west Tennessee last week where spring is apparently 3 weeks ahead of us folks who live here in the mountain state, but that's okay! I get to see her twice! Our daffodils (my fav flower) are about 7 to 8 inches tall with buds on them. Our crabapple is budding and of course, the weeds are showing their little naughty heads!! Time to get out the lawnmowers!! Well, maybe you can hold off on that machine. After all, we've had white Easters before here in West Virginia!!

I do have some news to tell and it's good for me. I finally replaced my very old hearing aids today and let me tell you, SOUND IS GOOD!!! Even hearing the air conditioner in the car was a wonderful irritant!! (Is that an oxymoron??) Thank goodness for insurance companies because they did come through for me and now I have some very powerful hearing aids!! No more secrets, no more whispers, I can HEAR YOU!!! YAAYY!!

In other news, I still don't have a card to show you, but I did two yesterday - one as a thank you for a neighbor who watched our house and collected our mail and papers for us; the other was a project for a challenge on Cardmaker card swap. I've uploaded the card swap project to my photobucket account, but for some reason, I can't get it uploaded here. So, I'll do my best to figure out the problem. In the meantime, I'll work hard to get a card for you soon!

Enjoy spring! Summer will be here shortly!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I rescued my daffodils yesterday. I was afraid they would freeze overnight, so I cut them all (about 12) and put them in a vase in my office. A very happy spot. :)

  2. My winter/fall through Spring flowers are starting to bloom in my new flower garden. We all love flowers and can enjoy each others together! My flowers are specifically "winter" snow flowers that grew and are growing in these freezing temperatures. First time for me! Thanks for sharing! Congrats on the new sounds and I bet you can HEAR the GROWTH of BEAUTIFUL SPRING FLOWERS!!!

  3. We're already enjoying daffodil blossoms here in a lower-elevation part of WV. I'll have to come to "Mt" Philippi in a couple weeks to see them a little longer!!!

    Can't wait to see you cards.
