Spring Flowers

This week our challenge at Phindy's Friday challenge blog is called SPRING HAS SPRUNG. We want to see cards with a Spring theme or even lots of Spring flowers.

We are having some glorious weather right now and it is unusually warm so many of the trees are already starting to bud and I have noticed some crocuses starting to pop out. It is really early so I sure hope there aren't any negative affects on the summer garden.

I don't have any spring bulbs in my garden but I know that if I did I would certainly plant Hyacinth bulbs because they have the most gorgeous aroma and come in the most gorgeous purples, pinks and white - like my Lilacs.   That is why I chose this image called Hyacinth and Ivy to work with this week.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
