July Note Card Party

What a perfect time for a party - and a note card party at that.  Summer is so full of flowers here in Washington - and everywhere - so I decided to pick some of my favorite flowers photos to make into cards - it is a hard choice - to pick favorites.  My oldest daughter and I decided that our favorite flower is the one we are currently looking at.

Wild Sweet Peas - they grown in waves all along the roads here

Fireweed - the background came out black straight from the camera - I love the effect

Hollyhocks - they make me smile

Shasta Daisies


Thanks Vee

They are all just wonderful and would make gorgeous cards. I love the passages you put with it one. The second one down is my favorite.

Vee said...

These are all so beautiful. Because I love hollyhocks and Edna St Vincent Millay, that's my favorite...until I look at the daisies!

Very pretty photos for note cards! Love the quotes you've chosen to go with them.

I love hollyhocks and planted some this year. They're growing, but slowly. I hope I'll see blooms yet this season!

Great idea, pretty flowers.

Our roadside flower that is common at the moment JoAnn is the blue geranium - it is everywhere. I find that in the spring all the predominant flowers are yellow but now they all seem to be in blues and purples.
I love the hollyhocks - they don't do well here in my garden because we have such strong winds.

Beautiful and beautiful! Love those daisies -- and the idea of the world laughing in flowers. I've heard that before, but it's a great quote!

Donna said...

Pretty, pretty flowers. I love the deep pink of the wild sweet peas.

Julie Fukuda said...

I love your pretty cards and I am smiling.

Jan said...

I would SO buy your Note Cards! And the black background behind the Fireweed is perfect!

Lovely!

Mary said...

They're all so beautiful. I love the sweet peas. :) They're abundant on the roadsides down here too! Great postcards and photos to make them!

Kay said...

Oooh, such pretty flowers! (I wish the wild sweet peas smelled as heavenly as the garden variety!) We have wild Shasta daisies growing everywhere here - fields of them! Are they as abundant in your neck of the woods?

Oh, these are lovely and are perfect for note cards!

Sweet peas were one of my mom's favorites. She had them climbing a trellis outside our kitchen window when I was growing up. The hollyhocks were another favorite - she would make "dolls" out of them for me. :-)

Thanks for your visit and comment on my sign/rural entry.
