Random. With Flowers.

Eek. I'm super busy. But I'm a major procrastinator too. So I thought I'd post a few more random bits along with photos of flowers. I'm using them for a layout, so heck I thought I'd share them here too.

Random bit #1. My friend Teri Anderson is doing a giveaway at the Paper Crafts blog. Two words: Divine Twine. (Did I hear a woohoo?)You have til the end of tonight to enter to win. I wish I could enter. Grrr.

Random bit #2. Speaking of giveaways, Creating Keepsakes is giving away some good stuff too. Cuttlebug, anyone? Again, I wish I could enter. Bah.

Random bit #3. I found this Angry Birds softies tutorial. How freakin' cute are they? I want one of each. My kids have assigned each of us a character from the game. And apparently I'm the bomb bird (black quail). I'm told that it's because I'm volatile and prone to explosions. Nice. Thanks kids. I'll be remembering you in my will. NOT! (At least I'm one of the good guys. My husband got assigned the pig with the mustache!)

OK. Ran out of randomness for today. I know. Lame. Let's move onto flowers photos, shall we? The hydrangea, the tulips, and the lily of valley are from my yard. But I think ranunculus are definitely going to be in my garden in the near future. (Plural of ranunculus? Ranunculuses? Ranunculi?)

Random out. (Til next week, anyway.)

Lovely flowers...I'm pretty sure if a flower of any type appeared anywhere near me in the next few months I'd fall over in shock.

Laughing quite loudly about Bryan being classified as the mustache pig. Yes, I finally figured out what Angry Birds is. ;)

I don't know anything about Angry Birds (no iPhone, oh poor, poor me!) but any barnyard creature with a moustache can't be good :P

I am so jealous those are out of your yard. My zinnias are starting to grow, but it will be awhile before I have blooms! Beautiful!

These are not from my yard this year. ;) But really, peoples, these flowers are foolproof. Really! Dig hole, pop them in there, water occasionally.

I kill hostas, Cindy!

I've been dying to photograph ranunculus, but I can't find them here... I guess I'll try growing my own this summer. You've got me itching to photograph flowers now, these are gorgeous!

Wow, I was drooling over the awesome photos and then realized they are from your garden? Now I'm doubly impressed (and just a little jealous, I've never met a plant I can't kill)
