Wisteria get well


I am on a purple roll! The wisteria is blooming right now in Atlanta, so I made this card using Spellbinders Wisteria Edgeability die. I realized after painting the wisteria that there is much more blue in the blooms...oh well. I always think of them as being lavender. I went to my friend, Yunetta's house to photograph these as she has a vine that has been kept cut back like a shrub. So often you see them up in pine trees and they are out of reach. I just love spring in Atlanta. I was trying to start my lawn mower yesterday for the first time this year. The lawn boy is 22 years old and needs to be replaced! My neighbor who does landscaping and yard work came over and we decided to overhaul my front yard flower beds. I had had a bradford pear tree that split during a hurricane and it is constantly putting up suckers. The boxwoods were here when we moved here 22 years ago...my neighbor pulled them out with his truck! I am putting in climbing roses and knock out roses...I can barely moved today I am so sore! Maybe tomorrow will find me feeling better!
