A Springtime crop of lovelies!

It is Spring here, buds are popping audibly and the usual Spring lassitude is upon me, possibly why I have not been at my computer in a long while but I must acknowledge the cards that I have received, again belatedly.
Amy from Minnesota has sent me a lovely chick to wish me well, thank you Amy, I am back to my old self again.
Alison from DC (she who makes cocktails) has sent me her recipe , suitably illustrated, for coq au vin rather than "coq-tails", I shall try it soon Alison. Thanks.
Carol (without an e) from California where they are sweltering under a late heat wave sends cherries and a pithy observation, didn't everyone's mother wear lipstick, even in the house? Done with real cherry juice the colour is interesting, now I just wish she had told me how to get the cherry stains out of my clothes! Thanks Carol.
It has taken almost a month for Kasia' card from Poland to arrive, what's up with the Polish mail system?
Her lovely Phlox whose sweet smell reminds her of her Grandma have brightened my day, better late than never eh Kasia?, thank you.

Polished Polish!

Kazia from Poland who is enjoying her holidays at her summer cottage has sent two cards. One of the cards, radishes reminds me that like her friend I love radishes too although it is not the season for them here, as I have remarked before, it is always summer in the supermarket!
This sweet card expresses a sentiment we all share that creation (however it happened) is a wonderful thing.
Thanks Kasia.

Thank you Fumiko.

Very late in posting but nevertheless just as welcome, one of Fumiko's wonderful cut paper cards. I marvel at the inventiveness she shows with simple paper and a knife!
Thank you Fumiko for the beautiful hydrangeas.

No need to apologise!

Masami apologises for being late in sending these three delightful cards. Some things are worth waiting for!
A catband Harmonica player!

Some yummy tuna sushi...Oishiii!, and a coffee filter flower painting.
Thank you Masami san.

Flowers for memories.

A lovely wild poppy card from Valerie. These poppies hold a special place in the hearts of Australians. We wear them in remembrance of the soldiers killed in all of the wars. The custom dates from the armistice of World War 1 because many of our soldiers perished in Flanders where these poppies grow wild in the field.
A beautiful card and very special.
Thanak you Valerie.
