I should have stayed up last night and watched. I couldn't sleep. I love Biltmore Estates. I've been there twice. Hope you are having a great week. :)

Congrats on your shot of the full lunar eclipse!! Great shot!!
We're under clouds so we missed it!! Poured rain last night - got an inch and half!!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

Your spring note cards of Asheville and Hendersonville are lovely. What a great shot of the moon. We had rainy cloudy skies here in Hendersonville last night, so no moon shots :-(

NanaDiana said...

Wonderful pictures. That is a beautiful part of the country! We could not see the lunar eclipse at all here. We had heavy clouds and snow cover. xo Diana

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Very pretty, Diane! I stayed up to see the moon, but couldn't get a decent shot of it. It was beautiful!

It's good to be back from blog break and see my blog friends again. Can't believe it's already time for the party! Love your cards, the sky looks so blue!

Cranberry Morning said...

Nice note cards, Diane! Love the mosaic too. Have a lovely Tuesday!

Lorrie said...

You have some beautiful statuary images - they would make really lovely note cards.
It was cloudy here so that's my excuse for not seeing the lunar eclipse, although I likely would not have gotten up to see it anyway. Nice image your husband caught.

podso said...

Like your NC pics--a nice themed set of cards, and the moon is amazing. And look at that Carolina blue sky! Ours was missing in action as we had a bad rain most of the night.

Pamela Gordon said...

Those are beautiful statues. And what a great shot of the full blood moon!

Wanda said...

Just beautiful and with the statues in each card...outstanding.

Have a great week.

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Don't know about anyone else, but that last shot has me saying "woo-hoo!!!":@)

kitty said...

I agree, Diane, Hendersonville and Asheville are wonderful spots. I love your note cards and your photo of the eclipse!

Debby Ray said...

Beautiful images of NC and lovely cards! That pink dogwood is beautiful...one of my faves! I was looking for the moon last night but it was rainy and nothing to see except yuck :( Hope you are having a good week!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I am not talented enough to make note cards and I miss the lunar blood moon! Oh Diane! I am a loser!! Beautiful photo's!
Sending you a big hug!!

Vee said...

You're very trusting, aren't you?! LOL! That is a great view of The Blood Moon. And that final card makes quite a statement, doesn't it?! Yes, I would definitely take a second look.

Debby said...

Love your beautiful photos. Also love the moon picture.

Sue said...

Lovely notecards you have shared, I missed the lunar eclipse last night, it is so lovely too! Thank you for sharing.

Sam I Am...... said...

How did I miss the eclipse??? The one night I didn't watch the news because I had a phone call and I even went out and took pictures of the moon earlier in the evening because I thought it was pretty and I was up at 3:00 a.m. ...I could kick myself! There's one in November but it will probably be cloudy that night knowing my luck! LOL!
I love your photos from NC. I visited there in the Fall and it was gorgeous!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Stunning statues on your note cards and I love the angel. Us Lavender gals do think alike! :-)
Happy Easter Diane

Carol OurSearsKitHome said...

Oh, what lovely gardens!
Our skies were very overcast here, so no viewing at 2am. Beautiful lunar eclipse shot!
And I love your monkey post previous to this one...

Noelle the dreamer said...

Great photo, tell hubby!
Hugs,

Montanagirl said...

Terrific photos! Enjoyed the statues, and I really like your box lid. And the moon is gorgeous. I missed it.

Cheryl said...

An elegant collection of note cards!

I considered getting up to see the blood moon, but I went to bed too late and decided not to set my alarm. I think there's another eclipse in October...

Your photo is beautiful!

Dorothy Crutchfield said...

Beautiful photos, Diane, and I love the one of the eclipse! We had thunderstorms all night here so I missed it. Thanks for sharing.
Hope you have a wonderful Easter,
Dorothy

Linda H said...

Lovely photos Diane- love all those blue skies! Great eclipse shot too- too cloudy here to see it...

The Polka Dot Closet said...

3:30 am, I don't know if you are a night owl or early riser!!! I'm a night owl and saw it...Amazing, so are your gorgeous Asheville NC

Carol

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

WOW those blue skies are absolutely amazing! And we had complete snow clouds covering the moon last night so...:-(

Of course tonight is crystal clear and that moon is as bright as ever!
What a difference a day makes.

Happy card day!!

Short and Sweet said...

Beautiful pictures and thanks for sharing. Also thanks for letting me know about the extra letter in my address. It's fixed now!

Snap said...

Beautiful! I don't think there is a spot in NC that isn't pretty (at least I haven't found one yet). Great Moon!

Mary said...

Great cards Diane, especially love the guy at the Biltmore looking over his shoulder at the pink dogwood in full bloom!
I always enjoy searching through old cemeteries and discovering beautiful angels - I've seen these also…….in the one where Thomas Wolfe is buried I believe.

Happy Spring - although with the drop to 30 last night it doesn't feel like it this morning! Hopefully the azaleas and other flowering shrubs are safe - cold again tonight though!

Hugs - Mary

My Maine Blog said...

Such beautiful photographs and they would make such lovely note cards. Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your very kind words.

Debbie said...

I am so ferhoodled these days that I forgot we were supposed to have an eclipse. I love that shot of yours and am glad you included it.

As for the rest of them? I love the theme of the statues, and the blue skies are just beautiful. Wonderful cards!

Jeanne said...

Very nice!

Peggy Jones said...

I was not brave enough to get up to check the moon but in the morning we had snow so probably was cloudy anyway. Your shot is great. Beautiful note cards too. Love NC.
Have a good week-end.

Carol said...

Lovely notecards, the statues are so interesting.

Smiles,
Carol

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I was hoping to see some lunar eclipse photos when I checked my bloglist today. Thank you (from one too lazy to set an alarm). I love your notecards as always.

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, look at these amazing statues! I have always loved old and historic statues, so they caught my eye right away. The picture of the moon that your husband took is wonderful. I love moon pictures myself, but never get a chance to take them cause I go to bed too early haha.

love,
~Sheri
