Well lo and behold, our long-loved Batman seems to have quite a dilemma ... I know ... What in the world? Batman can take care of anything!! Well, it seems that Batman needs our help today. (Who, me -- as part of "our"?? His aging Aunt Felisha Batisha is now in the tender care of our Batman. But WAIT! Her sister, Aunt BeBatrice is coming to visit .... uh-ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Time to get creative & busy for Mudder's Tea-Potters. Our challenge is to bring in some exotic flowers, beautiful birds and anything that smells good to gussi up the Bat Cave so Aunt BeBatrice doesn't know any better ... 'Surely you remember ... Batman does live in a "BatCave", after all!' So I'm bringing a hanging 'basket' of Fuchsias. Now I know ... if you live in CA, these do not seem 'exotic' at all. In fact, my first exposure to live fuchsias was in Lodi, CA, at my Aunt's nursery. Clearly that made an impact on me! From my personal perspective, these are 'exotic', Mudder. And although I have tried to bring life to these here, I simply have far too much direct sun for many plants ... unless I were to water twice a day throughout our Summers. Alas, that just doesn't work for me IRL ... sigh .... So here's my contribution! All stamps are from Rubbernecker Stamps.

She's pretty picky too when it comes to her flowers, maybe she knows your Aunt! She might even shop at her nursery! Ooh......Bev, girlfriend, you better behave yourself today...you don't wanna risk having rumors of how you carry on at our teaparties get back to your family via your Aunt's nursery! Okay, I got your back, whoop it up right now....Aunt BeBatricie went to the potty and she's having trouble finding it ihere in the Bat Cave! Snort!
Your card rocks....I can think of alot of Rubbernecker images that would gussi up the Bat Cave! Woot!

Pretty card - I like the vibrant colors and that piercing. I also like you story. I grew up in North Dakota and remember my mother had a HUGE fuchsia plant - It was in a pot, indoors so we could enjoy it year round. Thanks for the memory.
