Not so long ago -- this was the scene in the garden.
The flower pots showed no signs of their spring selves and this poor butterfly wondered what all this cold white stuff was...
Today, as I walk out the door I'm greeted with this beautiful white bloodroot flower - shyly still closed up.
As the sun starts to shine so does this lovely, ethereal flower.
The phlox is in full bloom, even a little earlier this year than last and already spreading rapidly.
Each season has its beauty but after being an 'inside' creature for this past winter, I'm happy to celebrate spring.
"I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen." - Anne Lamott
