Spring Has Sprung

A sunny afternoon - a walk around the yard - the marvel of flowers where it seemed not so long ago snow lay on the ground.

Some are quite showy, others are small and easily overlooked.  

Some look like small lavender lanterns.

Some look like small white orchids.

All of them beautiful and the answer to nature's promise that spring will follow winter.

"Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light". - Theodore Roethke


  1. How pretty! My Weigela is just now starting to bud. I always look forward to the pink flowers. I can't waite to get out and start cleaning the gardens, but 45 degree highs make it still pretty cold when I get home from work. Won't be long though!

  2. We have been so fortunate with this spring. Lots of rain interspersed with some pleasant 60-70 degree weather. Its been perfect growing weather. I even found a first rosebud yesterday morning. - Penny

  3. Love the quote, so perfect with your lovely photos. We have some of the same little flowers here, but we are a good 3 - 4 weeks behind you in south Jersey. Thanks for the preview!
