Spring. What’s not to love?!
Spring Beauties in the green grass.
Daffodils in the sun.
Grape Hyacinths coming up in the most unlikely places.
Bloodroot in the woods. The whitest of white flowers.
And Bleeding Hearts, of course. I was six or seven years old the first time I saw Bleeding Hearts. I still have the picture in my head. I was so impressed by their shape and beautiful color. They were blooming in the garden of our neighbor Gladys Love. It was one of our jobs as kids to carry drinking water from her well to our house across the street. I always enjoyed her flowers as I filled the bucket with water.
The peonies are shooting up!
The flowering almond is a shrub we had at our house as I grew up. It sat next to the steps to the front door.
And more daffodils…
It’s a beautiful time of year.
If you’re going to the nursing home, stop by and pick some daffodils for your loved ones.
