"If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom." ~Terri Guillemets
I awoke this morning to find that the iris have started blooming! I was so excited, I rushed out to take pictures as the sun was rising. You can see my neighbor's meadow, err, yard, in the background. He hasn't mowed it yet this spring. I think he's making hay or something over there.
A lovely chive flower.
Perennial sage, one of my favorites. I think I have about 5 different kinds.
The flag unfurls. When I was a kid, we called them flags. Did you?
I was really excited about allium last year and planted about 15 bulbs around the garden.
Sweet pink columbine.
A luscious fuschia spiderwort.
And here is something that doesn't belong in this post but I had to share, my Bride of Frankenstein painting created for EHAG's B&W Fright Challenge. I'll be listing her on ebay this week! Isn't she a beauty?
"My spirits were elevated by the enchanting appearance of nature; the past was blotted from my memory, the present was tranquil, and the future gilded by bright rays of hope and anticipations of joy." ~ Mary Shelley
