TODAY'S FLOWERS & I Heart Macro - Spring has sprung

Often last winter I did not expect to see another spring
yet here it is, in all it's glory

even without the ability to care for my garden,
it gives me joy after joy

anemones have been more glorious than ever
all winter long I had things flowering
to feed any bee brave enough
to venture out

I had so much blossom from white to deep pink
that I could shake the trees over visiting children
hand have them dancing around in veritable 
snowfalls of petals

tulips have gone crazy and multiplied like rabbits

even Kookie was astonished
at this fringed variety

only my daffodils turned their backs on me
but glowed like stars in a midnight sky
to light up an overgrown patch of garden.

Please forgive me for only sporadic visiting.
I find it hard to sit at the computer
and enjoy so very much when YOU pop by.

  10. Dear Arija ... I am so very glad when your posts pop up on my Feedly favorites list. And I am delighted to see your Spring beauties. Your garden is lovely and shows the love that you have for it and all the work of past years... Now is your time to just enjoy! Let others do the heavy lifting (metaphorically speaking).... Even if nobody does anything at all, those daffodils are going to bloom anyway! All so lovely. Thanks for sharing with this non gardener... I gave up On it sooner than you did.

  11. Arija... I saw your comment on Sallie's blog. I know you have had health problems for some time and I am so sorry it is so difficult. I remember years ago that you posted about being an "ent" and that you could handle much on your shoulders.

    Thank you for being a sympathetic ear and wise presence. Many hugs... Michelle

  12. I came by to see how you were doing Arija, and lo and behold I see this lovely post that I missed. All very beautiful photos, especially loved the one with precious Kookie. Just letting you know I was thinking about you and send you lots of hugs.

  13. Such beautiful images! I particularly love the second image, the details are divine!
