Spring Flowers – Everywhere

For Terri’s Sunday Stills – Fabulous Florals. Spring is in the air, and everywhere she is breaking out the sparkle.

Little Johnny Jump-ups (Violas) brighten any day.

“Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.”
~Rainier Maria Rilke

Tiny Lantana begin to burst forth.

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly,
the whole world would change.”
~Buddha

“Feed me Seymour” ~ Audrey – Little Shop of Horrors

Spooky pitcher plants lurking in the shadows, waiting for … lunch.

“Where flowers bloom, so does hope” ~ Lady Bird Johnson

Many varieties of Rhododendron thrill the eye and delight the spirit.

“It’s always spring and everyone’s in love and flowers pick themselves.” ~E.E. Cummings

Wild Hibiscus, a marvelous nature walk find.

Flowers floating to the ground
petals falling, make no sound
pink snow flying fills the air
petals falling everywhere
flowers in my hair
the scent of spring
fills the air. ~JP

If we were having coffee this week, I’d tell you April has been a mixed bag of a month. It started with a mad dash to South Dakota that was more exhausting than exciting. Then to a nasty virus (not COVID) that led to a Sarcie Flare, which led to a 14-day round of steroid therapy, which led to visits with my pulmo and cardio doctors, and is now ending with me wearing a heart monitor (don’t worry, it’s nothing serious). So maybe it hasn’t been quite the fun month I was hoping for but I got lots of yard work done and the front and back areas are beginning to come together. Come Spring and Welcome.

Til next time ~ Stay Trippy Hippies ~JP

  2. Pretty flowers! We are just coming off snow storms. I am hoping that something in my tiny flower garden will have survived. Good on the yard work! We have a lot of bare spots, but my husband bought some grass seed that is supposed to be shade tolerant and we got it spread out before the rain started again.

    Best wishes for your week! β€” Liz
