EVERYTHING started to bloom this week.
First, it was the Cherry Tree Blossoms, and…
Then, the vines on the fence had yellow flowers.
And, in the backyard the Wisteria perfumed the air.
And, even tipped over spreading petals on the ground.
Today, I noticed a tree full of pink buds & blooms.
And, yet another bush full of yellow miniature roses.
And, then my walk around the lake, led me to my favorite color “Red” with flowers fully opened on the Azalea bush.
Hurrah, Hurrah – Spring has finally arrived!
OH, give us pleasure in the flowers today; And give us not to think so far away As the uncertain harvest; keep us here All simply in the springing of the year…
