Welcome spring.....

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

These tulips come from a tulip farm near our weekend cottage. I bought some bouquets as I wanted to start the first day of spring with the colorful flowers around me. This bouquet is purple tulips and I also have one of lilac double tulips and a bouquet of pink and cream tulips. I wish you all a colorful start to spring. Even if the weather where you are is not spring~like, celebrate the start of the season in your heart.

Not sure what I like the most, the poem, the picture or the tulips! Just wonderful! You are making me yearn for Spring! Our first day is cold, 37 deg. F : (

Happy Spring to you, Heidi! I love the "secret garden" picture ~ my Mom has it hanging in her home. ♥

Ok, you got me this time. Could this be you a long time ago, knocking at the door? I would say
"hello, who are you?". Your comment was always someone different, but sometimes it was, Little Red Riding Hood. Are you remembering?
love Mom
