Spring colour

A basket of spring blossoms seems just right for a chilly holiday Monday morning.

All of these will show up in my garden in a month or two and be a welcome sight. In the meantime I've posted this photograph to my desk top so I see it every day. I can almost smell that beautiful hyacinth which has to be one of my favourite spring flowers... and pansies - love them too - well I guess I just love them all. Gardening seems to go along with animals and birds in my world.

Hopefully you too will have some bright colour in your world today, naturally you who live or are vacationing in southern climes will do so. But the changing seasons in both northern and southern hemispheres seem to make colour seem all the more precious.

As they say "carpe diem" - looks like a good one!


  1. The color is well below three feet of snow on the ground here, but given this photo I can dream can't I.

    Really reminded me of the forth coming season. Something to look forward to, no doubt!

  2. That is such a lovely basket of flowers! If I had a garden..or if I could even grow anything without killing it, I would love to have fresh flowers every day :)

    I can't wait for your weather to change so I can see all of your spring time activities :)
