A - Z Challenge: Flowers

Spring is so-o slow arriving.

It teases us with a sunny hour and then the rain clouds roll in again.


These flowers have no idea that we humans are fretting about the delay.  They just grow some new leaves when it seems warm enough.  Then bloom when the sun peeks through.  A simple plan yet it brings great joy.

Well, maybe we should be more like these flowers! It comes when it comes. There is still much to enjoy before the really hot weather and bugs come!! Love that sweet little purple flower!

I keep hoping the flowers will hurry up here, too.

I'm enjoying yellow tulips in my first ever garden - bliss!

You have a very nice blog with some enjoyable posts. I especially liked the one on "doors". I have a bit of an obsession with them myself. I'm stopping by from the "A to Z" challenge and I look forward to reading more from you.

We probably shouln't fret, just do what the flowers do and take each day as it comes, but it's hard to do that when you want sun and warmth, isn't it?
We're enjoying unseasonally warm weather here, and I must say,
it is blissful!

They certainly do bring great joy! I just finished planting two more flower beds!

Beautiful! My daffodils finally have their heads up (they were droopy for a few days, even after opening).

Margo Kelly said...

daffodils are my favorite!

Your spring is late & so is our autumn. Plants just do what the seasons bring. have a good W/E.

Those are lovely. Our daffodils are getting past their prime now, tulips are on their way, but primroses are out and looking so pretty. I love this time of year.

Yes those flowers have much to teach us--in addition to showing us their beauty.
