I know, I know Spring is not here yet,
but after the holidays and first of year I begin looking for signs.
It brings me such JOY to find signs in the garden that Spring is on it's way.
Above the hellebore are beginning to bloom.
How I love the pink and creamy white flowers in the garden.
Since there are many buds on our 35 camellia plants,
I have been watching them closely.
We had one rouge bloom a month ago, but nothing else.
Now just yesterday I see HOPE in the garden
with this sweet pink bud.
Then daphne is always an early bloomer and once
we see the sun these buds will open up and the fragrance with
This is winter jasmine.
No fragrance, but sitting just under the hummingbird feeder,
they love to make a stop here for some nectar.
And finally, the flower that just says "Spring" to me, daffodils.
Can you see the heads forming?
Very soon there will be daffodils in the garden.
And then I can say, spring has arrived.
"To see a World in a Grain of Sand,
and a Heaven in a Wild Flower."
What would you add to that quote?
Happy weekend, dear friends!
