Spring is just taking my breathe away.
Each year I am more amazed by it's beauty.
After the dark days of winter I rejoice in the color,
in the festivity of it all.
Above is the elderflowers in my garden right now.
This weekend I hope to do something delicious with it.
The mountain laurel returns so consistently beautiful each year.
Allium so briefly is here and then it is gone.
For some reason my "live-in gardener" tucked it in
the garden where I sometimes miss it.
I must go looking and there it is in all it's glory.
And finally roses!
They are enchanting me right now.
The garden is full of their blooms
and I am in love with them.
Though with the new life of Springtime
I see how fleeting it is.
Life speeds along so quickly.
I want to hold the beauty of Springtime in my arms,
embrace it, and tell it to stay awhile.
Step out this weekend and savor every moment of Springtime,
Create memories of the beauty in your mind for those dark
nights of winter.
Happy weekend, dear friends!
