It took awhile for spring to arrive this year. Drizzly, chilly weather slowed the progress of growth in the garden and delayed the blooms of flowers in my garden. But it finally arrived, and it seems vital to duly acknowledge the arrival of spring before the seasons passes on to summer. Hot weather has arrived and the tender blossoms of spring are fading quickly. Lilac, snowball, iris, money plant, peony, dogwood, red bud, rhododendron, tulips, daffodils, cherry, lily of the valley, crab apple, onion blossom, chive blossom, forget-me-not, and more have graced my garden with beautiful blooms this spring. Ninety degree temperatures are sure to fade springs bloom, but summer flowers are soon to follow. Yesterday my roses enjoyed the sunshine and a handful of rose buds opened to full bloom. I'll post pictures of those another day. For now...let's enjoy the beauty of spring.
