Spring Blooms Eternal........

Or at least for a little while.

These are pictures of some of the flowers now blooming in our yard. I love this time of year! When I feel a little "blah" I just take a walk around the yard and look at the Creator's handiwork.

The bright and cheerful rose is a Lady Banks rose given to me for Mother's Day a few years back by Lisa, Todd and Meagen. It's in full bloom and like a "blob" of sunshine in our front yard.

The little flowes are called Rain Lillies. We discovered the plants in our daughter, Lisa's backyard after their home had flooded. When the water receded the lillies came up in abundance across the yard.

The Japanese Snowball bush ( which has grown into more of a tree than a bush) is another Mother's Day present given to me by Mark, Janet and family. This is the only snow that I like in my yard. LOL

Springtime has come to our little homestead. Even with temps down to thirty-five and frost yesterday morning (Wednesday, April 6th) the flowers still bloom profusely. I can't help but smile when I take a walk around our yard.
