Sunshine and Flowers

Oh that life could always be full of sunny days and pretty posies.

 
We’re still having cold frosty mornings, but the afternoons warm up a bit. Today is the start of a warming trend 58…66…79 (!) and then back downward 74…63…
The good news is I don’t see anything below 60 for the next 2 week forecast.
 
Our frosty mornings look like this…
 
 
But the sun comes up and does its job…
 
And pretty soon the flowers lift happy faces up to be kissed by sunshine.
 
 
 
And you just can’t resist bringing a little of that happiness inside…
 
 
And now…it’s back outside to pick up sticks and rake dried up leaves off some of the flower beds. The couple of windy days we had wreaked havoc, and the extremely cold winter burnt my pachysandra something awful. A little trimming and raking should spruce things up!
 
The daffodils, tulips and lilies of the field may not have to toil or spin… but it turns out I must.

    Spring is a beautiful time of the year, and it's finally coming to Wisconsin, too. I plan to pick some daffodils and tulips from the flower beds on our farm tomorrow.Thanks for sharing your enjoyment of spring, and your pictures, with all of us.

    Betsy, Such beautiful photography to accompany your refreshing, spring thoughts. I am enjoying springtime, too, getting ready to plant some corn, beans, and squash: the three sisters.
