You were right. Spring arrived.
Ten days ago I only had a few scilla and andromeda flowers.
Now there are cherry blossoms, viburnum,
and lilacs (not pictured).
(and a day of unexplainable blurry photos)
lilies of the valley
Inside, an elegant orchid from my sons,
and a new season of painting.
I'm savoring the long light-filled days, bird songs and blossoms,
and dreaming of touring English gardens. This book,
A Natural History of English Gardening looks amazing.
I hope that you are enjoying spring,
or fall, if you are on the other side of the world,
that there is light and beauty in your days.
(Because that's who I really am--Jen was a phase brought about by the desire
for a shorter email address. I can't live up to the perkiness it implies.)
