FLOWERS

Even though we have not seen the sun in several days,
there is a feeling of change in the air.
The temperatures are mild and the snow is melting.Yeah!!!
Can the new growth be far behind?
These are flowers from last years gardens,some of ours,and some in parks.
Regardless of where the flowers are growing,they bring joy to those who stop 
long enough to notice.I hope these bring cheer to your day.
I found this little verse and thought it was most appropriate for this season.
Flowers sleep beneath the ground,
But when they hear springs waking sound,
They push themselves through layers of clay,
To reach the sunlight of God's day.

  3. That is a beautiful collage. I am so partial to pink and green. I guess yo could say it "speaks to my heart"

    I know just what you mean about the feeling in the air. Although we have been blessed with sunshine the last few days (although we didn't see much of it yesterday) and the temps are in the hi 40 - 50 range. Our snow is melting and the kids are playing outside -
    We feel the joy of freedom once again from being cooped up all winter - keeping warm in the house!

    Its funny - there is still snow on the ground and yet kids are outside in shorts and folks are hardly wearing jackets!

  12. Gorgeous! and I love the poem as well. It's good to think that all those 'sleeping' flowers will be emerging before long to show us the beauty of God's creation.
