“Every spring is the only spring – a perpetual astonishment.”
~ Ellis Peters
Just thought I’d send you one of my favourite flowers
to celebrate the official arrival of Spring!
Spring shows what God can do
with a drab and dirty world.

A friend has this unusual Sensation Lilac bush in her garden.
It smells like sweet heaven and
these 4-petal blooms almost look like butterflies
ready to flutter off into the dawn.
Even in the darkest valley
there is a lily
the sweet promise of things to come
… in time it all unfolds
It is good to be alone in a garden at dawn or dark
so that all its shy presences may haunt you and possess you
in a reverie of suspended thought.
~ James Douglas
I love all things green –
but especially the vibrant green of newborn Spring leaves.
Colour brings me joy!
