I love this photo of yellow spring flowers planted thick, one of them even falling over! To my eye, this is “real spring” in southwestern Ontario. We need to wait a couple more weeks for it, at least according to last year’s schedule.
In the meantime, I find these stark purple and white crocuses just as satisfying – maybe more so. It’s fun to watch bulbs bursting forth in unexpected places.The bench speaks to me of welcome and warmth and promise in days to come. The photos together assure me that not every week in May will be chill and rainy. And amazingly, by early evening, warmth and sun have returned, new bulbs have burst forth, and new flowers are blooming.
Questions for Reflection:
- Do you prefer the beauty of cultivated beds of spring flowers, or the surprise of bulbs springing up in unexpected places? Why?
- What assures you that not every week in May will be chill and rainy?
