Spring is Springing!!

After a much colder and wetter than normal Spring things seem growing much slower than usual.  We've only had a very few days of sunshine.  I've found it hard to not complain.
This morning after waking up to clouds once again - after hearing a prediction for sunshine that didn't show, I decided to take a walk around the yard and try and find Spring.  And she was here - I just had to look!!
A little clump of violets - so sweet!!

English Daisies - hoping they will spread around my garden!!!

My faithful old Pie Cherry

a lone Welsh Poppy - another one I hope spreads around my garden!!!

I used to call them Bluebells - now I know they are Wood Hyacinths
I'm hoping for more sunshine but seeing a few cheerful blooms did lift my spirits and remind me that God's plans for the seasons continue - in spite of rain and chill!!!

Blessings,
Christine

I'm with you on the whole feeling that spring is passing us by...our area has had little sunshine too. Trying NOT to complain is becoming quite a chore. :) I want to use my clothesline and open windows. It will come in time...I know!

Praying for a bright, sunny day for you...and for me. :) Your flowers are beautiful!

The weather has been nice here too!
Hubby mowed the lawn yesterday and I could finally smell the sweet smell of flowers waifing in the air.

I love all your flowers! So lovely!
You are in my prayers as your day gets close! (this month?)

Peace and Joy,
Georgiann
