Spring Blooms!

Did you read BLOOM as a noun... "Spring Blooms"
or as a VERB... "Spring Blo-o-o-oms"?
Actually, you could read it either way
but I wrote it
as a verb.


As in... Ta da! 
(Drum Roll Please)

Spring has finally arrived!

 Is there any season
that brings such SWEET anticipation?
I don't think so.

In the Fall we plant bulbs deep
in rich garden soil 
and wait PATIENTLY throughout the Winter
for the warmth of the golden sun to wake them up.

And when they do...
it's a really BIG deal.
Oh we do get excited when the Tulips bloom.

Springs brings RENEWAL to our gardens...
 every bud and blossom, 
every blade of grass
every leaf 
is fresh and new.

 This renewal of life
and reminds us of our Divine Creator.

And we feel very BLESSED... 
blessed to live in this place, 
blessed to cultivate this earth,
blessed to nurture all 
that share our space...
the birds, 
the bugs, 
the bees.

Isn't it a glorious scene to behold
as the earth AWAKENS?

So glad it's SPRING!

But so mindful that SNOW could still fall
in This Grandmother's Garden.

Visit Carol to see more blooms 
on this very day 
all across this beautiful world.

If I Post It... Will She Come?

The Spring Header is UP!

So, if I post about Spring will she finally come? Hey, it's worth a try don't you think?

Here's a post from last Spring... surely one of my favorites. Enjoy!
(Our Redbuds are actually very tiny and tight as I write this. Sunshine... we need SUNSHINE!) 


 Early morning snow in my gardens!


Grab a sweatshirt and run out in your PJ's!

There's MAGIC in the gardens
and it won't last long...

Spring Snow always melts so quickly.

Redbuds in Snow

The Redbuds are waiting patiently for sunshine,
and when it comes,
 those tiny little buds will "POP"!

Sweet Reflection

 Can you SEE the magic?

Enchanted Drop of Melted Snow

It's "take my breath away" beautiful!

I told you there was MAGIC in my gardens. 

Blooming Requires... PATIENCE

 All of Nature is waiting patiently...
but Spring is coming sooo very slowly.

Sensation Lilac

 Buds are tiptoeing cautiously...
Is it going to be SUNNY or SNOWY?
Warm or Cold?

Maple Leaf Babies

Is it safe to come out yet?
I don't think so, 

Didn't you hear?
There's more SNOW in the forecast.

Pretty Periwinkle Peeking Out from Snow
Real Blooms!
 Contrary to what you may think,
these little buds and blooms will be just fine.

This is Spring in Utah.


Though I do think 
they're BRAVE little souls.

Don't you?
