As much as I love Maine, it has a long winter and this is one to remember. Feet of snow and slippery ice there makes Houston a very good place to be this time of year.
Trees are bare of leaves, many days the sky is dreary and there are still cool days, but none of this keeps spring from appearing right on schedule. First come the flowering trees.
One day limbs are laden with tight little buds
and the next they are a sea of color. Each year I know just where to look for my favorites and they never disappoint.
Gardens are vivid with color only God can create,
and tulips bloom bravely during their very short season.
Not too far behind are azaleas that are just now starting to open and I can never resist bringing the first ones inside.
For those of you still laboring under the weight of snow and ice, take heed. Spring will come your way, and the beauty of blooming things will likely outlast those in Houston when summer heat takes its toll.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
