Spring flowers are so refreshing after a long winter stretch. My mother has a beautiful garden that shows the thought and care she puts into it weekly. I remember the big box of bulbs that came in the mail last fall. After painstaking hours of digging, planting, watering, and probably praying after the late frost, beautiful colors have rose from the flower bed. Many drive by and enjoy what her hard work has bloomed. So this I share with you, too.

The winter has been long and cold, but the moisture it has brought will hopefully make way for beautiful spring flowers. Warm weather, we will welcome you with open arms. Come bless us with warm rays of sunshine!
