blooms the end of the day...

As Margaret Atwood has famously said, “In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt."  

Check.  And it's only midday.    

The weather has been cool and rainy here lately.  So, when I noticed the sun was shining, I took a walk through my yard with my macro lens and, coincidentally, I now smell of dirt.  I love springtime (and dirt!)!!  

How about you?  How's your weather?  What's blooming in your yard?  Thanks for stopping by!!    

P.s. Happy birthday in heaven to my Great Aunt Helen!!  I'm certain she's keeping the angels in line.  <3  Love you, Aunt Helen!!  You're a shining star!  

It's that time again...

They're here!  The lilacs are in bloom!!  I pulled out my step ladder and shears and went to the task of snipping and shaping a bouquet for our dining table.  Their fragrance is the most amazing joy!  Breathe deep!!!  Ahhh...  I strongly suspect this is what heaven smells of.  


I hope you are enjoying the earth's awakening, the rebirth and the flowers where you are!  I could never tire of springtime blooms!!  How about you?  What's blooming in your area?  Did you pull out your ladder to snip some lilacs for your table as well?  :)  Thanks for stopping by, friends!
