April is here again, which is a great time for me to dream of flower and plants via the A to Z Challenge. I think that is almost the only time of the year at which I update this blog. Thank you to those of you who stick it out and visit, anyway!
Upstate NY is yet again taunting us. Today is April Fool's Day. After a gorgeous weekend in which I was sitting outside writing, while starting to enjoy the spring blooms, Mother Nature's evil trick was to send us some more snow.
I ran around on Saturday, in the glorious sunshine, taking pictures of some of my flowers. I love to do that, and to share them all online. I love flowers. I love photography.
Ahhhh, isn't that picture just the essence of springtime happiness? It evokes all kinds of thoughts of getting my hands dirty and creating new things of beauty and raising some of my own food to eat. To share Nature's bounty.
And then we get stupid snow. And rain. And wind. And cold. Even the flowers were huddling today.
I keep reminding myself that this is all a part of the cycle of the seasons. It is a necessary evil to achieve the beauty and bounty of summer. It just seems to take too long at times, especially when one is on Spring Break and is aching to get out there and get busy!
What are your plans for gardening this year?
