Mosaic Monday: Spring Openings








Though today is damp and rainy,
I can see the lilac in bloom outside
the guest room window.
Some of the camellias are still in bloom
and the peonies planted up against
the south side of the house are in bud.
Aquilegias and violets are naturalizing
in the side yard garden
and make a pretty sight --
a nice contrast to the hostas
that are shaded by my neighbor's laurel hedge.
I love the opening energy of spring!

Those pinks and blues are still ahead of us up here. We're still firmly in the yellow of daffodil and the blue of grape hyacinth.
