Friday Finding Beauty

Hanging Basket Hyacinths
Beautiful Pansie that just keeps blooming...and blooming...

Seems like this petunia is glowing.

********
To believe in magic as a viable way of enhancing our quality of life does require a leap of faith.
  We must see life in slightly romantic terms;
recognize falling in love or growing a flower
or even cooking a perfect pie as a demonstration of the magic of balance,
of everything coming together in just the right way.

Absolutely gorgeous - I am in awe of anyone who can grow such beautiful flowers - I have the proverbial "brown" thumb.

I'm looking forward to getting home and getting my garden ready for spring. Your beautiful flowers give me inspiration.

Here in Denver, you don't start on your yard until Mother's Day!
