Beautiful Spring Blooms
How passionately we love everything that cannot last: the dazzling crystallory of winter, the spring in bloom, the fragile flight of butterflies, crimson sunsets, a kiss, and life. ~Dean Koontz
I've enjoyed seeing the bright, pink blossoms of my azalea bushes this past week, and also the heavenly scent of my lily of the valley flowers. I thought I'd post a few photos of them to share. Thank goodness they're both very hardy plants who somehow survive despite my complete lack of a green thumb. These photos were taken last week...as I look out the window today, the heavy rain has battered them down and the blooms are starting to fade. The beauty of their blooms may be fleeting, but they sure make me smile year after year!
