Once In a LIfetime . . .

unusual
"happenings happening"
here in michigan
it has been a good two weeks
of sunny days
blue sky
summer like weather
everyone is buzzing about it
doubt I will see this kind of march
 again in my lifetime
first day of spring
eighty three degrees

forsythia in bloom


bright yellow tulips from the market





blooming on riverwood
hellebore
 white . . .yellow . . . pink






budding trees



GARDENS
~
Gardens
should be
lovely
 well-shaped girls
all curves
 secret corners
 unexpected deviations
seductive surprises
and
then
still more curves

happy springtime
fill it with love

Love that description of a garden. Made me smile. : )

Working on some photos of surprises I found in the garden tonight. I did a double take; the forsythia was one of them.

Beautiful photos! Nothing in bloom here but it's hot and summerlike too. I like the poem about Gardens at the end of your post. Enjoy the lovely weather! Hugs, Pamela

Oh, your wysteria! I forget to bring some indoors every year. And as for this lifetime? Global warming, Baby. It could happen next year too!

Reading GARDENS by H E Bates was a wonderful start to my morning. Thanks for all the inspiration, Lynne.

Hi Lynne, Love that, once in a lifetime... We may never pass this way again... Drink it all in! Love, Penny

This morning my daughter brought me a picture of a wagon wheel laid flat on the ground with herbs planted beteen the spokes. The circles and curves suggested by the poetry you posted and the photo's fit right in to complete the project. Serendipity.

Oh Miss Lynne, ya almost beat me to the punch. Our forsythia bloomed just this week.

Wacky wild weather!

Have yourself an awesomely blessed weekend sweetie.

Beautiful bloomers! :o)

Hi Lynne

Happy birthday to your lovely grandchildren!

Thanks for your comments.

All well here but am just finding it so difficult to work fulltime, do all the householdy stuff and blog too!!

Hopefully I will be back blogging soon.

I miss you all.

Take care of you.
