Spring Comes Softly

Spring comes softly in so many pretty pastel colors.
A few Virginia Blue Bells that I cherish and love as they were given to me by a dear friend who passed away from leukemia.
 Sweet little violets that self seed and pop up everywhere in the spring.
Precious soft yellow primroses that I brought with me from Maryland when I moved here 24 years ago.  This is the last surviving plant after all these years.
Spring comes fragrantly to my yard in the form of lilac, wisteria and honeysuckle trees.  For a few weeks every spring, my yard smells like heaven.
 Sweet little pansies that I have finally gotten to grow for me after years of trying.
And a little cherub angel to make it feel a little more like heaven on earth. 
So thankful today for spring and all the wonders it brings to renew our souls. 
Wishing you a week full of spring wonders.

Beautiful flowers - my oh my!

My lilacs haven't even formed yet.

Can't wait.

Lovely post, Cindy.

Thanks for posting such loveliness! I feel like I'm missing out on Spring this year as there is not a lot of color here in the Mohave Desert. So, I will enjoy your lovely flowers! Too bad we can't smell them on our computers...

Plants mean a lot when they have been given by dear friends and are a living remembrance of cherished friendships. How lovely that your primrose is still giving pleasure and the little violets self-seed! They are all Springtime flowers that bring joy. I can just imagine the perfume from the lilac blossom.

Your lovely plants and pictures are so refreshing to the soul... So meaningful to have plants living on long after our loved ones have departed. May you have a blessed week!
