Spring Flowers!

The awakening of spring flowers is finally here!

Beautiful chive blooms are like a 
firework explosion of 
pink and lavender!

The lungwort flower is not to be outdone!
I always marvel at these flowers
and their beautiful 
shades of blue, pink, and purple.

It amazes me that these shade loving flowers
have such magnificent color combinations!

I also have these soft yellow primroses in my garden...
they are lovely and smell oh so nice!

I love these flowers
because they
come back year after year without fail!!!!!!!!

In the woods wild red currants are 
bursting forth their tiny pink flowers.

And just for fun........I have included a whole vase full of paper cupcake flowers!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend 
enjoying the flowers in your area!!

  9. Dear Chris,

    we call the little violet primulas "Aurikel" in germany. They are so romantic and nostalgic.
    May is the most beautiful month of the year, all is growing and blooming. And the sweet smell makes me happy.
