Around the yard.....

I'm loving spring-time this year,
I think more than in the years past.
It's probably because we had such a cold, snowy, icy February.
Now, everything is getting green and colorful and simply BEAUTIFUL.
Of  course, we're finding LOTS of things that are in need of repair and cleaning and  sprucing up.....
but there are still lots of pretties to enjoy!

In honor of my Daddy, 
who loved flowers, too,
I'm gonna share some of the things blooming in the yard.
Today would have been his 87th birthday.....
and oh, how he's missed by this Daddy's girl.

My precious Daddy

Grape Hyacinths

Daffodils from my Mamaw's old home place


  Hyacinths from a flower arrangement from many years ago

 Star of Bethlehem
(the flowers close at night and open back up during the day)


 Creeping phlox

Song of Solomon 2:12
The flowers are springing up,
    the season of singing birds has come,
    and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air.

Breathing in Grace,
