"He who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth is generally considered a fortunate person, but his good fortune is small compared to that of the happy mortal who enters this world with a passion for flowers in his soul." -- Celia Thaxter
Snow fell like confetti last night. Quite a contrast to the fifty-ish temperatures we enjoyed earlier in the week. Those warm, sunny days were a welcome respite from the winter chill and reminded me that, in a few months, spring will show up on our doorstep with flowers in hand. In the meantime, the geraniums that surround Dennis's bronze sculpture next to my writing space will have to suffice.
Quiet winter months do seem to bring a burst of creativity. Dennis has been working on watercolors. These are two of my favorites.

In keeping with the bloom theme, I thought it would be fun to share these flower photos from my archive.

I use any excuse I can to spend time in my friend Meka's garden. It's a joy to photograph.
Hers is truly my dream garden. Even in the winter it's beautiful.
You can see more photos of Meka's magical garden here.
My beloved is mine and I am his;
he browses among the lilies.
