Uncovered surprises

With rain and warmer temperatures, most of our snow cover has melted.  What surprised me was what has now been uncovered.  Not only have I spotted tulips courageously pushing their tips above the ground, but I also found a beautiful dried hydrangea bloom.  Somehow it survived the winter without being crushed by the weight of snow.  I woke one morning to see it being blown by the wind across the front lawn.  So strong, and yet so delicate, its blossoms are sheer with amazing intricacies.  When backlit the bloom shines with the warmth and strength of the sun, and reminds me of other surprises to come in the change from winter to spring.

    All things in spring give us the “spring fever” I think you were caught.
    The delicacy you share is evident. Find more…….

      Yes, spring fever has hit big-time. It’s so nice to find color of any type after the snow & white season! Thanks for your comments Joani.
