I’m getting excited – one of my favorite seasons will soon be here – SPRING!
Ok truth be told I enjoy Spring, Summer and Autumn almost equally, well Autumn might be a little less on the fav scale but it’s up there compared to Winter! Oh and Winter will soon be over! Yeah!
I think plants celebrate when Spring arrives … maybe that’s why there are so many beautiful Spring flowers.
The Crocus is always the first flower to appear on my property each spring … aren’t they pretty?
Lovely little flowers of purple and yellow that bloom during the day and then close their blooms as night falls.
Another spring flower that I enjoy is the Columbine or Aquilegia. Such pretty ornate flowers.
When I was a kid we’d go up to our cottage almost every weekend from Spring through fall and often in the forest I’d find red flowers that my mother told me were called Honeysuckles. I think they were some form of wild Columbine. I guess that was my first introduction to Aquilegia.
Do you have a favorite Spring flower? Oh and what’s your favorite season .. if you have seasons, that is?
