This week’s share:
Winter is finally behind us!
I do love winter, but spring is a special time too. I have high gratitude for all the beautiful blossoms and a fresh start.
I thought I’d just do a quick Flower Friday today sharing some spring blooms we’ve been enjoying.

It’s been such a strange spring–cold, yet we’ve had some stray high 80 degree days. The winter rose is still in bloom which is so weird. It usually blooms late February to March but it bloomed in April this year.
It’s still hanging on and how lovely having it bloom for such a long period.
This has to be my favorite spring bloom. Everything smells do delightful outside and with the windows open, the whole house smells like lilacs. Luckily, we haven’t had any late frosts and they’re blooming beautifully right now.
One of the earliest blooms outside is the daffodil. These weren’t favorites for the longest time, but now I look forward to seeing them in spring.
I’ve shared yellow in the past, but these here are my favorite color. They bloomed in April.
It’s such a busy time trying to get the garden in and all the other outdoor work done. Hopefully I’ll have some interesting flowers to share this summer. I do hope to be back to blogging and writing book reviews soon. I’m still reading but mostly with the kids. Everything is going well here. I hope you’re all doing well too and that we can chat soon. 🙂
What spring blooms are you enjoying right now? Growing anything interesting this year? Feel free to share!
