it is one oclock




blog



at a smooth wooden table as I ponder

the list filled with "should accomplish" and "must do"

while fresh blooms with leaves of purple wave outside the window

suddenly watering . sunshine . camera . move to the top of the must do list

Three times is amazing.
And I would be equally distracted.
As I am by the snow and hail yet again today, after yesterday's almost spring . soon I hope, soon.

The flower I have that looks like that I think of my celebration flower because it looks like cheer leaders pom poms. Mine however only flowers once per year. Have a lovely celebration.

I spent 10 minutes out on my balcony this morning talking to and happily watching the seedlings growing after some warm weather followed by spring rain. Many other things I should have been doing, but watching spring come seemed the most appropriate choice.

Tracy said...

The Plum Delight IS a delight! :o) I've not seen this before... gorgeous purple color! Very easy to see why flowers went to the top of your list... ;o) Finding signs of spring are tops on my list just now too--the snow is melting at last! Happy Day, Elk ((HUGS))
