change of heart


pink . not an all time favorite . yet this one brings a change of heart 

 encouraged by the brazen blooming in early spring

aapink


warm gentle emerging of each bud arising from royal deep purple leaves 


  abstract blooms the norm . in all directions 

not caring much who might see the swaying in the breeze

 aa1


coaxing a nod amid shadowy curves  against the gray bricks of home 


 aaapink



 now leaning against the subtle bark of the oak . among the browns and green of life 

 a bright pink fills my garden and my heart . spring is like that
 
a pink

Oh yes I love these flowers. I remember once writing in my blog that they remind me of party time, they look streamers at a party parade. I am so happy to see spring coming alive in your garden.

These are so full of hope.

There is a bush that blossoms with pink flowers in very early spring (Jan or Feb). I love watching for the flower petals to fall on the ground because it reminds me that spring is near, even if it doesn't feel like that at all.

I think of you often with love. I hope you are surrounded by love and comfort this month. xo
