They burst forth with a grand HALLELUJAH!
Peeping, then pushing their petals out.
Some early, some later, pinks and whites…
Making a statement before dropping their pieces about.
Hold on sweet petal, please don’t go…
For I know you’ll drop, when the wind does blow.


Down home friends and what they say...

I know you are a Picnik master, but I don’t think these photos have been altered - they seem like the real thing, no editing required! Either that, or you are just really subtle and expert… :-)

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Shawn.

Your pink blooms are so lovely. Our azaleas are at the end of their spring blooms, and I am always sad to see them go.

I’ve looked around your blog, and your Buttercup Farm is just heavenly.
