Let's Walk Home From School!

See the violets, deep purple and lavender?
Or would you prefer to stop and be amazed at the red out line around the edges of the yellow tulip?
Crisp daffodils all around seem to sing a dancing song, "Spring is here! Spring is here!"
Irises just ready to burst into bloom wait their turn of springtime glory by the old wooden barrel.
Glamorous tulips all dressed up and all in a row. Alas, they have no where to go! Oh my, white bleeding hearts! I'm not sure I can contain my joy!
Will you follow me home beautiful blooms?
Grape hyacinths, blurry at best, but still willing to show a beautiful blue design!
Tulips so perfectly coordinated in color. How does that happen I wonder?
Phlox, soft and fragile flowers in masses and clumps cover the ground.
Home again!
There is beauty in our own yard too!
Now you go for a walk.
Inhale the fresh air.
Twirl around in the sunshine.
Enjoy your day.
Look for things that bring you joy!
I did!
Love, Rachel

I've never seen the white bleeding heart before. Is it unusual, do you know? Can't wait for my pink bleeding heart to bloom!! Loved all of your pictures. Sally

Glad you are back, missed you! I enjoyed the walk seeing the beautiful flowers, most of them we don't have here in FL, and I still miss them!

One of the sweet memories from my childhood was once when Mother walked to school with me. I treasure that memory! I'm sure your little Princess will too!

Love the flowers and your pics. Indeed, it is hard to stay inside whether the house or car, I would rather be outside :-)
