When I got home from work yesterday, I looked outside and saw my neighbor's little yellow roses blooming. I don't know when that happend but I'm glad I didn't miss it. Everything is blooming right now and the fact that we've had a lot more rain than usual should mean there will be plenty of May flowers, right?
Last year, I had very few iris bloom but people tell me it's not unusual for that to happen some years. I hope they bloom soon ... I love them.
I had to lay down on the concrete sidewalk in our back yard this morning to get this shot. These flowers are really tiny and I don't believe I've ever looked at them from this angle but I just love the little "stims" inside. I know there is a proper science name for that but all I really care to know is that these bloom every year and their color really makes me happy. While I was down on the ground (thank goodness we have a fence or my neighbors might think they are living next to a crazy lady) I noticed the reflection of the blooming tree in my window.
And the blue sky. While I rarely future-trip, I am so ready for it to be Friday, 5:00 p.m. I want to be outside.
I hope wherever you are, that you take the time to really see what's around you. There's beauty everywhere ...
A tree against the sky possesses the same interest, the same character, the same expression as the figure of a human. ~ Georges Rouault
