For one minute, walk outside, stand there, in silence, look up at the sky and contemplate how amazing life is.
Such beautiful flowers..will love to have some..
mmm yeah, this time of year is full of good smells....i like the honey suckle in summer when it gets warm....
And they look gorgeous Valerie, only wish I could take in their scent :)
Valerie, those bluebells are stunning and I can smell them from here - HA! I've never seen those flowers before, but they remind me a bit of a hyacinth.Love the roses too!Have a lovely Tuesday!X to you and Joe!
Those are so beautiful! We still had only 36 degrees this morning. Spring is having a really hard time making an appearance this year!
Ranita, I wish I could send you some of our flowers.Brian, yes I like the smell of honeysuckle. Denise, I'd love to be able to bottle the scent and use it after the flowers fade.Ron, since posting this I have collected more bluebells and installed them around the house. The smell .... Oooh the smell is wonderful.Mona, sorry to hear your spring is so late. It's a bit like our so-called summer last year ... it didn't ever seem to arrive.
I haven't been around that kind of bluebell but the camelia I have seen and smelled.
The bluebells are stunning. And...yes...Spring is wonderful and long overdue in these parts. Winter has been brutally cold this year with minus degree temperatures. Currently it's 49 degrees with a cold driving rain. Aside from all that, there are some buds popping out of the ground. Thanks for the lovely pictures.
Beautiful flowers, my tulips are getting ready to bloom.
Springtime is great, but there's something about falling asleep while rain hits the roof above my head that I really love. Maybe I'm more of a winter kinda guy...
What lovely flowers!
Herman, if I had a choice I'd always opt for spring... and then maybe autumn. Never winter though.
BC, I envy you the tulips... I lost all mine a couple of years back and never replaced them.
Larry, our bluebells are definitely different... but they're lovely and smell divine.
Hello Pam. Nice to see you and thanks for your comment. I have read about your severe winters. For once ours was not too bad. I think others had our share. We had lots of floods but not where I live... fortunately.
Bluebells have such a special smell don't they. Your post suddenly brought it to mind. It made me think that they are so early this year and for various reasons I have not managed to get out into the woods to see them in real life. I hope I manage to do it before they fade! Th
I used to pick bluebells for my birt mother. My sister reminded me of how I'd bring home the wilted bouquet. LOL. Yous are lovely.
