Dandelions, Tulips and the Promise of Lilacs...

"What a nice day. What a nice universe." - Flemming Funch

"Outside my window a Jackson Pollock riot of yellow spattered dandelions
transforms the plain green canvas into a giant painting underfoot.
And the landscape is alive as the
miniature suns open their
intricate and shining hearts to the sky." -
My Name is ZING

The yellow tulips opened and
the magnolia petals started to fall
litterering the ground like confetti.

Seemingly overnight, the blooms have begun to appear
decorating the lilac bush outside of my window.
Soon their heady scent will fill the air. . .

"Whisper 'I love you' 'I love you' to the whole mad world." - Hafiz

I hope your week has been a good one. x

I so envy you the blossoms, but especially the lilacs. That scent means something deep inside of me is awakening, coming to fruition.

Love the images and your words and congratulations,

Spring is hurtling towards summer - isn't it wonderful? One of our lilacs has masses of flowers ready to open. The other has nothing . . .
