Spring Flowers

With all the grey, dreary weather we’ve been having recently I thought I would take a moment to remind everyone that April showers really do bring May flowers.

I love, love, love flowers and over the past few years have taken a strange interest in arranging them- to the point where I thought to myself if I ever have some free time I would take a flower-arranging class. (I realize that I am seventy-five years old.)

So even though it might be a little too early for those May flowers, here are some other ones to brighten up your day. (Excuse all the bad photos. They get better as the post goes on, I swear.
