Spring has Sprung in Seattle

Restore your light, O excellent chief

to your country; for it is like spring

Where your countenance has appeared;

To the people the day passes more pleasantly,

And the sun shines more brightly.

Horace, Odes, bk. 4, 5, 5.

My first Spring blooms have appeared in my yard in Washington

This is my Lenten Rose~ Helleborus

Click on Lenten Rose (above) to learn more about this popular plant.

My friend Beth gave it to me for my birthday last year.

The amazing thing is that these plants are still alive.

This too is only by the grace of God.

My Camellias which look so nice in a bowl with water and floating candles.

My Lilies that my friend Jan gave me won’t bloom for a bit.

Thank you ladies for adding a bit of your gardening pleasures to my brown thumb yard!

And thank you Lord for keeping these beauties alive. (The plants and my friends)

  1. Pleased to meet you. You have a lovely, thoughtful blog! AND I assume you live in the Pacific Northwest. (We do too.) I enjoyed your posts about your Russian family heritage. I’d never heard of the Molokans before. Have a blessed weekend. Hugs, e-Mom

  2. Hi e-mom,
    Yep, if you read my profile you’ll find out how convoluted my life is right now. I live in the Pacific Northwest and Southern California. Thanks for visiting and commenting. Blessings to you.

    Hi Kim,
    Hope Spring makes a full appearance in the Chicago area soon!
