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.
This is my Clematis that my friend Jody gave me two years ago
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)
