My dear friend GT and I shared a cup of hot tea together this past week, and I got a lovely peek at these beautiful ladies shining their happy faces to the sun in her garden! I simply adore blue flowers, and these hyacinths were such a joy to behold!
Oh the white ones were beautiful too in their virgin white attire!
Ahh pink - be still my heart! Such graceful beauty!
These little violets were peeking their happy heads up through the grass, smiling at the world around us!
I believe these beautiful blue flowers are Muscari aucheri or better known as grape hyacinths! I don't have any of those in my yard, and my heart is yearning for some!
Apparently they multiply very fast, and bring such beauty to the garden!
And of course.... who doesn't just LOVE hydrangeas! Oh my. Simply gorgeous!!!! I had some last year, but the frost got them, as I forgot to cover them one night. I must must must get one of these for my garden!
Oh the incredible beauty of these flowers. My heart was blessed to enjoy the beauty of their gentle faces as the cool spring breeze brushed their fragrance into my heart. Happiness indeed!
This poem just says it all so well! Enjoy :)

So when I looked at those flowers,
I was looking at God
For they bloomed in His sun
and grew in his sod
and each lovely flower
was a "voice from above"
that whispered a message
of kindness and love.
For I feel in my heart,
and I know you do too,
that God speaks to us all
through the kind things we do.
And when I looked at these flowers,
I couldn't help but feel
That they brought Heaven nearer
and made God so real.
