When I walked outside this morning there was a chorus of
"HEY, over here"
"Psst look at me " 

Each corner of the garden displaying color
that was absent just two days prior.
All the pinks, yellows and purples,
missing since late fall, now awake and shouting.

Reaching to be higher, fuller and brighter than all the rest.
Vines, Annuals, Perennials, no matter, all clamoring for attention.
The Prim and Proper gossiping
about the lowly Mock Orange

But even she is showing off her new babies,
her buds of growth with pride.
Makes it hard for a gal to hear herself think.
HEY GUYS! Keep it down would ya?

There isn't even a hint of green here...anywhere! I might stick my head out and see if I can hear your flowers all the way in Nebraska! (we did hear an incredibly loud and huge flock of geese yesterday!)

Enjoy your color and sunshine for me. What are the temps there right now?

How wonderful to actually have all that color outside....I did see some brillant green moss peeking out from under the brown leaves...so it won't be long before the violets start to pop up. =)
