Today, an eye-popping array of flowering quince together with yellow forsythia greeted me as I rode down a country road toward my home . Together they have a spread of about twenty-five feet and a height of about ten feet -- one cannot miss their beauty. Early every spring I look forward to this huge rather wild showcase of spring blooming shrubs. They never fail to perform.
My hyacinths were waiting for me when I got home. They are at their peak right now in my yard. With all the blooming, a robin egg blue sky and the temperatures in the high 60s, how could I not wear a smile most of the day.
For those of you that don't have any spring blooms in your yard may I suggest buying some pansies at your local nursery and planting them in some kind of container. Place the arrangement by your an entrance door that you use the most. The smiling pansy faces will make you smile reminding you that spring is again upon us.
The circle of life continues.
