April showers . .April flowers

Tell me the truth. .

is there any prettier time of year?

Is there anything better than breathing in the "real" scent of lilacs while capturing a rainbow against a dark stormy sky?

Taking pictures against the blue skies is my favorite .. .

or is it the dark stormy skies?

The verdict is still out on that question.

I wonder . .. is God pleased when we keep our tiny patches on the globe trimmed and clean?

I'm pretty sure. .

this is my favorite time of year.

How many times have I shown you the raspberries across the road?

I'm pretty sure. . .

when you least expect it. .

you'll see them one more time. .

or maybe two .. or three . .or . .

All for now . .

  2. The scent of lilacs IS spring to so many people! We used to drive up to the San Diego back hills to buy big jugs of mountain lilacs from a man who grew them on his acres. Wandering through his lilac trees of so many colors was a heady experience. Thanks for jogging that memory for me.

    Watching snow falling heavily as I type...

  3. Absolutely beautiful, Lovella. I would imagine that God is pleased when we practice good stewardship with that which is in our care.

    I do miss the scent of lilacs and other flowering shrubs and plants.

  4. I love the scent of lilacs. I don't have a bush but I think I'll plant one this year. Our tulips are just about to open. Lilacs will be a while yet - but everything is early this year. I'm loving it!

    Oh dear - snow - my sympathies Jill.

  6. Beautiful snapshots of spring, Lovella!

    Your new spring header looks great. I'm wondering how you did that...

  7. And I have to say that I love taking care of God's creations...even the little row of raspberries that we have. The other day, I put mushroom compost around them...doing anything to make them flourish...and of course let those little grands come by and pick them.
    Great photos and great reflections.
