For those of us who have made it through a long cold winter, the first day of Spring is something we have been waiting for! I went outside looking for something that would help me to celebrate the equinox. I found a ladybug sitting on a purple hyacinth in the sun. I also noticed a seed had settled itself on the edge of the flower. New starts to welcome this Spring day!
Being sick with the flu, my husband surprised me with a beautiful camellia shrub which he will plant after the ground thaws. Knowing that this will blossom before Spring, I have been waiting anxiously for the first blossom. I was surprised when I looked out the window this morning to see the first flower. It is such a beautiful color to brighten this winter morning. This is right out of the camera. No editing required with perfection! Spring will be here soon.
Refilling the vase with water, I set the flowers on the countertop. I liked the composition.
