The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land… Arise, come my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.
–Song of Solomon 2:10-13
Lookie here: I’ve made a springtime tussy-mussy just for you! A few blooms are from my own garden; the rest, I collected on a stroll around Balboa Island after a romantic sunset dinner in Newport Beach. Their natural beauty outshines my amateurish photography, thank goodness. And what better harbinger of spring than a hummingbird feasting on lavender nectar?
I invite you to post some pictures of springtime in your area. But if Old Man Winter’s still got his icy grip on your garden, well then, we’ll create our own warmth and sunshine! I say we call this an official day of rest from the cares of the world. Come with me, come outside to play!
