A Southern Spring With a Spalsh of Color

The Bradford Pears are already in white bloom and developing leaves in sunnier locations. Forsythia's are burning bright yellow. Weeping Willows show sashes of moss green. Violets shine their faces with splashes of purple. Color is everywhere, color is God's way of telling us that life is coming back.

Even rust from a chicken plant holder looks beautiful.

For the past couple weeks the Daffodils have been popping up like the grass is. In the mountains we mainly have an old strain of yellow Daffodils; but, I planted these to mix the landscape up.

A Daylily planted in a toilet, yes a toilet. The bowl make up the lower planter and the water reservoir makes up the upper planter. It may seem trashy; but, it makes a fun talking piece.

I purchased this wind chime last Spring at an art festival. Glass chimes are prettier and lovely sounding.

The glass makes a beautiful chime, the color is an added bonus.

I hope Spring comes to all of you soon, if it hasn't already.
