Christ is Risen! I suppose almost everyone associates Spring flowers with Easter as they give us new joy and hope after a long dreary winter. Up here we don't always have flowers by this time, but I'm excited to say that this year we do! (We are supposed to get a couple inches of snow tomorrow, though). These are Species crocuses, which are a lot smaller than the Dutch, but they bloom even earlier, so who cares?
Music is as much a part of my life as gardening, and I just had to share this beautiful Piano Concerto by Tchaikovsky here. The first 3 minutes of it are especially moving, and I always think of Spring and flowers when I hear it...
I am a passionate gardener and seed-saver, who also enjoys playing the violin and accordion, running, spending time with my 4 golden retrievers, keeping chickens, photography, and reading. I also blog for Heirloom Gardener.
