Ground Sunshine and a Blizzard

I am featuring a bit of the sun at ground level. Blizzard conditions expoded upon us Tuesday, dropping our spirits right along with snow that blew sideways and stuck for several hours. However this leopard's-bane, blooming near a south window lifted us all! The brilliance took my breath away.
Here it is underneath the Forsythia.

The day before the blizzard struck, I'd placed my started plants on the porch in order to begin the 'hardening off' process. This Boothby's Blonde cucumber is already beginning to set blossoms (and has been moved inside again).

Here's a bit of sunshine surrounding my Bleeding Heart.


The 'piece de resistance' was this heart-stopping bouquet on May Day from my dear friend Rachel. She continues that old tradition of leaving a bouquet after ringing the doorbell and racing away. She has different routines and a variety of bouquets for many of us. Who could embrace low spirits after a gift like this? Thank you, Rachel!


TheThe rain pours and the wind blows as this is written. I take heart; my spirits flag not, for tomorrow is another day ( a warm and sunny one perhaps)!

I love this post! It's perfectly lovely and encouraging-- thank you! And we really must remember that SPRING ALWAYS COMES!! Whether we're talking hearts or seasons, it can't stay winter forever! I sure am getting anxious to get my greenhouse into the garden, though.

A blizzard in May?....reminds me of my days on the N. Dak. prairie.
I hope you have enjoyed these last few days of sunshine!
I have lots of plants to set out now, so slowly working on that, as I am able. Tomatoes, peppers, and lots of petunias!

p.s. - Your Boothby's Blonde is going gangbusters....you should be eating your first cuke in no time.

I like all your yellow flowers. Do you know I finally met your lovely grand daughter Isabella? I tried to get a photo of her but she was not very helpful. :-) You know my blog address has changed? I have linked my new site up to yours. The URL is http://mimitabby.com/blog
