THE MEMORY OF FLOWERS – Marilyn Armstrong

APRIL 28 – FOTD – MEMORY OF SPRING FLOWERS

It was raining all last night and today, but without the hurricane-force winds. Every single bone in my body hurts. When I stand up and move it’s like a tympanic symphony in there. Crunching and snapping, crackling, and popping.

Surprisingly, we DO have flowers. In the middle of the woods, there is a little grove of Magnolia trees that are blooming. If it would stop raining for a few hours, I could get some pictures. Even without the pictures (not only was it raining, but it was cold!), I was glad to see something other than Forsythia and Crocus.

Columbine, more

Because none of the Columbine are blooming. Not even Solomon’s Seal is in bloom. And don’t even think about the Lilacs. Actually, I take that back. It probably is blooming, but it’s so far up in the tree, I need my very long lane to even see the flowers — IF I can see them.

Outside, it’s just dark and rainy, windy, muddy, and cold — with snow further north.

  2. We had our first rain in over 7 weeks, and it’s thankfully a gentle rain which can actually enter the parched soil…. your blooms are beautiful even if they might be suffering from the downpour. They sure need it.

  6. If it’s the end of April, can summer be far behind? It was 90 here over the weekend, and about 80 today!
