A little walk down the road

Apple blossoms are opening

My brother's orchard

Violets. They remind me of my Gram, who had violets growing in her lawn.

Spots of color.

Lily-of-the-valley

Periwinkle or Vinca

Wow! Looks like Spring has really arrived at your place, Suki. It'll be another month before our place will look like this. We have little purple wood violets blooming everywhere, though.

Violets always remind me of my mom, and they remind my mom of her mom!

So happy you finally have flowers and sun. May you grow and create from this fresh renewed earth and light.

Suki, how fresh and beautiful your home atop the Mountain is.... the colours of the flowers could only come in Spring.... I can almost smell the sweet scent....

Violets..... I adore them and YOU KNOW how I love Lilies of the Valley. The orchard is dream-like...

Thank you for a lovely morning "walk"......

Love,

♥ Robin ♥

Looks as if Spring has finally made it to your corner of the world. Isn't it wonderful to have no more snow? Such a pretty day for a walk. Loved going with you.
