From the Heart Comes Spring

Persian Lilac/Syringa x persica

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:  when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.  ~Charles Dickens

Weeping Cherry/Prunus pendula
I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.  ~Ruth Stout

Narcissus 'Bell Song'

Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart. 
Victor Hugo

Narcissus 'Ice Follies'

Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.
W. Earl Hall

Twisted Trillium

Where flowers bloom so does hope.
- Lady Bird Johnson

Trillium stamineum

I think my favorite ephemeral is the trillium. I find its mottled leaves are so pretty against the leaf litter.


  1. That Narcissus 'Bell Song' is very pretty. Love that delicate pink color.

  2. Hi,

    I wanted to email you in regards in any possible advertising opportunities you may have with your website. I'm looking to earn support for a national cause and get visibility for the "plant 1 billion trees" project. Let me know if you would be interested at all in supporting this cause or if you want more information on it. I look forward to talking to you soon!

  3. Great quotes and great spring flowers. My favorite quote is the one about a sunny spring day being the best tranquilizing agent. How true!

  4. I'd rather pay for flowers than a shrink. :D

  5. Hi Donna, Spring has certainly arrived in style in Tennessee. Your weeping cherry is absolutely beautiful.

  6. It's young but makes a good show. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. Trillium reminds me of a frog in a way. Nature mocking nature…

  8. That is an interesting perspective.

  9. The drooping cherries are so beautiful in shades of pale pink and the narcissus too. The trillium leaves would remind me of army fatiques.
