Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
The forsythia seemed to be the only sunshine as I watched the sky on this day of April showers.
I find a sense of security in the burst of color from garden perennials. I rely on the plants that green up and blossom with the warmth of the springtime sun. They give me hope that winter is truly behind us.
I planted dozens of daffodils in the Autumn. Even against an angry sky they glow.
This pale yellow hyacinth might not have strong color, but it still has the same glorious scent as the varieties that sport brighter hues. This hyacinth is my choice for Flower of the Day.
Rounding out my collection of yellow flowers are these sweet Johnny-Jump-Ups.
