#LENT: Springy, Flowery HOPE!

“Hold fast to hope, the fragile flowers shout.” Mary Lou Kownacki

Yesterday was the first day of Spring here in this part of the world. After all those stark winter days, spring sightings of trees budding and flowers blooming are signs of hope for this flower-&-tree groupie redhead.

Trees and plants have been empty of leaves all winter, but every year they endure the challenge of bleak barrenness to bloom again in spring.

Today in honor of Spring here are blooms of flowery hope to encourage our hearts.

      Spring is sputtering along here. It’s encouraging in the current context to see a bright flowering tree amidst a bunch of bare trees. Blessings & Hope! 🍃✨🌸✨🍃

    Wow, Spring in your area is so far ahead of Spring here! Thanks for sharing it — your flowers are gorgeous!

      Actually, Debbie, we’re mostly stuck @ 🏠, so these pics came from previous Garden visits. Our Japanese cherry tree bloomed last week, though- a beautiful sight. There are lots of redbud, white pear blossoms, purple flowering trees (not sure name) & yellow bushes popping up all over. Blessings & flowery hope! ✨🍃🌸✨🍃
