the blooms of spring

i snapped this pic today, as i came home from work ... i love being greeted by "smiling" flowers! today is my Friday ... i just wanted to say "hi" ... *smile* ...

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. ~Audra Foveo

NOw that's a wonderful smile to come home to!

Jeanette said...

Smiling flowers are the best. You finally got your springtime. :)

Terry said...

They sure are smiling alright Saija!!
And I am smiling too because I see that Jeanette has been around.

I just love the way this blogger beta lets you go to another site and you don't lose the comment section on the one you are on first!

I just swung around to say hi to Jeanette because I have to go out and pick up my aunt in five minutes.

Are these flowers Impatience?
We haven't planted ours yet.
That is the only kind we plant.
We just put them everywhere...all different colors and they last well into the fall.

Well I am off Saija...Have a happy Friday, eh?...Friday?...Love Terry

PS Why should I have to put in a lot of different flowers anyways when I can just go to Sabine's, or Jeanette's or Pilot Mom, Maggie-ann, etc. etc. etc. and look at their nice flowers and enjoy them??
Your Manitoba flowere too of course Saija!!

Saija said...

jeanette ... yes, we have been ENJOYING it! and soon i hope to enjoy it even more ... *huge grin*

terry ... um, i forget the name of these flowers! i am so bad - then if i do know the name, i most likely can't spell it! hope you had a good good visit with your aunt!
