Everything around us, is beauty.
It started this morning. Our third birds of paradise flower, finally opened up.
I was excited. I have been eyeing it off for weeks now, observing the other two already-open flowers and wondering when this one would decide to grant us with its presence. The 19th day of Spring it was, then.
But then I wanted to capture the rest of the garden…
Even our neighbours’ tree is doing its annual Spring-time blossoming. When that thing blooms in full, watch out. Colour explosion.
I can’t wait.
But the one that made me so, so happy… maybe more so than my bird of paradise, as it is something I have been checking on with more wonder and curiosity than any other flower around us at the moment…
Is my tulips. The very first blossom has begun.
It is here! I am soooo excited! And when they start to bloom even more I can hardly wait to share it with you all.
I must reiterate again (and I probably will, again) that the bulbs lay dormant in a bag in the garage since last Spring/Summer, and I was meant to plant them in Autumn, whereas I forgot and did so in later Winter… I had no idea then if they would even catch.
Well they are getting caught up all right.
As the sun set this evening, I wondered –
‘What beauty would my eye fall upon tomorrow?’
‘What exquisite sight from Mother Nature would we be blessed enough to open and enjoy?’
‘What would she bestow upon us?’
I can’t wait to find out. ♥♥♥♥
