Sunshine and ‘silver rain’ again today and the garden is really flourishing – all sorts of Narcissi, Fritillaria, Forget-me-nots, Tulips and Armandii.
This kind of Spring Garden also appeals to me.
This delightful poem by Langston Hughes describes today and the rain on Spring flowers just perfectly. It also fits the criteria for this week’s Photo Challenge – “Share a photograph inspired by a favourite poem, verse, story, or song lyric.” The above photos of the Fritillaria and the Tulip with silver raindrops fit the bill. For others in this week’s Challenge, click here. Such a perfect challenge for me this week, a poem and photos – bliss!

I think Spring is the season we all love – where ever we live. And we can’t get enough of it.
