Tis the Season...



The colors of nature always amaze me...they just can't be duplicated.

The sun finally decided to show today and the temps are reaching 40s. As this is the season for rebirth, I couldn't help but take a walk to the local nursery, Harvest Gardens. A family owned business that gives each and every plant personal attention. People come from many states around just to purchase their plants. They aren't open for business yet as spring has just arrived...it is ND after all.

I snapped a few photos of my favorite flowers. Purple, pink and white happen to be the colors of the Suffrage Movement throughout Europe and the US. How appropriate for the Easter!

The head planter, one of my P.E.O. sisters, and me (scrambled egg glasses!).

My hat's off to the beauty of nature!

Here here! I can hardly wait until the flowers start blooming in my neck of the woods. We had a few timid blooms last week, but then it snowed :(
I think i'll head to the greenhouses at the botanical gardens this weekend! Thanks for the idea!

Gorgeous, both you and the flowers. I love to go to the nursery. I always feel guilty bringing the little lovelies home though, as I always manage to kill them! Maybe this year my green thumb will come in.

Oh what a wonderful picture of you - you are as beautiful as the flowers!!!!
When I paint flowers, the real think is so vibrant - sometimes it's hard to use those amazing bright colors - they seem unreal!! I do love the pansies - amazing colors!!! I so enjoy the nursery, could spend hours just looking and smelling!!!
