Our World Tuesday: Flowers, Finally

 After a long winter and a spring that has come and gone back to winter in fits and starts, the flowers are finally having the last word.  Even last year's grocery store tulips are making a showing for themselves.
 Then there are the pansies that faced near-freezing tempertures a few nights last week.  Here they are doing what comes naturally.
 Our back, the myrtle made its way through a heavy coat of winter debris.
On Mother's Day, this hibiscus from my sister promised summer with no looking back!  Amen.

  11. High time for Spring and I'm glad you finally got some! Pansies are the bravest little soldiers -- they look so sweet and timid, but they survive so well.
