Open Lotus Garden Peony Closed

The peonies are opening up and are as decadent and ruffly as an 18th century french lady's underskirts.

Open Lotus Garden Mock Orange

Sweet mock orange.

Spring has a way of sending the human senses into a drunken delight, don’t you think? After a season of cold, short days and frozen ground, spring breathes life back into us with its new green, explosion of colors, sun-warmth, sweet pollen and nectar.  Our hemisphere is, at long last, tilted back toward the sun again, and life begins anew.  The bees, too, seem to be in a bit of a delighted frenzy over it.  I don’t blame them.  In Open Lotus Garden, there is surely no shortage of nature’s beauty to swoon over.  What’s your favorite spring garden intoxication?
