Daydreaming of Spring

I know that if odour were visible, as colour is,
I'd see the summer garden in rainbow clouds.

Robert Bridges

These days I am quite tired due to my pregnancy 
and I spend my days daydreaming about the spring.

I am longing to go out in the garden again 
and to feel the sun and earth on my face and hands.

I was looking at some old pictures of last summer 
and saw these photos of my mother in law's beautiful and inspiring garden.

She was picking a lovely bouquet of flowers that day 
and since that summer I am dreaming of a flower garden too.

So here I am on the couch this afternoon 
with a huge pile of library books about gardening,
and enough ideas and plans to fill 10 gardens!

And although it snows again overhere, 
in my mind the flowers are already growing.

I could just fall into that picture of daisies!!! Hurry spring!
I remember how exhausted I was in early pregnancy....just think when Spring gets here you will be blooming as well....
Thanks for photo's from your gifted gardner of a mother in law.
luv and hugs, Missy from the bayou

Such awesome photos, Sas. Spring rushed in overnight ... quickly followed by the oppressive heat of summer in my city...all in the span of two weeks. So, all my tall plans of gardening are over :( ....Hope spring arrives soon at your place and stays longer. Hugs,

You are such a good artist and you make your baby an artist too, because our children feel what we see and what we think during our pregnancy, I find it wonderful.
