Wordless Wednesday: Flower Therapy

Andy and I have spent a good part of the last couple days racing winter storm warnings. (The snow missed us, which makes me so oh-so-not-very sad.) Despite my optimism about impending spring on Monday, lately it's been blustery and cold. Lake Superior's in its second day of  turquoise-hued turmoil. Looks like we're getting a preview of April's "cruelest month" qualities!

To compensate for the wind and grey, I thought we'd celebrate our own little festival of colors here on Of Woods and Words and post some of my favorite spring flower shots from years past. What's your favorite springtime flower? Me? I can hardly wait for lilacs!

  1. beautiful photos.

    Daffodils always make me think of my dad (when I was little he would pretend to have secret conversations with the ones that grew in our yard).
    To this day whenever I see one I want to lean over and give a listen...
