    {thinking of the people of japan today}

    Daffodils bursting with lemony yellows, pear trees with ornamental flowers in titanium white, red bud trees in pinky-purple, purple plum trees in pastel pink, loropetalum flowing in quinacridone magenta, forsythia overflowing with vivid cadmium yellow. Spring in North Texas.

    Ahh- I so wanted to see spring in Texas . . . we are still in winter but there are some shoots so spring does cometh but for now it is best described as Raw umber and Paynes gray with a few hints of a mixed "plant Green" Thanks for sharing.

    April, Thank you for your kind comments.

    Wendy, I was really struck by this quote too. It was my reaction to the disaster in Japan.

    Carol, I posted these shots in response to your question about spring in texas! I just asked my dad in PA whether he was ready to plant tomatoes and he laughed and said it was 30 degr the other night!

    I'm in Central Oklahoma and the Bradford Pears & Redbuds are all blooming here too. I love it when the wind picks up in late spring & the blossoms are blown off the pear trees. I imagine the trees are all throwing confetti for me.

    Deina, I love your confetti description, I'm going to share that with the kiddos! We're off to a garden to overdose on spring flowers...
