Signs of Spring

“The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.” ~  Gertrude S. Wister


The signs of spring are everywhere in the Memorial Garden. For those of you still suffering winter, a few vignettes are shared here with a hope that your spring is on the way.


Yes, no spring is complete without puppies. And last, but not least, a beautiful specimen of the treasured “sugar corculum”.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing the beautiful photos of flowers and Goldens. I spent the weekend in our garden with my human mommy. We are both exhausted . . . but very, very happy!

  2. How beautiful! Thank you for sharing those gorgeous pictures. I would like to know ~~ could I have one of those beautiful puppies??? And the last picture………..just wonderful.

  3. Beautiful! Won’t look like that here for quite a while yet, so appreciate the reminders. I want to hold and hug and kiss every one of those puppies: how sweet! Thank you so much.

  4. Such splendid photographs. I was happily scrolling down, drooling over your gorgeous flowers, and laughed out loud when I saw the puppies! 😀 Your post just brightened my day! What a delight!
