"I have many beautiful flowers," he said; "but the children are the most beautiful flowers of all." ~Oscar Wilde
A quick escape this morning lead us to Spring! We had know idea it was hiding out around the corner, but here it was- caught in full bloom.
For a girl that is used to seeing plenty of brown dirt, brown ice, brown bare branches and hmmm... a little more brown...yellow was delicious.
Wading in icy snow melt- we take what we can get around here. Or as Mr. Middle would say "ya get what ya get and ya don't throw a fit". I love that... may steal it.
The gentlemen examining the best route for a crossing...
and how could we possibly play in the water without catching something disgusting?
... and building them a lovely new home
My Sweet Pea
Do you see the Springness? There is even a little hidden Springness in the left corner.
Ahhhhh.... I love color. And this pink was so vivid amongst the dead.
Sis playing doctor. This little thing is a mama to the core. I think if she were the oldest her poor brothers would be terrified or maybe traumatized?
And the grand finale...
aren't these the most gorgeous blooms ever??? I had to save the best for last.
Happy Springtime friends!!
