Hyacinth

The Walmart tag says the plant was grown by NMG in Grand Rapids, MI. I found the site: NMG. “Neal Mast Greenhouses”

On Saturday, I went to Walmart with Karl. We put our face masks on in the car/parking lot, and the plants outside caught my attention right away. Greeters sit near the door and hand sanitizer. Clean, room to shop, and a good atmosphere.

This is the first time I used the camera in awhile. Good to practice again.

Inspiration: Snowdrops

What a good year for the snowdrops. They grow and endure, and return each year. The first flowers in our yard. They picture a kind word, a small poem, everyday blessings. A post in my Reader, a devotional book from a thrift store, and a small plant by the window. I do not know when they first grew and bloomed in the gardens, and we have been here a long time.

APRIL

April is National Poetry Month – 25 years!

April in Wisconsin
on opposite sides
of the patio door
the red poinsettia
and red cardinal

2012

years on the roads
pass through my mind
returning home
and in the yard
first tulip leaves

2013

beginning
in the area
where we had
to take a tree down
new peony leaves

2014

colorful tulips
on a cold day
unconditional love

2015

Lake Michigan – Easter 2017

snow melting
from evergreen branches
Easter lily by a sunny window
Poinsettia too
all part of one story

April 2019

grey sky
mourning dove
on a birch tree branch

time with the Psalms
a dove on the branch
pictures a poem
