Finally... my little world has seen an explosion of flowers... 

Roses are opening everywhere!

Which one is my favorite... which to pick which to enjoy the more?  For myself I hold no preferences among roses, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous.

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay, "Afternoon on a Hill"

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. ~Iris Murdoch, A Fairly Honourable Defeat

 A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in--what more can one ask?  

The garden laughs in flowers, and beyond it... 
the dark, supple, wonderful enchanting woods...

Some of the wild 'yellow flowers' dwellers of the woods beyond the garden peeking through...
hi, hello there!

Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slept in the seeming death but at the right time God awakened us, and here we are to comfort you. ~Edward Payson Rod

"...Deborah made for the trees fringing the lawn... 

...and once in the shrouded wood felt herself safe.  
It was very quiet. The woods were made for secrecy. 
They did not recognize her as the garden did."  –Daphne du Maurier.

While in the woods this morning, I picked a special bouquet from the soul of the wild...
For Lady of the Woods, Jacqui, Sherry, and Gayla
Dear, wise women who may not know they're angels
I followed what you said:    
"Hold on to your heart and life will give you wings.” 

Thank you... thank you...
