Remnant Jostle Fragrance

Last year’s pansy patch was alive with movement.  The little monkey-faced flowers were jostling for a place to bloom.  Soon the pansies would be joined by jonquils, narcissus and tulips.  Fragrance would waft on the spring time air and announce to all and sundry that the season of flamboyant growth was upon them.


These were the remnants of last summer’s beauty.  Their sleeping done, they would now return to spread their patchwork splendor over the flower beds.

      Thank you, friends,
      Perhaps I chose Spring because it came so early here in Indiana this year. The magnificent magnolia tree outside my office window has bloomed and gone as have the spring flowers. But in Spring there are always more to take their place.
