And foliage, and bark, and... :-)

This is the flowering cherry in the front yard in tight bud..

Slowly unfurling and growing lighter....

And now fully open..

Simply gawgeous.
(double click on this last one, it's worth it)

The purple tint to the new bergamot foliage makes my heart go pitter patter, too.

As does this lovely baby..

Nepeta 'Walker's Low'

How can anyone look at all that beauty and not know there is a God? And He is good. :-)

Coming up next, pics of the children's flower garden being made!
