Springtime in the Lowcountry

It's springtime in the Lowcountry with soft breezes wafting over the marshes...
while the rays of an early morning sun shine forth...
as dew drips from the tips of newly formed leaves.
Velvety petals,
in abundance from an ancient rose bush.
Rose buds framed by the prickly leaves of a sega palm.
Glowing petals stretch toward the bluest of spring skies.
Cotton like flowers stand out against bold azalea bushes...
while birds prepare their nests.
Soft lavender petals...
speckled azalea flowers...
soak in the suns warming rays.
As springtime takes hold early bloomers make their appearence.
Stay tuned for more blooms!
These flowers are for you Cathy:)!

Oh what a lovely site....such beautiful florals you have.

However, the lowlands always would make me think of mosquitoes...do you have a problem with them there ?

Oh Kim, these blossoms are magnificent and match your lovely pink gown that you wore to my birthday ball! Thank you dearest one, for coming to visit with me! I do my best to visit everyone, but it is hard when you only have one computer and the both of us being teachers/writers!!! Blessings to you and PRAISE GOD for His blessings! Anita
