Unfortunately, this scheduled post never published when it was supposed to on March 19th. Good thing because it seems appropriate with Easter to post it now. I’ve changed some wording to put it in current context.
Spring is here! Already I hear birds chirping and see flowers popping up everywhere, in fashion that is.
Look at these gorgeous floral dresses and you can see a celebration of spring as well as beautiful artistic, flowery design.
With the wild winter weather we’ve had, I wouldn’t be surprised if there might even be one more snowstorm [back in March]. However, this picture below shows the dichotomy in the window dressing, announcing spring with snow falling.
And why not? Spring is the perfect time to celebrate the flower’s power of simple yet pretty petals, especially when they can form such kaleidoscope of color, as seen from above in this Dutch landscape of Keukenhof Gardens.
We actually visited these gardens in Holland. It just happened to be right before most of the flowers were blooming.Bright, vibrant colors are not only prevalent in flowers but also in DC’s newest Marion Barry Mural. I think it’s a pretty good likeness and I like how it is portable, being painted on removable tiles that can be transported and installed in different locations.Getting back to celebrating spring with flowers, there is a new DCGardens.com website that shows what are the latest blooming varieties in the DC area and where to find them.
It already highlights one of my favorite plant places, the National Arboretum.
It’s interesting for me to go back and read these previously written, related posts after so much time:
And this time, I know now how to post a video (and even center it).
Happy Spring & Happy Easter!
