Things Are Blooming Around Here.

When I think about how cold winter is here I'm always relieved to see my flowers blooming again come summer.  It truly is a miracle how they manage to survive the winter.
There are five kinds of roses growing there.
These white ones are my favourite because they have such a lovely fragrance.
The tiger lilies came from my Mother in law's garden many years ago.
The yellow day lilies are just starting to bloom.
And this sweet pea is really blooming.

That would be "your" future grandchild.

Flowers are miraculous, really.

As are babies. I'm sure a scientific rationalist will shoot me down for saying that, but I still get teary thinking about the amazingness (that's a technical word) of new birth.

Can't wait to see your new grandson. I wonder if he comes with glasses?

I'm amazed that anything can return to life after being blanketed in snow. Nature is such a wonder; and despite having two children, still think it's amazing we can make a baby. It's incredible! Lovely belly shot.

Awwww, a baby bump! It is amazing that things actually bloom after winter's torture. Thank God we get a reprieve from the snow and cold.
