Beautiful Blooms -A Top Ten Tuesday List

Top Ten Tuesday

“The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.”                          –Gertrude S. Wister

After nature’s monotone of the winter months, blurbs of bright colors in the landscape are a welcome sight. It is easy to feel joyous and inspired when the first blossoms of spring appear. It seems fitting to celebrate the flowers that announce the arrival of spring, as well as some of those that make their appearance a bit later.  Today’s Top Ten Tuesday list celebrates some beautiful flowers.

  1. Daffodil
  2. Grape hyacinths
  3. Peach blossom
  4. Tulips
  5. Cherry blossom
  6. Pansy
  7. Lily
  8. Lily of the valley
  9. Iris
  10. Morning Glory

I am always amazed by the wildly varied shapes, colors and textures found in nature. I marvel how flowers have their own personalities mimicking  human traits: bright and showy, complex, stately, demure, withdrawn, fragile, powerful, to name just a few.

What are your favorite early season flowers?  What flower matches your personality?

Flowers of spring, another thread of my life.
