Flowers, Summer, and Sun

As the Springtime progresses, I have been enjoying the progression of flowers in my yard. From the crocus and daffodils, to the tulips and azaleas each all-to-short period has brought enjoyment to the continual progression of the season as the distance from winter increases and the expected summertime approaches.

Memorial Day is coming in just over a week and with it the unofficial beginning of the summer season. Graduations, the end of school, and vacations highlight the beginning of the season of enjoyment and sunshine.

I can almost smell the fresh ocean water crashing onto a hot, sunny beach.

I was reminded about all of this as I parked my truck next to me ornamental honeysuckle yesterday and noticed that is was in full bloom. This springtime must be very good for it because it is blooming stronger than it has in many years. 

It is a lot of fun to watch the progression of the springtime with the flowers and the leaves.
