Opening Up

Surprise! This is what that sweet little bud turned into this past week. It's pretty amazing that a blossom that big can open up from such a tiny beginning. I love that the petals are even still wrinkled, hinting that it's still coming into it's own. It gives me hope for a brilliantly beautiful tomorrow!

"Let us cherish the beauty which surrounds us"

Sometimes benches are not only well placed, but they have great quotes posted on them. So it gives you something to think about while you sit. I especially like this one.

And I especially like all the beauty that surrounds me right now!

This last one is my favorite. I don't know yet what it will look like, exactly what shade it will be, or how big it will bloom, but I think that's what I like about it. It holds the promise of Spring: Potential. New Birth. Beauty surrounding us. And it starts out tucked away, deep inside.
