What a week!

With the capture and end of our lockdown came the rain as if right on cue.  The rain felt like the perfect end to a horrible week.  It washed away the anxiety of our city.  But once our own safety is taken care of, it was hard not to refocus on the others that are left hurting.

Here are some flowers for those people.

Vinca for the victims of the bombings and policemen killed and injured in the apprehension
of the terrorists.  My thoughts and prayers are with them, their families and friends.

Nothing is blooming in the garden right now so these few blooms are very precious.

Tulips for Texas whose tragedy seemed to take a back seat to the events in Boston.

White Ranunculus for Biscuit.  

I hope these flowers will be some relief or joy to anyone needing it.

Spring has come very late, like it was waiting for something.  Perhaps for our undivided attention.

And it seems especially sweet this year.

Take a moment to enjoy other spring flowers at Janes' Flowers in the House party.
