"Spring In Pictures"

~Columbine leaves sprinkled with dew~

~Liquid pearl!

~Here hyacinths of heavenly blue
shook their rich tresses to the morn.

~Bleeding Heart~

~Every flower is a soul blossoming
in nature!
~Gerard De Nervak

Or ...in this case, a soul and a "heart"
blossoming in nature! :)

~The dew,
tis of the tears
which stars weep,
sweet with joy!
