Gloomy Cold Day

Blooms To Brighten The Day!

This winter seems especially gloomy and cold. To brighten the day I'm sharing this cheerful, sunny photograph I took at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens last Spring. I love to go to the gardens in April and May when all the spring flowers are in bloom.

I've been a fan of botanical gardens ever since my professor in Botany gave us an assignment to visit and write a report on our experience.

"Awake, thou wintry earth-
Fling off thy sadness.
Fair vernal flowers,
laugh forth Your ancient gladness!"
-Thomas Blackburn, Source: An Easter Hymn
