Why Create a Garden if You Don’t …

…take in the spring blossoms. Spring is such a lovely season especially when so much transformation occurs in a short span of time. The unfortunate thing – if your eyes are closed to it all. Yep, you bet. You just missed it. So in all the spring excitement, let’s revert back to last Tuesday’s post, where I shared my love for a spectacular Yak Rhododendron variety called ‘Mardi Gras.’ One of the dynamite features mentioned about this shrub was its “bright pink flowers that fade to white; perfect as a blossom-filler for early to mid-May.” So if you’re catching moments of the spring garden on the run, here’s hoping this transforming blossom of ‘Mardi Gras’ gives you reason to say,  “Tuesday mornings in spring…a perfect reason for a flower break.”

While it’s time to call this post a wrap, let’s hope Mary Anne Radmacher’s quote resonates with today’s message. “Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.”  So if not today, make time tomorrow for spring’s transformation. Otherwise, why create a garden if you don’t make time for a flower break?

Don’t forget to check out the Pinterest page where a new board, ‘What’s in Bloom’ has been added for spring moments exactly like this.
