Breathless

Camellia, white plum, grape hyacinth, snowdrop

Oh, Spring - your beauty takes my breath away.  So do the allergies that you shepherd. Maybe someday my body will learn that these foreign particles floating in the air are harmless.  Nonetheless, I am a faithful lover and will continue to adore you with fervor.  I will go for long walks in the pollen-heavy breeze just to be in your presence.

Photo by the DH, dear hubby.  If I were getting married today, this is the bouquet I would chose. Picked with my sweetheart on an early spring walk.

What a simple, elegant and perfect spring arrangement. We don't get camellias where I live.

The early spring flowers are indeed breathe taking. They just make me smile.

Beautiful! I recognize your tunic, what a nice backdrop for the flower.

I love seeing these harbingers of spring! (So glad my allergies, if I *must* have them, hit in the fall, not spring.)
