Surprises in Bloom



            Today, our yard is full of surprises.  Almost unnoticed under a spreading maple tree, a wild purple violet peeks.


At the base of a mock orange shrub, a swath of white and blue forget-me-nots sways in the breeze.



At the edge of an unweeded front pathway, slender stalks of white violets grow in random patches.



Hanging onto grout that needs repair, half-way up the chimney, a tenacious dandelion blooms.  I wonder what colourful extravagance will appear in our yard tomorrow.

These four photos are mine.

The dandelion on the chimney is a hoot! Love that!
