There are not too many vibrant colors blooming today. We did not get enough rain this season for a great bloom. I noticed the poppies will be blooming in a few day. They do not last long but I always enjoy them. I have some lilacs blooming and a few tulips stay. The sage is a nice blue but not want I would call vibrant. It is the time of year to get really busy planting so my days will be full of planting for the next week or two until I get all the vegetables in.
A root, a stem, a leaf, some means of capturing sunlight and air and making food – in sum, a plant. The green substance of this earth, the chlorophyll, is all summed up in the plants. Without them we perish, all of us who are flesh and blood.
