"Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer."

'Kaleidoscope Trillium'

Hello Joey,

Gosh, what an extraordinary view of a Trillium. It looks just like what one might see in a kaleidoscope and one feels like turning it around and around to get a different pattern.

Oh how we tried and tried to grow Trilliums in our gardening days all without much success. They seem to us such exotic creatures but really we just did not have the right conditions to grow them.

Well, spring made its own statement here too, by not showing up at all.

Happy Mother's Day, Jo-Jo!

Oh my, this image really does look like a kaleidoscope! I've been searching for the one trillium I planted last spring, but sadly haven't seen a bloom anywhere.

Joey, it may be a chilly, wet spring, but it is still a far sight better than the bitter winter we just got through. I know we are so busy with our spring planting and cleanup, but isn't it wonderful to be out there again?

as I edit old blog posts I found this from you in May 2010, and now I wonder if I ever responded? I was new to blogging then.

A touching story/photos, Diana. What hit me most was how she lost her soul when her vision failed (I dealt with this personally when my beautiful sister lost her sight and, understandably, fell into deep depression). Thank you for sharing ... you have a beautiful way of telling a story.

I read Laurie's Cloudy Day blog from Canada. She is a gifted artist who is steadily losing her sight. How cruel when artits lose their sight!
