This was NOT taken today -- no blue skies on this Tuesday. These are such pretty, reliable spring friends -- Ice Follies, they are called -- up every year, and a bit of multiplying going on as well. Maybe this fall I will plant another 100. The earliest ones are fading now and they will all be gone in another week or so, but how they herald the joy of spring! I celebrate these beauties every year. Gratitude! Gratitude! For such companions in the spring.
