Each spring morning brings new surprises

As I creak and crackle out of bed each morning, I wonder what new bloom surprises the day will bring.  I make a cup of coffee and run the gantlet of cold hooligan noses out to the mail box to pick up the morning paper. I pick up my coffee and breakfast and sit out on my screen porch reading and watching the hummingbirds attack the feeders and each other. After the second cup of coffee, I grab my camera and head out to the garden to see what new surprises are in bloom.  Each day brings a bloom to life that hadn’t given a hint that it was near showing its splendor.
