Sitting on my back porch or meandering through my burgeoning garden in April and May generates spring fever in me, because I love flowers. I love the perennials that bloom in spring and yes, Spring Beauty is the name of a five-petaled wildflower that looks like peppermint candy. But there are other spring beauties close to my heart. I want to share some of them with you, but please, do not reproduce these copyrighted images without my express written permission.
And yes, I admit that spring fever also nudges my attention away from my writing. (Not really, if you consider the phallic image of the interior of a tulip. I'm always thinking of *ahem* love scenes.) But honestly, I’m doing research in between getting dirt under my fingernails and using up my camera’s pixels. I’ve experienced my first flogging and after I process all the sensations and emotions that came with it, look for a blog on that subject.
Meanwhile, this week I just wanted to share photos of some of my garden’s beauty. And the unseen beauty of perennials is, of course, that once they’re planted, they come back year after year.

Not a bad harvest for a skinny suburban lot, hey? What’s in your garden? Do you have a favorite flower?
