Run for the Roses

Beautiful Bunch of Blooms

Something about early May brings a spring to our step…  The weather warms, the flowers bloom, we celebrate yet another birthday and the Kentucky Derby is always a great excuse for a party.  We’re also mindful as we age that we need to try to live in the moment and have fun, even as time seems to speed up exponentially.  The words of Dan Fogelberg’s iconic song are especially appropriate today…

Heavenly Hues

Pretty Posies

And it’s run for the roses
As fast as you can
Your fate is delivered
Your moment’s at hand

Crowned Glory

Pink Perfection

It’s the chance of a lifetime
In a lifetime of chance
And it’s high time you joined in the dance
It’s high time you joined in the dance.

Garden Gems

Will you be dancing this weekend with a spring in your step?  We hope so!
