I like winter...it's not that I don't. I love the way things look when it snows and how the sun shines down through the bare trees making patterns on the snow. I even like the feeling of a brisk morning air. I DO NOT however like the frigid wind chills we have been having as of late. I like listening to the wind blow and howl but not when it is combined with below zero temps. So despite liking winter my thoughts have started turning to spring. My pretty fairy fountain is now buried in snow but when things start to green up again she will be there in all her beauty. I just love her and she makes a lovely addition to the garden. I have a findness for lilies and since moving here a few years ago have been adding new lilies each year. It will be fun to watch the new ones sprout and grow and then blossom. What a surprise the lily garden will be this year as I added many last summer. The colors are so vibrant and I find myself photographing and sharing them with my friends.My favorites are yellows but as you can see the orange ones above and the pinks below can hold their own amongst them. I'm sure come spring that they will put me in awe of their beauty once again.
