I am looking forward to summer flowers and walking through gardens that are full of them.

"That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~

    One of the most delightful things about a garden
    is the anticipation it provides.
