I Need Spring!

 Yes, I need spring! We've had a fairly mild winter here on the prairie east of Denver, with not much snow, but after awhile the brown fields and  grey trees and bushes get old. So...I looked through my photos of last summer and found these cheerful scenes. They are all located in Montana, in the hills above Missoula. I love the Indian Paintbrush, with its bright red color in contrast to the fresh green grasses.

This is one of my favorite scenes. The delicate, new grasses and pale green needle sprouts on the ends of the fir trees, interspersed with several different varieties and colors of wildflowers, is an amazing sight! I identified some Indian Paintbrush but the other flowers I'm not sure of. They are all beautiful! I once read a statement that said, "Looking into the face of a flower is looking into the thoughts of God." I feel that's so true! I see God in each one!

 We took this photo at lovely Seeley Lake in the hills east of Flathead Lake. Pond lilies are always a  gorgeous sight. There are a few reeds in there, too, standing tall in contrast with the flatness of the lily pads on the water. "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." Matt. 6:28-29 Come, Spring! I'm ready for your bright, and carefree flowers!

Thank you for the early touch of Spring. I have some yellow bulbs blooming and my Pansies are beautiful. Love flowers.
