I find myself walking down this path out my back door to the swing in the backyard. There I enjoy swinging, enjoying the breeze, spring ... tulips. I think to myself, "How did I get out here? Did I fold the laundry? Did I unload the dishwasher?"
The tulips laugh all around me! They are so beautiful! They are incredible!
Some flowers look like pieces of art! I can't stop looking!
I stop in front of the first iris of the spring, purple on April Fool's Day! I'm unable to walk a step further.
I'm distracted by how delicate, how reminiscent of lace, these flowers are.
And across the yard, there is the first blooming azalea. I stare .....
My knees stop so I can't walk up the steps by the old pansy barrel ... The pansies laugh at me every time I climb the steps to the door.
Spring is a lovely distraction ...
And why I stop and look INSIDE a tulip, every time I walk by, I'll never know.
I think it is probably a good thing that we are so distracted in our lives. How else would we have the time to feel inspired by all the beauty that surrounds us?
Thank you for visiting and sharing my distractions! Are flowers laughing at you when you walk by?
