|Easter Lillies on my Patio|
Florida is known for its flowers, everything imaginable from camellias, azaleas, gardenias, jasmine, so many flowers I can't even name and wild flowers everywhere.
On my patio the Easter Lillies are blooming in a wooden wine barrel. The trellised patio is laced with wisteria. Jasmine blooms opened this morning. The air is fragrant with their scent.
A night of heavy rains and now the final drip, plop, drip. The sun is just starting to peak through the clouds. Birds are singing their varied melodies. Squirrels dart across the lawn searching for fallen acorns, of which we have zillions of acorns covering the ground.
As a writer, I draw inspiration and renewal from the flowers, rain, birds. It's a sense of "hope springs eternal."
What wonderful stories will pop into my head this season? Certainly ones of love, hope and dreams.
