Flowers Bloom At Different Times

I took this photo yesterday, with the daffodils in bloom, and then the tulip will flower in its own tulip-time.

Each of our creative lives is unique.

Our gardens take care of themselves now.  The plants have survived many a Wisconsin winter.  Old leaves nourish new growth, a wall protects from some wind.  Past achievements provide hard-earned experience for something new, at the right time.  Each phase of the garden is beautiful in its own way.
