Nature's Inspiration Movie

http://www.flickspire.com/m/HealthierL433/NaturesInspiration -- Nature's Inspiration Movie: The photographs in this short video are from award-winning photographer, Ken Jenkins, and they are breathtaking. However, this video is much more than beautiful photographs! Peggy Anderson has compiled beautiful quotations from the likes of Emerson, Thoreau, and many others that truly capture the beauty of nature and solitude. Absolute must watch for nature lovers.

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

It is still 11:30 pm here; so, April 15 is still here, and that means I can participate in Garden Bloggers Bloom Day hosted by May Dreams Garden. I always think of participating in it but never remember. This time also I just remembered at the nick of time. So, here are are the blooms in my garden now.

Alyssum, Pansy and Dianthus. The fragrance of this alyssum is intoxicating; so is that of Dianthus though it has a much more sweeter-cinnamony fragrance.


Yellow Wallflowers (Erysimum); the red ones are yet to bloom but will do it soon. I'm forgetting the name of the third flower. I will have to look it up tomorrow morning.


Various colors of Hyacinth which are in full bloom now. The larger pictures show some more color.


How can I ignore my weeds which not only provide food for me (a topic to be written about later) but also makes my lawn look beautiful in the spring. Dandelion, Speedwell and Violets, all growing everywhere in every nook and cranny around my garden. They look the lawns very pretty, and also provide food to all the bees that are now waking up.


Euphorbia, Cow-slips (when will it spread and colonize the whole area? I can't wait any more though I just planted it in the fall of 2015), Grape-Hyacinth, Daffodils and Persia Purple Fritillaria


Fritallari flowers and creeping phlox


These are yet to bloom though the buds have become fatter -- Rhododendron, Dogwood and Ajuga. Hopefully, I will be able to showcase them in next month's bloggers bloom day.


I'm also joining in the memes hosted by Nature Notes hosted by Rambling Woods and St Germain's meme

  5. My goodness so many flowers! Impossible to choose a favorite, but I always liked the almost transparent fritallary. Am not sure I ever saw the dark red flower where you show the heart of the flower - beautiful! Many thanks for being a part of SEASONS! And have a great week ahead!

  8. Hello! What a lovely garden and wonderful photos! I like especially the pretty Hyacinths of so many different colours.
    In our Finnish garden nothing's blooming yet. Thank you for your comment on our Italian garden. The plants are a nameless crab apple, then a Prunus 'Ferrovia' (very productive), a nameless Camellia and a Wisteria floribunda 'Longissima Alba'.
    Have a lovely new week!
