  3. What beautiful Spring flowers! Lily of the Valley always amazes me at how strong a scent it has despite being so tiny.

  6. I just adore spring......my favorite season and for it is after all the return of Persephone back from the underworld. And have I ever told you Iris are my favorite flower? Well they are. Shame they don't last longer when cut in vase.

    2. Your cats look very friendly and they sure know how to pose for the camera! Do they ever sniff each other's butts?
