While much of the country has already experienced soaring temperatures, here in New York, this has been an especially beautiful spring. Cooler temperatures have prolonged the season of lilacs, irises, and azaleas.
Even the rhododendrons and peonies are just now in full bloom.
I think of these kinds of days as “gift” days, allowing me to more fully enjoy the cool mornings and to take longer end-of-day strolls through the neighborhood, with its profusion of flowering bushes and small flower-filled gardens.
I hope wherever you experience spring, you have an abundance of flowers and blooms to enrich your day —
including bouquets of fresh-cut flowers that also bring about that same springtime joy.
