I try to bring the outside in all year long.

But this time of year, especially so.

I don’t want to miss out on any of the blooms. Flowering shrubs and blossoming trees are my favorite.

(I wrote about making springtime sun prints last year).

A trip to my yard or a walk around the block is all I need to gather a little bouquet (I only took one tiny branch from my neighbors beautiful dogwood!)

Fleeting spring.
