Wildcard Wednesday: Just A Few More Signs of the Garden

Okay, I know I told you I was almost finished with all of the "Signs of Spring", but more just keep popping up!  In the last couple weeks, we've had a few new blooms that I just have to share. 

I love looking out my kitchen window while I'm cooking or doing dishes to see this.....
 ......and this......
 .....and this......

In the front yard, the bright yellow Daylilies are a nice greeting after a hard day at work.

And the pansies have enjoyed a few days of cooler weather.

And just one more to show you.  These were our very first peony blooms! 
I love their soft pink color!
 Unfortunately, with the rain we've had & nothing to support them, the weight of their big, moppy heads caused them to do a head-dive into the surrounding we clipped them, washed them off, & brought them indoors to enjoy.
 They just might be my new favorite flower!

What is it about flowers that makes my happy?  That brings a smile to my face?
Is it their pop of color after a color-less winter?  Is it their fresh fragrance?  Is it because they signify new beginnings.....hope?  Is it because they point to an amazing Creator? 
Maybe a little of everything.

What about you?  What is it about fresh blooms that you love?
