“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything. (Sonnet XCVIII)”
William Shakespeare

 Enjoying the most beautiful patch of clovers, from seeds scatter by me two years ago.

The most wonderful fragance in my garden comes from those roses.

“A Robin said: The Spring will never come,
And I shall never care to build again.
A Rosebush said: These frosts are wearisome,
My sap will never stir for sun or rain.
The half Moon said: These nights are fogged and slow,
I neither care to wax nor care to wane.
The Ocean said: I thirst from long ago,
Because earth's rivers cannot fill the main. —
When Springtime came, red Robin built a nest,
And trilled a lover's song in sheer delight.
Grey hoarfrost vanished, and the Rose with might
Clothed her in leaves and buds of crimson core.
The dim Moon brightened. Ocean sunned his crest,
Dimpled his blue, yet thirsted evermore.”
Christina Rossetti

Pink Hyacinth are wonderfully scented 

 Enjoying family day at Bayou Bend, just a perfect spring day in one of the most beautiful place in Houston !

                     Bird love...

   The Antique Rose Emporium  is a perfect place to enjoy at spring time.

 Lately, enormous ancient  looking tree makes me to stop to appreciate its beauty, this one is at the center of the Antique Rose Emporium

     Under the weeping willow, lots of fun games and pretending happens.

             A side view of the small chapel, beautifully landscape, just the way I like it! 

The crape myrtle pathway to the chapel

            Among family, among friends, among flowers. Great memories!
