Deepwater Blooming

I took these last week while visiting my parents and intended to post them days ago.

That's just the way it's been lately.

(Deepwater is the name of the neighborhood I grew up in, by the way.)

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off they sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

Wisteria dripped from thick vines woven through a trellis on the back porch.

Morning Glories turned the chain link fence into a work of art.

My grandmother planted these brilliant azaleas in the front of the house. 
They shout SPRING IS HERE!

Wisteria petals dotted the patio table. 
So delicate.

These are blossoms on a Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow plant. 
The petals change from purple to lavender to white. 
Amazing and gorgeous!

Just a carpet of tiny yellow flowers decorating a field in the middle of the neighborhood where all of the schools are located.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 
I'm spinning in circles again, but will try to come around visiting everyone this week!

My friend was able to recover my lost NEF files, by the way. He used a program called Rescue Pro by Sandisk. Whew! I'll be eternally grateful to him for taking the time to retrieve them and help me learn a little more about photo files. (And all it cost me was a 12-pack of Budweiser!)

Check out his beautiful website and if you have friends getting married in the Austin area, send them his way: Bruce Coville Photography
