Today's Flowers--the color of winter

I'm pretty sure that spring is the absolute opposite of winter in Minnesota; therefore, it is necessary to keep the memory of spring flowers alive. I took this photo two springs ago in the front of a neighbor's yard where the Columbine were stealing the show. Today we have a windchill advisory so I'll have to be content with this sweet memory.
Visit the virtual flower shop at Today's Flowers for a Monday bouquet.

The color of springtime is in the flowers,
the color of winter is in the imagination.

Love the memory of spring in your flowers. Thanks for putting them up today. Love that you have a Carl Larsson painting on your side board, his paintings inspire my interior decorating.
