Hyacinth is my very most favorite fragrant spring flower. It’s scent transports me to springtimes of my childhood – every opportunity I had, I inhaled deeply the rich yet sweet aroma. And sometimes photography nudges me back to those places: kneeling (ok, for some of these I was lying) in the mud, surrounded by raindrops and color, birds and breaths, blessed to witness and capture God’s creation…


First thing she says when she hops off the school bus, “Mom! Can we pick those flowers now!?!?!” Ok, darlin’. ❤ 2017-5-Purple-69622017-5-Purple-6965

Daddy rolls up on his motorcycle just in time to be a designated flower-holder 😉


Because they are just as sweet and lovely inside as they are out. Just like my Miriam. ❤
