Signs of Spring

Up here in Ontario, we are finally seeing spriscillang. The snow has melted away to reveal matted brown lawns. But that’s okay. Among the blades of dead grass, the first flowers are beginning to emerge. See that blue bloom my daughter Sophie is admiring? Look reaaaally closely. It’s a perfect little scilla. Just one tiny flower, but such a joyous sight after four and a half months of snow and record-breaking cold.

What better way to celebrate spring than with a brand-new boxed set bursting with romance and passion? Love Blooms on Main Street is now available for pre-order for only 99 cents.

Valentine coverEach story is inspired by a different flower. My contribution, Forever Your Valentine, has a pivotal scene involving daisies, which symbolize loyal love. At the end of a day trip to Pelee Island, while Faith and Cole take a stroll at sunset, she makes the decision to let go of her inhibitions and spend the night with him. Though neither of them is prepared to commit to anything deeper than friendship, the attraction between them is too strong to resist. Could they be falling in love despite their best efforts?

    It’s easy to forget how much colder you are up there. The leaves on the trees are unfurling here, the dogwoods and azaleas are in bloom, and the wisteria is coating everything in light purple! I love spring! And I bet your girls do! Just getting out of the house without layers of clothing is freeing!

    Susan, your daughter is so pretty. Children love little “found” flowers. My small crystal bud vase held many tiny flowers when my kids were little. Even if it was a weed, I placed it in the bud vase and extolled its beauty. *g*

      Yes, they like to gather all kinds of flowers, even from the neighbour’s garden if I’m not looking! Of course we don’t mind if they pick the dandelions on the lawm. I’ve received many dandelion bouquets.

    Thanks. She wails like an air-raid siren when she’s unhappy, though. (LOL)
