Graceful Resilience on Mother's Day

Deep royal blue grape hyacinths bend low under the weight of a fresh spring snow in the Colorado Rockies. When you live in the Colorado Rocky Mountains you expect spring snows. I have long ago given up the notion to run outside and cover my freshly emerging spring flowers. They have to be tough! Grape hyacinths fit that bill perfectly. They gracefully bend low under the weight and then when the sun emerges to melt away the spring snow they slowly stand up again. They remind me that part of being a loving mom is graceful resilience with just a sprinkle of toughness. Wishing all you Moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day!

  6. I adore grape hyacinths. Here, they spread voraciously and willy nilly, but I like that about them! Wonderful photo!

  9. Oh, how gorgeous! You captured the best blue I think I've ever seen. Also, this was by far my favorite of all the Mother's Day posts I read (and I read a lot of them).
