B is for Blooms



B is for Blooms and I have some beautiful ones to share today.


While I can't grow a flowering plant to save my life, I just adore the gorgeous colors, shapes, and aromas. They're so romantic. My whole body sighs and I melt against them, brushing my cheek along the magical surfaces to feel the gentle caresses. Then I cave and succumb to burying my nose in the pedals. 

The closest ones to survive under my care have been...


 The Azaleas I have in my Kitchen window
(a real shocker there! They keep blooms all year round.)
Honeysuckle that make up our yard's hedge
(yes I'm going to count this)
the flowering pear tree in our yard. *big smile*

But I would love to be able to grow orchids!


What's your favorite Spring Blooms?

Can love be true if shared with more than one?  Kami doesn’t think so when she finds Ian is an elite and required to take three wives to eliminate the poverty-stricken population.  Why can’t he be poor the way she thought he was when she fell in love with him?
Determined to find a realm that doesn’t have such dictates, she travels to dimension Three-Two-Three to begin her search.  But is love truer in a place that only allows one spouse than it is in Ian’s heart?

What they’re saying

“Sweet, romantic, and heartfelt.  A great introduction to the author’s world.”—J.D. Brown Book Club

“One for Kami is a story that will have you willing to give up everything for your one true love.”—Annette, Gothic Mom’s Book Reviews

“[Wilson] spins a tale of true love spanning time and dimensions that will inspire the reader to sacrifice everything to find their soul mate.”—Debbie, Read2Review

Hey, lovely post and flower pics. Coming from the UK, my favourite spring flowers are daffodils!

I love daffodils but I also love cherry blossoms on a Japanese cherry blossom tree. They are so beautiful!
