#Enchanted April – Wordless Wednesday April 26, 202333 Comments If you have not read the 1923 book or seen the 1992 movie it’s a charming story set in Portofino on the Italian Riveria. First sign of spring. Wild woodland daffodils “If thou of fortune be bereft, and in thy store there be but left two loaves, sell one, and with thedole, buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.” More soul food….. Grape hyacinths These two red tulips have been blooming in the same spot for thirty years. I’m glad I got the rose bushes pruned in early April as we had five days of summer-like weather. Okay, so it’s not the Mediterranean, but the water was blue and it was 82 F…. ….and there were people on the beach, in bathing suits in mid-April! The warm spell brought all the magnolia blossoms out, but was followed a few days later by wet flurries and since then two weeks of cool cloudy rainy weather. Chartreuse spring green against a blue sky. It was nice to sit outside and listen to the birdsong and read…and enjoy the longer hours of daylight. (Photo taken at dusk with the zoom lens I have not quite mastered yet!) I enjoyed this book, although not as much as her first book, Wintering Looking forward to May and more flowers!
