Orange Blossoms

The amethyst paeans of hyacinth crest with a gust of butterflies on the scent of orange blossoms cascading to earth like snow flakes. Blood-red geraniums blazon Spring's birth not with a pulsing blare, but the soundless blush of love's ardent swoon. Placid jade fronds drape, acquiescing to silent bees emerging from blond snapdragons as euphoria of being exudes from the garden's breathless murmur. 3/31/19 POTD 4/2/19 I was thrilled and truly surprised since this only occurred once or twice in the past two years.
