As I was washing dinner dishes the other night, I spotted two of the sweetest, smallest white flowers outside my kitchen window. Spring has been popping up quietly all over Charleston. I see paper whites as I’m stopped at a stop sign around the corner. And there are tulip trees blooming! But these Lilly of the Valley (at least that’s what I think they are) are the first signs of Spring in my yard.
I quickly dried my hands and grabbed my camera and opened the door outside before responsibility could get in the way of creative impulse. And I’m glad I did.
