Where have all the flowers gone?????

It has occurred to me that I have been MIA this week.  I haven't posted since the 13th, I've stopped by a few blogs but didn't comment,  I have felt overwhelmed and under inspired.  Why does that happen?  It's a question that baffles me.  Maybe it's the snow, more snow, and more snow coming.   I don't really have an answer but I'm starting to feel more inspired and starting to come out of that funk.

I decided that posting some of my favorite flower photos might help me think of spring somewhere out there in the future.....
I hope you are having a great week.  Stay warm... I've got may hot water bottle out today.
