Spring Flowers are Blooming

I knew I had to participate in WordPress’ Daily Prompt, A Moment in Time, when I saw the topic:  What was the last picture you took? Tell us the story behind it. We went out to the garden center yesterday because the primroses and petunias are ready to plant outside.  The last pictures I took…
