very pretty! I keep meaning to take some pix of my flowers - could this be the year??? I have daffy's, camellias, azaleas and snowflakes blooming currently - oh, and my forsythia is sending out it's last hurrah!
We just have the crocus here, but they are wonderful. In about two weeks we will have the combined blooming of the daffodils and the flowering plums. I love the combination of pink and yellow. And of course green. We aren't called the Emerald Valley for nothing! I just hope spring comes soon. Seems like it has been cold and rainy here forever. Thanks for the picture of hope Michael!
Michael, very pretty. I don't have a lot of bulbs (something to do with that annoying persistent foliage when the flowers have gone by) - but I do have hyacinths and fritillaria coming up. Hellebores, hepatica, daphne blooming, but overall, my soil (clay) is wet for doing much gardening.
Kathy, Wednesday I opened my eyes in the morning to big fat snowflakes on the skylights over my bed. Today it's pouring buckets of rain and 39o. I have a box of hellebores, epimedium, and a 3' fuchsia magellanica I'm taking to my brothers in Portland tomorrow and had wanted to plant them for him, not leave them in the pots - better pack my raingear.
I took these at an old cemetery alongside Pacific Coast Highway in Mendocino County.
For anyone that's interested, there's more at: Photos
although they aren't flower photos.
That is a beautiful meadow! I have a planter of little Tete a Tete daffs blooming that look like I was sent a spring bouquet.
The Redbuds are blooming all over town now! Not long till the real deal then :)
Michael-wonderful photography. Good reading too.
Sure is. As I left for work it was eleven degrees with a 30mph wind. I springed out the door and into the car as fast as I could. It is 58 degrees in my office right now. When the wind blows, my closet door flys open. Thank the Lord I have an east facing window because the sunlight is the only reason its above freezing in here.
It all sounds a tad cool Harry. Brrr.
Don't think I could hang.
