    Spring Hope

    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Your flowers are beautiful. I especially love the lilacs, that is my very favorite flower. I am planning to head up to a town in the mountains this month where they grow and buy some. Love the smell.

    Beautiful photos! Unfortunately, here in NH, our Lilacs are not out until May. But, green shoots of Irises are peeking out of the soil. My blueberry bushes seemed to have made it through the winter without much damage. And the snowpile at the end of the driveway disappeared over the weekend! The mockingbird and cardinals are singing their hearts out!

    Beautiful flowers for you to enjoy. I have daffodils blooming and can see the forsynthia blooms starting to open a little bit. I love spring, hot and humid summer, not so much.

    When we lived in Virginia, we had snow drops whose blooms would poke through the snow in January, just to remind us that spring really was on the way. Now, in central Florida, they azaleas start blooming in January as well flame vine , which is spectacular. Most people think that we only have one season here, but all you have to do is pay attention to the nature around you.

    spring flowers

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful flowers. Here is a photo of my front yard, which is mostly "wild" now.
    Blessings, Roberta

    How beautiful your flowers are. ? about the fifth picture. Is this a flowering Almond? It looks similar to my FA but I thought they only had pink blooms.

    We are having a cool start to spring which is good. right now all I have are windflowers and crocus blooming.

    This little patch of crocus is very special, right next to my back steps and they remind me each spring of a good friend who loved gardening. On our last 'girls day' when all her posse got together I passed a small bag of these to all the girls, I think seven of us. I made them promise to plant them somewhere at their home so that every spring when they bloom, we will remember our dear friend.
    peace

    I love Spring. Downunder we are heading into autumn (fall you refer to it as) which then means that winter is the next season - not my favourite but then again in Sydney we do not have winters anything as severe as some of you have.

    Lovely photos.

    So pretty, thanks everyone for sharing! My daffodil and forsythia are blooming, despite still having cold temps at night. Hang in there all of you who still have snow on the ground.
