Welcome, Spring!

Daffodils, blooming early in my neighborhood this year (February 2016) . Always a cheerful sight.

Our 2015-2016 Winter hasn’t been harsh, very little snow, so I won’t complain.

However, that doesn’t stop me for wishing for the flowers of Spring! I’ve already seen daffodils in bloom in the neighborhood, so I’ve gotten part of my wish. Here are some photos of blooms from previous Springs from my travels in different parts of the country.

  1. Lovely photos!!! Spring has sprung! And it feels amazing!

  2. I love the New Mexico photo – simply gorgeous

  3. All beautiful flowers, Catherine. I couldn’t decide upon just one to highlight, they are all gorgeous.
    Of course, down under, we are heading into Autumn/Fall; though, you wouldn’t know it; it still seems very Summery here, though the evenings are just beginning to have a ‘coolness’ about them, which I love.
    The Texas Bluebonnets surprised me. I thought they were Lavender.. So pretty!

    • Thank you, Carolyn! So far the daffodils in one flowerbed are the only flowers that I have seen blooming here. When Spring finally arrives, I swoon! Our street is lined with crabapple trees of pink and white flowers, plus redbud trees with purple flowers. I know your winters there are very beautiful, too.

      • I’d be swooning, too!
        The crabapple and redbud trees would be such a treat, especially ‘in colour’. I absolutely adore Autumn/Fall when the deciduous trees begin their turning. Beautiful reds, yellows/oranges to be seen everywhere. Such a joy…
