Penny,

What a sweet sight! It is gloomy and cold here. I would rather it be snowing! But I am going to be patient, spring is just around the corner! :-)

As I trudged through the snow today and up the stairs into the house, spring was the only thing on my mind. I am so ready this year. Perhaps it's all that's going on, but it feels as if spring could help.

I love that I can live through Spring twice a year thanks to the good ole internet! I love your bulb poking its way out Penny! Looks like Hyacinth?

Penny, I took pictures yesterday of some of my tulips peeking up through the brown leaves in one of my beds. Ahh... I hope they persevere. We are in the middle of a blizzard today. About 3 inches so far, and it keeps on coming.

The Painted Garden said...

Yeah - finally - the first sign of Spring in your garden - not much longer and everything in your beautiful area of North Carolina will be in bloom.
Have a lovely week.
Blessings,

Oh I'm trying really hard to welcome Spring but it snowed today! :( Well, it might just be the crazy weather and I will wish that next week is going to be sunny and warmer. :)

Angie said...

It is in the 70s where I live so I am already saying that Spring is here! I was excited to see today that my azaleas are starting to bloom!

I was so pleased to see that you also knew of the Faires and that they were on their way. Isn't it wonderful?!!

Your new header is just beautiful...very nice job!
Out here in West Texas, our winter has been so mild, I've not been as anxious for warm weather as most of you have. As I've mentioned, we have a lot of blowing dust during March, April, May and into June...then, we have the most beautiful of summers. So...I am pulling for SUMMER !!

Everything is blooming here in Atlanta. The trees, the daffodils, even my roses have the beginnings of buds. I was already hot yesterday! I had to have the AC on in the car!

Ours is here, but I have a brown yard from all the cold we had this winter in Florida! We need some rain to make things better.

I'm so happy that Spring is almost here! My favorite time of year!

Come on over...I have an award for you.

Kathleen Grace said...

I know the calender disagrees with me, but I hereby declare Spring here! The raindrops, and balmy 45 degree weather(Hey, it's Michigan! You wouldn't believe how balmy 45 can be!) prove it:>) I even see some of my bulbs peeking out!

Yippee for eating outdoors!! Oh how I love the smell of hyacinths. I planted some and they bloomed once but I never saw them again. I imagine some little critter enjoyed the bulbs. :(

We are 11 days into Autumn/Fall, so happy to see the end of a long hot summer
