Whisper of Spring

It just doesn't seem fair that one afternoon I can be walking around the garden with a cup of tea seeing how things are progressing, and the next afternoon, everything is covered in about two inches of snow.  Such is the whisper of spring we had in my part of Ontario yesterday.
Bleeding heart coming through the leaves I pile on the gardens in the fall.
Peonies that will grace the table in vases and later become pot pourri.
The crocuses that get full sun are just starting to unfurl and they are a welcome sight for my craving of colour after winter.
Next week the weather is supposed to warm up again which will coax more of my spring beauties to awaken.
I'm linking with Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursday; what's blooming at your cottage?

  1. Hi Judith,
    I am glad to see spring popping up at your cottage:-) I think our season moves so slowly here that you will pass me in a wink.
    Hugs,

  4. We're supposed to get freezing temps tonight. I'll have to cover my lilac bush who thought that spring truly was here. :(

  5. Sorry snow came again. I know you guys are saying enough already. The crocus will be so pretty opened up. I bet a lot happens between now and next weeks garden post.

  7. Beautiful! I heard about "your" snow in parts of Ontario. My daughter is currently living just outside of Toronto and they got 6 inches... she was not pleased.

  9. We don't have snow but we've had days of rain and I am itching to get back out to the garden. I am heading to the nursery later. Love crocus. You are lucky to be able to grow it.

  15. One of my most favorite sites is the green peeking through the snow. It is always amazing that the flowers return. Yours are just beautiful.

  16. Judith, Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a precious comment on my post, pieces of my heart, this week. Your words meant more than you can ever know. Thank you again from my heart. I love your phrase, "whisper of spring". It sums up beautifully the bulbs starting to come through the earth and then snow! Here in Florida, I fear Spring has already flown the coop and we are into an early summer. Spring here is a "flash in the pan" type to begin with, at least for me, being from the NE where one can savor Spring. Blessings.

  19. I love all of your purple in your header and page. Soooo pretty.

    You are lamenting the same thing I lamented today! Snow covering and almost breaking off the spring flowers. I had to go rescue some. I guess that is part of the fun, but I am ready for sun and fun.

  20. It's hard to see the tender shoots covered in spring snow....but it's only for a while, and the plants always survive. It's our spirits that need need the gentle weather!
