Think Spring

I'm finding out how much other bloggers besides us Canadians like to talk about the weather.  We're notorious for it being the main event in conversations but it's been enlightening to hear how others are faring during this strange winter also.
After extreme cold and lots of snow, we've evolved to a couple of days of milder temperatures with fog, rain and no sign of the sun.  What better way to bring a bit of pleasure than to think spring with some pretty flowers from my garden.  They'll be making an appearance by late March to early April.
I hope these blooms bring a bit of spring to your day!
Join us at Mosaic Monday to share a collage too.

  4. That is plenty of beauty to look forward to, Judith. I planted a lot of bulbs last fall for spring blooms and hope they haven't been confused by the weather.

  11. Your flowers are so pretty and nice to look forward to in a couple of months. We have bright sun and warmer temperatures after a huge rain with thunderstorms here yesterday. That usually means snow in two weeks (the thunder part)--we'll see if that happens!

  20. I don't recall people talking about the weather when I was a kid, but it is a huge topic of conversation in our area and of course anywhere that suffered through the Polar Vortex recently.

    Most nights we watch the sunset with everyone on our street and weather is a frequent topic.

  22. The next best thing to being in the garden is browsing through seed and plant catalogues and planning your spring garden.
    Those are beautiful images from your spring bulbs last year Judith!

  23. What a lovely, cheery mosaic - your photos are delightful and have really brightened up a grey, drizzly day here in the UK! I particularly love those red ones - they aren't familiar to me, but they look like little tulips? Beautiful!

  24. It has been a really strange year for weather for most of us. To be 49 today and back in 20's by the end of the week. The freezing and thawing are the problems for our plants.

  26. The weathersure seems to be on everyones mind and blog these days. I so love seeing your Spring flowers, looking forward to the little jump ups. For now, we have moved further South to our daughter's in NC, no snow but no spring flower either.

  27. Here we are barely a month into winter and we are all thinking spring! It is a dull day so it is wonderful to see the colourful spring blooms.

  29. So far we've had a very mild winter, here in rural France & I felt like it was spring a few days ago. my favourite season, so each Jan/Feb. I'm wishing for spring to come early. Lovely to see the pictures of your spring bulbs.

  30. What beautiful bloomers, Judith. I have to say that tulips and daffodils are my favorite spring flowers; they are just so cheerful. We are having warmer weather the past couple of days and I'm loving it.
    Hugs, Beth

  31. Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers. I am ready for Spring.
    Thanks for stopping by. A big dollop of orange marmalade on a scone sounds so good right now.
    Enjoy your evening.

  32. We're all about the weather here in Georgia too! I didn't get my longed-for snow last week, just 5 degrees early in the week, 58 later in the week!
