Lord, I know that feeling! I'm sitting here at almost 8:30 pm, and it is still 65 degrees! But, no matter how long we've been seeing them, those are still one of my favorites!

YAY Fran That sure looks nice, but I really do think we're going to get walloped in March. Our ski areas have NO snow. Zilch. We usually have 70-90" base by now, Mt. Baker has about 120" yearly and they have nothing!

Beautiful, Fran! Spring is such a wonderful time!

Very pretty...a few hours south of you, I have primroses & crocus blooming and my plum tree is about to burst into color.

It's the only one. And every year when it pops out, I grin.

The forsythia is about to burst, and so is the quince, but there's just something about that one lone mini-daff, hiding under the juniper!

The weather here in Tennesse is so crazy too!!! One day its like 70 degrees and the next day it's 48!! I noticed today that some dogwood trees have started to bloom and some flowers also!! The sad thing is...at night it gets down to 30 something. I read somewhere on CNN the other day that they are predicting this is going to be the hottest year since weather was recorded. So, who knows?? All I know is that it's going to be hot as the dickens and all the pretty flowers are going to be dead!!!

Such a pretty picture. We have flowers in the garden too - with snow

It is lovely to see the first signs of spring!

There are some Daffs and Crocus out down the road and they really cheer the place up! I have just planted up a pot of Primroses to brighten up my balcony!

Okay! I usually wait until March 1 to hang out my daffodil flag (St. David's Day - patron saint of Wales whose symbols are the daffodil & the leek), but I think I'll put it up today (even though they're predicting wet snow for this evening). All of mine have buds and I think one is thinking about blooming soon - I can kind-a see some yellow. The quinces are just starting to green-up. Only a few more weeks for us until spring busts out!

We have one lonely daffodil in bloom but it's enough to make you feel good! Spring is on its way!!!!!!
post #20 of 29

No we are not that close to the slides, but seems everywhere you go there are road closeures flooded out streets it's just a mess, and i can see the mountians out the upstairs window and we have SNOW lots of it, and personally I'm so done with this wet, cold mess Of course when summer comes we'll be to hot , but I alway's tell my hubby I'm a women I have the right to complain This is strange weather for us here in So Ca, some say were to spoiled, Hopefully there won't be a whole buch more, because then I'll have to rent Noah'sArk Have a Wonderful Day where ever you all are ....I'm trying here

You're right, it is Canada -- BUT, this little piece of it isn't called "Lotus Land" for nothing! This may not mean a great deal to folks on other continents -- or it might, I don't know -- but it probably will to gardeners in the US -- we're USDA hardinesss zone 8. And I love it!

Believe it, we have those too! It's been awfully warm so all the critters are coming out.

We saw some wild flowers on our walk Monday!

I am actually thinking of going to the Mojave dessert (about 6 hours from me) this spring to see the wild flowers there, it's suppose to be amazing.

Lovely daffodils!!! Horay for spring!
post #26 of 29
we're supposed to get 6 inches of snow tomorrow But at least I have hope now!
post #27 of 29
Our daffodils are coming up in the garden too, and the cherry trees are in blossom. I planted two new rose bushes today - our other two are beginning to leaf out - and put in some cool weather plants in the garden (lettuce, broccoli, onions, peas) and seeded spinach, catnip and mesclan mix. I love Spring and am being spoiled by the 70 plus weather here in the south.

Yes, the flowering trees are doing their thing. Here's a cluster that I especially love every spring -- I pass by it on my way to work every morning...

It happens so fast! I saw a Christmas tree still up yesterday and then saw buds on trees! Nature has no time for grief no does she!
