Showers, Flowers and Snow?

I've been wanting to get out in the garden
but,  it has been a real soaker out there...

 things can always change...
a chance of snow is in the forecast!

We better go poke around while we can...

(click photos to enlarge)

What is spring without eggs?


The Leonard Messel Magnolia is popping open...

please pardon the blurry photos
it's pretty windy today:-)



a group of ruffly Daffodils...



New to the garden last year
blue Anemones...


also new from last year...
white Anemone,
I love the droopier head on these...


The first tulip of the year....

(Grape Hyacinths)

When it's nasty outside...
I find it's best
 to just to bring the flowers in to enjoy :-)


wishing you sunny skies!!

Today I am joining...
at a Beach Cottage
and

Thanks for stopping by...

My thoughts are the same.. bring the flowers indoors to enjoy when you can't get out....
your spring blooms are simply beautiful.

Oh Bella Sweetie...
An exquisite share. I love the ruffly daffodils. I have never seen any before. And those grape hyacinths, oh be still my little heart. That tulip is down right gorgeous.

Love that statute as well. Your garden stroll this evening is quite delightful. No snow here in the desert, but we may be getting some rain tomorrow. Yippee, free water for the flowers. I love it.

Hope you have a gorgeous week sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

oh, your garden is waking up!!!

Lynn said...

So love your stunning photography right along with your stunning garden photos I have seen, since I am new to your blog this year. I always feel I am right there in the garden with you. Also love the stone rabbit on your sidebar. Hope you don't get more snow! Cannot last much longer before Spring is here to stay. Here in Florida its Spring/summer, back and forth with beautiful dryer weather and then humid over the top highs for this time of year. Blessings.

Hi Bella
Don't feel bad, we had snow today again and it was cold this morning when I walked Topaz.
I love the top photo with the eggs, it says spring and Easter together.
Hugs,
Judith

Those ruffley daffodils are so very different than the ones I've seen. Flowers must be your passion because your pictures are beautiful.

Practically all these flowers do not grow in the tropics (where I live) so its gorgeous to look at them in photos. Those ruffly daffodils (for me a first).

Renee said...

You are so blessed to have flowers in your garden already, Bella! They are just beautiful! I'm still waiting for things to green up here in MI. It's been soooo cold lately!

Dear Bella,

I hope you will get those blue skies soon! Your garden looks very pretty. That Magnolia and those daffodils, all so beautiful! I see your garden is a little bit ahead, as we don't have tulips yet.

Enjoy your blue grapes!

Lieve groet & happy evening,

Madelief said...

Dear Bella,

I just read your comment on my blog. It sounds so exciting to use your old kitchen build a new in your shed! I am looking forward very much to see it, as I know it will be lovely!!

Good luck with both kitchens!!
