Popping up....

Well it is about time I popped up!
Time has been getting away from me lately,
and I miss my blog...

We have been enjoying a few spring like days
I have been doing lots of garden clean up...

I thought maybe you would enjoy a mini garden stroll?
 I'll show you whats popping up...


I found these perfect Pansies
 tucked into the backside of a pot,
beside the fence...

in their protected nook,
they road out the winter well...


the Rockcress
is just beginning to bloom
and spill over the rockery...


the first round of early Crocus is fading....


but a new later round is coming to
take over...


over the winter
we removed a couple large trees,
so I have been busy redoing the beds...

these clumps of Crocus
were dug up before the work began
and are today's job.

dividing and replanting...


I will end our mini garden stroll
with the happy face of a Pansy...
smiling at you :-)

and

Thanks for joining me today....

I have wondered where you were Bella! I haven't blogged much either, I am ready to get back into flower and garden blogging. I looked at the crocus today and thought I should do some pics of them and blog. We are thinking on the same lines. Love your photos,
Blessings,
Gayle

Crocus ~ one of the first signs of spring. These are beautiful! Love the sweet pansies and rockcress too!

Rowan said...

It's lovely to see all the Spring flowers appearing isn't it? My crocus have nearly finished now and the first few daffodils are just beginning to flower.

Your garden looks beautiful. I love how Spring time all the colors come out and you discover new surprises.
Hope you can come visit my first linky party Simple & Sweet Fridays. You have such creative ideas.

Hi Bella
Your spring flowers are a welcome sight to me. Everything here is still drab and dirty looking.
Hope you are keeping well.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Oh, how lovely, Bella! My pansies are still under a blanket of snow. But we had the warmest March day since 1944 today. The snow has really taken a beating. Spring is just around the corner and I'm sooo happy!! Thanks for sharing and have a lovely weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Here in New England my crocus are coming up as well, Bella. I've been raking the garden beds and the splash of yellow, lavender and white is such a welcome sight.

Hello Bella,
I have been doing the same. I have the blisters, splinters, scratches and sore muscles to prove it! I am one happy camper - it is such a joy to discover one's darling flowers popping up after a long winter's rest. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful post with Home and Garden Thursday,
Kathy
