Back in our Own Garden

Spring continues to unfold, though it remains stubbornly cold, or at least chilly, and wet!  I don't have much new to show you, but the flowers we do have are bright signs of spring.  The cool temperatures just seem to be holding things back.  And the last two days it has rained all day.

The crocuses remain one of the brightest signs of spring.

We have quite a few Daffodils out front, none of which have bloomed yet, but Mrs. F.G. planted several bulbs out back which have come into bloom faster.  So these are the first two Daffodils to appear this spring.

One of the 'candelabra' style Primrose, in a beautiful purple colour.

Our larger Hellebore, or Lenten Rose, seems to have an abundance of flowers, even if they all hang downwards.

Finally, our Forsythia has burst into  bright yellow bloom.  Spring is definitely here in spite of the cool temperatures.


  1. I love the primrose. I ought to check our forsythia. It is behind a tree, out of my vision. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Great pictures, love the colours.
    Out temp is way above the forecast today.
    Stay Safe and Enjoy the signs of Spring.

    It's about time.

  3. Lovey to see these Spring flowers.

    All the best Jan

  4. Colorful Spring flowers sure add to the Spring Tonic we all so desire. Nice color combination on the Crocus flowers.

  5. Our Lenten rose is exactly the same color as the leaves. I got it from an old abandoned house, so that may the ancestral color of the leaves. In a couple of years you'll have more than two daffodils there.

  6. That Primrose is different and so pretty too.

  7. It must have been primrose that I saw recently.

  8. There is so much beauty around after the dull winter.

  9. Beautiful start! I can't wait to get to the Ridge and see what colours are waiting for us!

  10. Beautiful and so nice to see the spring blooms.

  11. Lovely photos of the spring blooms.
    Things are just starting to green up here.
    I hope the rain eases off for you soon.
