Spring Rebirth

Crocus

Spring is finally making an appearance here and even though it's still in its preview stage, the future is clear...it's coming - snow or not.

With warm temperatures in the upper 40's and low 50's, we are seeing some signs on life on our little spot on the planet.
   

This promising hyacinth is getting ready to make its debut as soon as temperatures give it enough reason to rouse from it's winter sleep.
 

This purple crocus is still seemingly reluctant to open its petals all the way...maybe it's still wondering if more snow is in the forecast.
 

One of my favorite late spring flowers is the rhododendron. We have hedges of these along the lake shore road.  They do wonderfully in this climate. This nice fat bud is an indicator of a future beautiful bloom, click on Photo Walk: Rhododendron to see what I'm talking about...it's amazing!

Have a wonderful Easter and be blessed!

  1. Very nice captures. I love rhododendrons. I used to live in Portland Oregon where they grew everywhere. Now that I live in Idaho we can not grow them.

  6. I love both the crocus and the hyacinth - it's so exciting watching bulbs push through the earth and burst into a riot of delicate colour.

    1. It is a pretty color...isn't it? So glad I planted a few crocus bulbs years ago - they always give me some color when everything else is so bland. :)
