Just spotted....

Some of you have mentioned having daffodils blooming for awhile already.  Well, on Monday afternoon, this is what I discovered here.


Peeking through the ground.

Hydrangea buds.

Dutch Iris are waking up!

Last year, I had purchased some mini-daffodils (in bloom) to use as part of an altar arrangement for our District UMW Day Apart.  Once the event was over, I transplanted the bulbs into our yard.  It was a real surprise to see that they are actually blooming again!

The hydrangea bush is full of buds!  That is one of my favorites!  They are really pretty when they bloom.

I hope you are able to see the green that indicates the Dutch Iris are coming up, too! 

We have colder temperatures coming, with a chance of snow flurries in the forecast.  Hopefully these first "signs of spring" around here will be able to withstand the colder weather.

Thank you for reading.  I appreciate your comments.


  1. Lovely! It's always so exciting to watch everything come back. :) I can't wait to have a garden again. There is a peace and magic in it that I never found in the same way in anything else. ♥

  2. It a magical time of year when the earth awakens and the colors emerges from the dormant soil. Here,it's still very much winter and it will be a while before we see some color. Enjoy.


  3. Oh wow! With colder weather coming, can you cover them with something? To help them make-it????

  4. it is magical each spring to watch the earth wake up.

  5. Not fair that you have flowers and I have snow. ;-) They are beautiful.

  6. Lovely to see some spring colors. None here yet, but I did notice that the grass is starting to turn green again in places. : )

  7. Well, we actually did have some rather large snowflakes up here (about 30 miles from you, toward the mountains), but it had stopped by the time we had to leave around 9 a.m., and we had sunshine for most of our journeys out and about. That wind was awfully cold, though, and I hope all the buds that are out all over the place won't get their little noses pinched!

  8. I am jealous. We have nothing hopefully soon. It's either snow and ice and now mud. Great to see some spring time. Anna

  9. My hydrangeas haven't woke up. I am so glad you are getting color. It is always pretty this time of year.

  10. Isn't it awesome to see those daffodils pop up for the first time in the Spring? I always get so excited. Course, we could have snow the next day here in Oklahoma.


  11. I am SOOO VERY JEALOUS! We had MORE snow today! UGH- xo Diana
