Hello Spring

Hello Spring!

Are you loving it?  I sure am.
We’re having gorgeous 70 degree weather here in western Idaho. {for a few days anyway}


Our crocuses bloomed a week ago.
Now we’re moving on to daffodils, pansies, and tulips ~
they’re so pretty and cheery.

Spring Flowers

Yesterday I did a lot of yard clean up and today I’m going to trim my roses.
Have you been out working in your yard yet?

All of our trees and bushes survived the really cold snap we had in January so I’m happy.
I’m always kind of nervous to go out and check around to see if everything is coming back to life.
Miraculously, they always do.

Spring.  New life.  Resurrection.

A Salute To Spring…Spring Time The Best Time

Spring in my step
Spring in the air
Lingering everywhere.

Spring fever to follow,
But I don’t care,
Spring, for new journeys,
I’ll meet you there!

By the garden gate,
You silly thing,
It’s an invitation to frolic
So let’s begin to sing.
It’s Spring!

    Although we hit 16 degrees (celius) on the weekend, they are forecasting snow flurries today 🙁
    I did get out and rake up the yard, measure for the new fence, and take stock of what needs to be done! Crocus did bloom thanks to sunshine, but tulips and daff’s are just starting to peek up through the soil.

      Hi Maureen, I’m trying to figure out what 16 degrees C is in F.! 🙂 We’ll probably have another little snow storm or two, also, but I’m sure loving this 70 degree weather. I just love spring yard clean-up. I’ll be eager to see what you’re doing in your yard.

    I don’t have any crocuses planted, even though every year I say I’m going to. Your tulips are SOOO pretty!! I don’t have much luck with them blooming for some reason. We don’t have anything blooming just yet in northern Indiana. My dafs are up, but may not open until later this week if it gets into the upper 50’s, like they’re calling for. I get so excited to see my flowers and gardens in bloom!

      Thanks, Beth, for telling me about your yard and what’s going on with it there in Indiana. I’ll try to send our lovely weather your way. Thanks for visiting. I’ll pop on over to your’s right now.

    Lori, can you send that 70 degree weather my way please? It’s windy and cold here in Pa. but the weekend looks promising. We’re hoping it will be warm enough to take a bike ride. Your tulips and daffodils are so pretty! You must have a green thumb!

      I hope our lovely weather comes your way. It’s going to dip down to the 50s by the end of the week.

    Hi! You were the link before me at the Southern Lovely link party! Your garden is gorgeous! I was born and raised in Montana, so I am surprised you have so many flowers blooming already! Gorgeous! I am waiting for {the inevitable} final night freeze before I plant the few planter flowers on my porch… they joys of apartment living!

    Thank you for sharing! So pretty!

    It’s Always Ruetten

      Thanks, Julia, for your nice comments. These flowers are bulbs so they won’t last long and the pansies are a cooler weather flower. How lovely that you have a porch to put potted plants on. I am not good with potted plants!

    Your pictures are gorgeous!! We haven’t quite hit that kind of weather in Michigan yet, I’m jealous of all your tulips!

    • Lori April 9, 2013 at 12:12 am #

      Thank you, Kristen, for your lovely comment. I’m sure your Michigan spring weather isn’t too far off.

    oh man, i WISH my garden looked like this! it doesn’t even look as peppy and happy and colorful as this in the summer. gorgeous!

    • Lori April 9, 2013 at 12:58 am #

      Haha!! My summer flowers never look great. I’m not a good hot weather gardener. So thank goodness for spring bulbs that just come up and look lovely.

  7. Printabelle April 4, 2013 at 7:27 pm #

    Your flowers are just amazing!! Love them!

    • Lori April 9, 2013 at 12:55 am #

      Thanks. They are pretty but these pictures turned out especially well and makes them look amazingly beautiful.

    Your tulips are gorgeous! What kind are they? I love when tulip petals have two shades to them.

    We were surprised to find (first Spring in the new house) croquis’ and other bulb flowers in our garden, but unfortunately, no tulips. The good news is I get to pick my own! Please let me know if you know the variety.

    • Lori April 12, 2013 at 11:46 am #

      Aagh. I’m so sorry, Yvonne. I am not good at knowing specific kinds. They are just red and white lacey tulips to me. What a nice surprise that you have some spring flowers that are coming up. They are just the energizer I need after a dreary winter.
