    Wow, very beautiful flowers, Eliza! ☺️

    I had no idea until two minutes ago that crocuses are in the Iris family. That helps to explain their early appearance! So many of our early flowers, like the Blue-eyed grass, also are in the Iris family, although you’d not think so to look at them.

  3. Maria says:

    Definitely spring!

  4. Anne says:

    Such joyous beauty in these bright blooms.

  7. Loving those white ones, whatever they’re called!

  8. Lovely!🙂 We finally have sunshine and warmer temps on the way and hopefully you’ll be enjoying all your spring arrivals soon!🙂

  9. Spring beauty at its best! Happy Easter weekend.

  10. All so pretty. Spring, spring, spring!

  11. Robin says:

    I saw the dogwood blossoms and wondered how you were ahead of us (and had crocuses and dogwoods blooming at the same time!). Beautiful, Eliza. 🙂

  12. Jet Eliot says:

    Oh so delightful to see this series of spring flowers, Eliza.

  13. Tina says:

    Lovely set of spring beauties–enjoy!

  14. Lovely. The colors are vibrant and uplifting.

  15. Dale says:

    If these three images don’t cry out Spring! I don’t know what would. Beautiful shots, all, Eliza.

    Sweet spring treasures. I love those crocus. Seems like such a great idea to have flowers in the lawn.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Susie. No weed-and-feed on my lawn, hehe! The crocus seeds have been spread over a wide area by ants, so every year is a surprise as to where they’ll show up!

  17. Jane Lurie says:

    Favorites! A lovely homage to spring, Eliza.

  18. Kris P says:

    Greedy gardener that I am, I really wish I could grow all 3 of these 😉

  19. I love crocus! A pretty set, Eliza!

  20. Flowerpoet says:

    Beautiful blossoms and lovely photos. I’ve seen some Dogwoods in bloom here in Victoria times past- also Magnolias, Camelias, Cherry and other fruit trees… they truly beautify the city. 😍🤗💕✨

  21. In what way were the dogwood blossoms “forced”?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      “Forcing’ is a horticultural term that is used when plants are brought into a warm house and ‘forced’ into breaking dormancy earlier than they would outside. Spring bulbs and tree blossoms are commonly used.

  22. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Ahh, I see spring is coming to you too:)

  23. Cathy says:

    Aaah, Spring is in the air! I hate to say it, but those tulips are my favourite… no sooner are the crocus over and I am yearning for tulip season! LOL!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Cathy. Those tulips were extra nice, I must admit. Not sure if the camera captured that they were almost a burgundy with a hint of orange at the base blending out to pale cream on the tips. As you can see outside we’re at the crocus and snowdrop stage. Scilla and chionodoxa, too. A few early daffs opened today, but with temps set to soar this week, things will leap ahead and the last of the snow in the shadows will be history!

  24. nshami14 says:

    So pretty and playful!

  25. So nice to see these springtime blooms and your beautifully composed photographs! Nothing happening here yet!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Denise. We’re heading into a summery trend the next few days, so that’ll make quick work of my smaller bulbs, but the daffodils will be right on their heels. We’re off to the races!

  26. All so cheerful and springy! Love how the crocuses brighten up a dull brown lawn. 🙂

  27. The orchids have me. So pretty!

  28. Now I am tempted to try forcing a twig or two of ours. Happy Spring, Eliza!
