  7. The Chionodoxa are my favorite. Tim & I call them the little purple stars when they come up every year. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your spring garden is lovely!

    Hi Eliza. Signs of spring. I expect you are desperate for them after all that snow. Our bluebells are looking beautiful here at Le Shack but we are leaving them on Monday, heading back to the boat. I miss having no garden, but it will soon be time to plant up a few pots on the boat which is one of my favourite jobs. In the past I have had as many as nineteen but they ruin the paintwork so I shall have to scale back a bit I fear.

    They’re beautiful. Do bees enjoy them? Butterflies? (Do you even have butterflies yet?)

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Linda. At this point, I’ve seen few bees, but it might be early yet. We’re in the midst of a bit of summery weather with temps in the 80s. Yesterday, I heard my first bumblebee buzz by and saw a cabbage white, which was definitely a surprise.

  11. What joyful sights! I especially like the contrast between the lovely flowers and the dried leaves. Spring meets fall.

  12. That is a nice variety of colors. Will they last in the heat?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, the lawn is awash in color! No, sadly, they go fast at these temps. The crocus as keeling over, but the daffs are coming on strong to replace them.

    Floral Friday, indeed!

  15. So nice to finally see some blooms. My crocuses have bloomed as well and a number of other bulbs are sprouting out throughout the garden. If I can keep the squirrels from eating the buds I should have some nice blooms in the coming days & weeks. (Suzanne)

  16. So wonderful to see, lovely!

  17. Kris P says:

    That’s a pretty mix. I’m glad spring has reached you!

  18. Beautiful! I know this made you happy.

    Beautiful! We still have to wait another month! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒณโค๏ธ

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Really? I didn’t realize that you were behind us!

      • Bela Johnson says:

        OH, yes. We are at 7400 ft. elevation here – and close to the CO border at the tail end of the Rockies. Still can freeze, even in June. Having the greenhouse helps. I don’t even try to plant veggies outside. I did get some daffodils, hyacinth, and trees this year. They are still waiting in their pots in the greenhouse. I’ll pop them in in a couple of weeks. Happy solar eclipse today! ๐Ÿ’—

  20. What a lovely array of blooms, so hopeful and beautiful, Eliza!

  21. Worth the wait. Winter’s doldrums make spring all that much better. ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Beautiful beginning to spring, love the leaves with the first shot and how the flowers look like theyโ€™re glowing in the second photo.๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Val Boyko says:

    Such beauty๐Ÿ’ enjoy the unfolding Eliza ๐Ÿ’–

  24. Such a cheerful floral assembly. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  25. Pretty ๐Ÿ’œ I always loved these early bloomers, I had them on our property 30+ years ago, always popping through my leaves, telling me to get busy cleaning up the flower beds! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. Great overhead view as theses beauties spring forth!
