Here Come the Roses...

Good Morning,

It feels so good to go out each morning and see what is new in the garden.  Here come the roses (above)...
...and the magnolias (last year in full bloom here)...
...and even the wild strawberries.

Isn't Spring wonderful!

Enjoy,
Lois

You are ahead of us in Spring! It's still cold up here. I did notice yesterday that my Lilac bushes have the first hint of new buds on them.

Hello Lois
After the awful winter the northern hemisphere had I think all of you will enjoy this coming spring
I'm giving mine a haircut this week to trim off all the old blooms - might even get some more before its time to really cut them down for the winter
Take care
Cathy

Your garden is coming alive! :D

Cleaning out the flower beds, I've spied things starting to pop out of the ground. Since we have only lived here since August 2010, I'm not really sure yet what kind of spring blooms will be popping up.

I, too, love inspecting what's transpired during the past 24 hours... I've had some roses already (gotta love Florida), but they went a little dormant after a couple crazy days of storms. A lot of buds are coming out now. Plus, the kids have to inspect their carrots and peas daily for progress... even though they were planted 4 days ago.

I've always wanted roses planted near my front door, so when I come home after work I can smell them... also when I have the windows open, I can smell them then, too! =)

I guess spring has really arrived for you! It's supposed to get into the 40's here today, but more rain and snow forecast in the next couple days.

Diana said...

Isn't it great to see all of the new blooms? We are blooming like crazy here too. It's supposed to be in the 80's this weekend, only rainy but that helps! Love Di ♥

You are spoiled - warm enough weather to get the roses started. I can hardly wait. Great post.

Kelly said...

Oh my gosh....Thank Goodness!! It took a while to get started here, but springs going strong now! Can't wait to see your roses in full bloom.

Gunn said...

This is a nice sign of spring, and I look forward to see the roses a bit later.
Anyway, I thought I should give you this; www.epla.no
You are so creative that I thought about you when i had a quick look at some of the things there.
- Enjoy your weekend!:)
