Signs of Spring - Finally!


This winter has been one of the coldest, wettest and snowiest that we've had in a very long time.  It has been the kind of winter that keeps me cuddled up in  heavy sweats and wool socks and in a listless, "don't want to do anything" kind of mood.

Our camellias (first pink flower) have been in bud all winter and these usually bloom in February.  The crocus and Lenten Rose are usually in bloom in February also.  However, they're all just now coming into their full beauty, almost a month late. 

No matter when they arrive, they're a welcome and uplifting sight!

My favourite...Camellias Love them. It must be so nice to have the lovely flowers coming into bloom after the cold winter.
As you say Jan it is very uplifting.
Thank you for sharing the lovely blooms.
