Signs of Spring - Saturday Snapshots

We've had a mild winter here in the Pacific Northwest, and signs of spring have already appeared. Here's what I discovered in a walk around my home over the past few days.
Blossom on a Star Magnolia tree after a rainy day

We cut back our camellias after they were damaged by
an ice storm a couple of years ago, so we were
delighted that one of them bloomed beautifully this year.

I caught a slug munching on my daffodils!
Luckily, this bloom was spared.

Purple crocus - One of the first flowers to emerge.
For those of you who are still waiting for spring, it will come ... eventually!

Oh the crocus are gorgeous - thanks for the hint of Spring as we still bake through an Australian summer :-)

the flowers are pretty but it seems a little early for crocuses.

Spring is the prettiest season!

We'll not get flowers like these until July! Beautiful!

I love them too and need to plant more bulbs this winter.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I thought so too. But I checked my garden calendar and they're blooming right on time for my area.

I hope you'll share photos of your flowers this summer.

What a beautiful dose of Spring! We're a long way off from daffodils and crocus ... but we're hopeful!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

It's been such a rough winter for so much of the U.S.! I'm glad we've been spared.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I agree.
