Too bad it is not a sign the winter is ending early. Just wishful thinking on my part.

The red of this bud is even more enhanced against that blue sky!
I hope you don't get a really cold spell now.

Oh, lovely how the sky is so clear too! The buds will surely thrive! Have a nice week!

Carolyn Ford said...

That will be a beauty soon, if not killed by more cold weather...the blue sky is great too.

OH OH! I guess I should be happy that it hasn't been that warm here in Ontario. :)

That's an early sight! Poor ol' winter is in the midst of an identity crisis, I think.

Beautiful red in that.

UhOh :(
Guess they'll have to pay for it when the next frost hits :(

Carver--love the bud against the sky. My honeysuckle vine has buds like this right now. I want to get out and try to take a few photos.

I pulled out my seeds today and started sorting out a few things to start (very early) indoors. I know it's too early, but starting seeds makes me feel like spring is almost here.

I think I'll start poppies (the ones that produce poppy seeds for breads and cakes--I've never successfully grown them from seed, but I keep trying) and maybe some carrots.

We really haven't had winter this year. Unlike last year when we were buriend in snow. This year when we need it for the Olympics the snow is not where it should be.

I saw the beginning of the tulips in my window boxes yesterday....I cant' believe it...well I can...we have had temps in the 13 and 14 celcius most of the winter..that is just crazy....

Ayie said...

some trees already bloomed here with white flowers...early spring =)

Hugs and blessings,

you should see my plants in FL look like they should be dug out and put to rest, I am gonna wait a bit I think they will come out ini the Spring or when we get warmer weather. The winter freeze was not good for them

I hope you won't get a cold snap and ruin the flowers. It happen in New Zealand a lot.
