{Crocus near our Vinyl Picket Fence}

Since the huge pine tree has been cut down and the big oak tree trimmed up there was lots of space now for planting more bulbs near the Vinyl Picket Fence. So husband Pieter put out some Crocus...
We had so much rain that it was difficult for capturing these yellow crocus on camera...
This is February 23 and it made us happy to finally see some color!
This is the view from our bay window in the kitchen and the yellow daffodils are also starting to bloom.
That crocus patch could even have been bigger!
Our grass looks all winter like that, so dreary and dead...
At least these crocus are happy flower bulbs and blooming for weeks on end.
Let's hope spring will pull through finally!
Happy new week to all of you.

      Any color after winter that starts blooming is pretty I guess!
      We had a lovely, warm and sunny day today.

      Thank you and yes, we do enjoy this perfect white vinyl picket fence backdrop for the crocus and right now the Japanese Magnolias. It really is spring here and that makes me smile all day. We went for a long walk in the sunshine! Sending you hugs and blessings and hope your snow will melt away soon.

  5. Che bell'angolo Mariette, vedere questi fiori deliziosi che formano delle macchie del colore del sole, fa capire che la primavera è vicina. I fiori sono un dono meraviglioso della natura, ci regalano bellezza e i colori sono un'iniezione di energia per noi, vero? Un abbraccio. Paola

  8. Lieve Mariette,

    Heerlijk jaargetijde wanneer de crocussen hun kopjes boven de grond uitsteken na een lange en natte wintertijd.Zag zaterdag onderweg tijdens het boodschappen doen de kleurrijke bloemtapijten in parken onder de dikke stammen van oude bomen en gemeente plantsoenen, yep......het is lente,ik voel het duidelijk aan mijn ogen.
    In den hof van de baron was het grasveld een witte smetteloze deken van sneeuwklokjes,die aanblik kan mij het meest ontroeren in het voorjaar.

    Lieve groet,Ger

      Jazeker, daar kijken we allemaal naar uit naar kleur in de tuin en iets levends. Zo begint het meestal en de rest volgt snel. Hier gaat het nu erg snel vooruit met de natuur met temperaturen van 24°C vandaag en zelfs 27°C en 28°C dinsdag, woensdag en donderdag mèt onweer zelfs!
      Zo'n tapijt van sneeuwklokjes is nauurlijk een ontzéttend mooie aanblik; geniet er van meid.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  10. Your crocus are very pretty. I love yellow-colored flowers. They look very cheerful :-)
    It's a very lovey match with yellow daffodils. Soon there will be lot of spring yellows and greens! We enjoyed warm weekend very much. Didn't reach 70s but it was high 60s. This week seems to be very rainy but after the rain, spring should be here :-) Have a wonderful week, Mariette!

      Thank you and yes, the color of our friend the sun is always a nice looking one; it brings joy!
      Today when I drove to Macon for therapy, I could see a lot of progress, the red leaves of the swamp maple and also white blossoms from the Prunus Americana, the wild plum. Next week there will be even more as it now moves very rapid with summer like temperatures close to 80s here. We will even get thunderstorms with that very warm weather and that will do the trick for nature!
      Enjoy your week as well and all its spring blossoms in your area.

  18. Bei Euch wachsen sie also auch die Krokusse, das freut mich sehr für Dich, liebe Mariette. Bei uns war es schon sehr frühlingshaft, aber heute regnet es leider auch wieder - wider aller Voraussagen, daß es nun durchgängig wochenlang schön bleibt. ;-)

      Ja, die Krokusse wachsen hier gut und ich mag sie auch immer da sie so früh sind.
      Wir hatten viel Regen weil die Krokusse blühten, vonwegen die Bilder nicht so schön aber seid Sonntag haben wir solch schönes Wetter und heute konnten wir spazieren gehen um 16:30u bei 28°C. Unglaublich so ein rascher Unterschied!
      Ich hoffe bei euch setzt der Frühling auch bald durch.

  20. Hello Mariette, Your yellow crocuses are very cheerful and springlike. In Taiwan, of course, we don't need flowers to break through the snow, but the Spring weather here can get awfully rainy, cold and gloomy. In fact, I was lucky to get a few breaks in the weather to go photograph the Lantern Festival last week!

    Hope you get some nice warm weather soon.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      No, in your region you sure don't need such cheerful flowers to start spring after a dull winter but I do remember the rather cold and gloomy days while living in Indonesia. Especially if you are in the mountains it can be very cold and without any heating in the homes, well, that makes you long for the USA! For photography it is so hard to make do during any wet period. For our crocus we too had to wait for days due to rain; hence a few buds already wilting away. But we cannot change nature and we all need the rain! We got very lovely weather the past couple of days!
      Sending you kindest regards,
      Mariette

  22. You've got pretty flowers coming out already. There aren't any flowers in Russia yet, neither greens. But the snow is totally melting. I was out today and was playing with puddles and enjoyed the sound of water drifting like a small river.

      Oh I know, like in Canada they still have snow on the ground but eventually that too will go away but we all are so impatient towards the end of winter...
