Spring Color

 Hello everyone,
       I hope you are having a good week. I have been doing some spring cleaning and organizing lately so that I will be able to enjoy time in the garden as soon as it warms up a little bit. So in the meantime I made a few spring collages for you to enjoy.

 I am happy to say that it warmed up enough the last couple of days to melt a lot of the snow in our garden and I have been enjoying seeing hundreds of daffodils,tulips etc coming up. I love taking a daily walk around to see the changes in the garden as the snow melts off the beds. It is so encouraging knowing good things are about to happen. It looks like the garden came though the winter pretty good. All the snow is good protection from the cold and our temperatures did not dip as low as some past winters.
 Anyway, I hope you enjoyed some spring color and soon I hope to have some actual garden spring color.

Thank you for visiting,

Pretty colourful post..I am glad you are having warmer weather. Our snow is almost gone but I don't see any plants poking thru as of yet. We are heading to Victoria on Saturday so looking forward to staying at the Fairmont Empress Hotel (built 1912 I think) on the harbour. Have a good evening!

Carolyn ~ your collages are lovely again ~ they make me smile. My tulips are coming up and I am sooo excited ;-)

Susan said...

Hello Carolyn...Thoroughly enjoyed all the awesome photographs. Great job! Carolyn, HOW do you keep squirrels from digging up the daffodils? I poured my hot pepper brew and today I looked and they STILL dug up a bulb. Hot squirrels! I was shocked. Please tell me your secret to keeping the squirrels out. Thanks. Susan

Good morning Carolyn,
Your photos are lovely and coming here this morning was just what I needed. Company and then a flu bug has left me feeling rather yucky most of the week. I'm glad you're able to get out and work on your garden. It won't be long now!
