52

Nope, not my age.



52 degrees today.




A whole lot of melting...



…and sprouting….




…and chirping.


There are tiny signs of life….


…miniature masterpieces that only nature could concoct….


….a mound of daffodils here...
 ….an iris tuber there….


….even the neighborhood was livening up today!



There will be LOTS to clean and rake….



….but that will be later…probably in a few weeks….2 more snowstorms headed our way this week….



but shhhhh…don't tell the lilacs….


…they have budded up so prettily….I cannot wait!

Rescued

 I bought this amaryllis after Christmas.

It was sitting on the shelf at Target and it was literally growing out of the cover of the box.



There were LOTS of them, but at 5.99 a pop on sale (in a nice pot), I opted for ONE.


I kept my fingers crossed, especially because the bud sack was formed, and squished.

It grew 5 inches tall and put out 2 amazing flowers.


And then, a second stalk shot up.


2 feet up.


We guessed 2 flowers again….


We were wrong…and boy are we glad!


It had 4 vibrant red buds….


…which became 4 AMAZING flowers….




The last 2 are still opening….so much fun to watch...


nature at its finest….I mean check out those stamens!!!!



Now that's JOY :)

Playing with Flowers

Oh how I miss playing with flowers…..


….I miss their vibrance...


…I miss their scent….


….I miss what they represent…life and nature….


….I miss gathering up a menagerie of blossoms and bringing them
into the house….or just enjoying the site of them in the garden…a perennial border sitting just inside the boundary of the veggie garden….offering us a gallery of artists
each day of the growing season….


But alas….I have taken to gathering from my winter garden...


….blossoms that have lingered across the seasons….


I have been playing with flowers.
