I realized in the other thread about what we were doing right now that some of us are already out in the garden and some of us can only dream about what we'll do when the time comes for the snow to melt. I thought maybe those of us with more southern gardens could start sharing what is blooming to help our northern neighbors hold onto hope of things to come.

I took just a couple of shots of early spring bloomers that are blooming right now. The snow we just had (about 3 or 4 inches depending on who measures it) melted and none of the flowers seemed the worse for the cold. It was too wet to go any further or I would have had a few more flowers to show, like the candytuft that has been blooming since December and show no sign of stopping!












There are several bigger daffodils blooming but the ones above are miniatures that are about 6 inches as are the Iris reticulata and the Siberian Squill. The scabiosa has been blooming nonstop since 2 years ago. In the summer the flowers are on much longer stems but right now they are barely past the leaves.

Lovely pictures. Can't wait for spring. Just yesterday said need to be seeing some flowers and not at a shelf in the store. Scabiosa is one of my favorite flowers, love the color. Mine never look that good. Love the daffodils too, and the Iris and the squill. Oh my I love all flowers.

I have croci!

Of course, at the moment they're covered with snow. But by the time I get home, the snow will have melted ... and that's when you know spring is on the way! LOL
