A Promise of Spring

I am so behind this year on my garden clean up that I almost missed the crocus and snowdrops. The weather this year has been so wet and gloomy it was hard to get motivated to get out there. I'm still not done, but have got a good start. My mind is already moving plants here and there. Now all I have to do is wait for things to dry up abit and get my husband to help...

Very nice backlighting giving color to the glass. I like the almost monochromatic look of the photo with just touches of color on the glass and base of petals.

Beautiful photo of snowdrops. I read through some of your blog, and you mentioned a garden tour on Quadra Island that you did with a friend. I live in Comox, so we probably are dealing with the same weather, pests, etc. in our gardens.

I was out shoveling today! I am jealous of real flowers. Our cleanup doesn't begin until April, and then there is still a lot of mud.

Those early signs of Spring are so invigorating. I have magnolia and cherry blossom here in London and have seen bees at work! Bees!!

This is an awesome photo.
I hope I'll be thinking the same thing as you in a few weeks. So sick of the winter!

And what a nice shot this is! the delicate snowdrops, the blue glas, the light and contrasts, just wonderful!

Same here Sandy it's so wet and gray outside that my garden is a swamp at the moment.

I can't wait for spring to arrive. Our gardens in Ontario are still covered in snow, however we do have lots of birds busy in the gardens.
