Reminders of Springs Past

 

Birdhouse by Jean Long

I’ve always wondered what this bird is saying — atop one of Jean Long’s clever bird feeder creations. (“Time for more food!”)

I love the purple globes of giant Allium.

The Weigela is so soaked, its branches are almost touching the ground.

And, below, the gorgeous purple-blue pansy.

Happy Spring, everyone. We’ve had rain, grey skies, and the stream out back has turned into a rushing river. But I’ll take it: Welcome, Spring!

  1. so lovely – especially the rain-drenched moments. but all of them are so cheerful. spring here on the west coast is about a month later than last year, but there are hopeful signs such as blossoms about to pop on the Japanese cherry trees, and the daffodils have taken over where the snowdrops left off. the poor snowdrops were literally snowbound for quite some time, very unusual here.
     
    but no more. it is definitely spring. thanks for sharing these colours. am looking forward to enjoying more spring colours here too. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh, Cynthia – I keep waiting and waiting for Spring to be here. I see some daffodils here and there, but not nearly enough sunshine. Can’t wait for it to finally green up and look like your lovely garden. Cheers!

  3. Three cheers for Hamilton and Spring!! The Yellow Tabebuia are in full bloom here.

  4. It’s nice to see the flowers. We just had 2 days of snow but little accumulation.

  5. I love all these spring flowers, Cynthia! They can brighten up the darkest day!

  6. Love that Rose Breasted Grosbeak. They sometimes pass by here in early spring. Happy Spring! We are already transitioning to summer with temperatures in the 80’s.

  7. Oh such beautiful colours, Cynthia. Happy Spring to you xxx

  8. Such lovely reminders of springs past! I hope your post encourages spring to hurry up and start springing!

  9. Enjoyed these garden photos immensely. Lovely, lovely!!

    Lovely, lovely, and oh, that pansy! I’ve never seen one in that shade of blue, which is definitely Maya blue.

  13. Gail

    Lovely, beautiful post! Happy Spring Cynthia!!!

  14. Are these current photos? Wow–everything is so perfect and lush!

  15. It’s lovely to look back on those that have passed and have the re-assurance of the beauty of the spring to come.

  16. Every picture reminds me to appreciate the little things even when spring is my least favorite season. We have had nothing but rain and grey skies for weeks. I may need to build an ark for my animals soon as their pastures and areas around the yard are filled with water!!

  17. You had me at the forget-me-nots. The blue pansy was just an added bonus! Spring, spring is in the air . . .

  18. Wonderful images Cynthia .. what allium is that would you know? Would it be society garlic? Is it early? Sorry for all these questions πŸ˜ƒ

  19. Tes photos sont magnifiques. C’est comme si j’y Γ©tais. Le printemps est si beau et nous offre tant de perspectives et de force πŸ˜‰ Merci de le partager avec nous

  20. Lovely photos…they remind me of all the wonderful springs that I spent in New England. It was my favorite season.

  21. A beautiful trip down memory lane, dear Cynthia, thanks for taking me along. What kind of bird is this? Most unusual to my European eyes, a bit like a magpie perhaps? Wishing you a great spring x
