Color in my yard

My little green buddies have bloomed in the last week. Here's the proof!






If you look closely you can see daffodils starting to come up.

Wow, squirl. Your crocuses just look absolutely gorgeous!

What beautiful photos. And it is such a joy to see spring flowers coming up. :-)

Hi, Danielle, are you back from your trip? Thank you! Yes, I love the spring flowers so much, too. Looks like you guys got hit with some nasty weather again. Hope it's getting warmer for you there now.

Veddy nice! I even raked the leaves off of my little green buddies. So, maybe I'll get lilies again this year.

Oh yay -- it's finally Spring for you, too!! So glad to see it! I absolutely adore crocus -- they're just the perfect harbinger of the season change, so bright, so small, so determined.

Your crocuses are so cute! I love when there are different colors all together. I always think the flowers look so big for such a small plant.

Eclectic, exactly! They're so beautiful to see after so many months of winter weather.

Chia, you're welcome!

Jenski, the crocuses on one side are the little ones. But the purple and white ones are huge!

The only colors in my yard are white and brown. :(
Our temps are supposed to be in the 50s all week, so maybe we'll see a few blades of green grass sprouting in the slop.

I love crocuses because they bloom so early. But, they're gone too soon. :(

tshsmom, I'll cross my fingers for you. :-)

Tweety, thanks! Those are crocuses. You plant bulbs in the fall and they're the first to bloom in the spring.

Courtney, I know. I'm glad I got pictures when I did. They're going already. Of course, the hyacinths, daffodils, and tulips are working on it right now!

I got back on Sunday. When I commented, I was sitting on my bed in the hotel room, winding down for the night. :-)

Lady, thanks! So nice to see you here. :-)

Judy, that's so sweet. What a wonderful way to remember your husband.

Danielle, I'm glad your conference went well. :-)

So pretty. My favourite part is that little punch of orange in the centre. So springy.

Judy, yes, they really are special because they're first. Yes, that's a fly. I tried to get pictures of a bee, but they were all blurred, darn it.
