Oh, that was quite a long list!

I took some photos of my February garden today as well: lots of crocus, snowdrops, helleborus and more!

Have a great week-end!

Yolanda your photos are beautiful!! Carol's idea does sound like a good one! I have lots popping up their heads outside, but no blooms yet. Some are just waiting for the first warmer week. They just won't do much in sub-zero temps. haha. When my daughter was stationed in Germany she bought me tulips from the Netherlands. They have been beautiful. I transplanted some of them last fall and they are all up now.

Da blüht ja schon sehr viel bei dir. Gestern habe ich auch bei mir die erste blühende Osterglocke gesehen, hoffentlich wird es jetzt nicht mehr so kalt. Der Strauss in lila ist sehr hübsch.
Sorry, aber ich kann besser englisch lesen als schreiben ;-)
Have a nice weekend

I am fascinated by all the photographs you have posted. I wish I too could grow all those wonderful bulbs, but sadly the tempratures here do not support my wishes.

How extraordinary the Hellebores in the first photo. What a fine photo to put at the top. It was 38C here today (same tomorrow) and our flowers are fighting to survive. So it was great to seeing your cool climate blooms.

Thank you for being a part of bloom day! You have so many lovely flowers... it is snowing again here, I can't wait for spring!

By the way, I think you left me a comment, but I might have messed up trying to publish it. Sorry about that. If you try to add a comment again, I'll be more careful!
