Signs of Spring

Hello and Happy February!!
Is it cold? It sure is here

It's my turn to pick this week's prompt at


The prompt I have picked is kind of wishful thinking it's
Signs of Spring



Nothing says it better than these gorgeous flowers... This is a birthday bouquet that my dear Aunt sent to me and because of the upheaval here I put them in the conservatory ... It's so cold in there that my bouquet is as fresh today as it was when it arrived!

It may be cold but there are signs around that warm my heart and make me look forward to the days to come


Beneath the icy exterior daffodil bulbs are working their magic and the shoots are beginning to appear
I adore Daffodils ... I think they are just so cheerful


It never ceases to amaze me how such delicate things even snowdrops and crocus can force their way through the hardest of soil


It won't be long before these are in bloom and their sunny smile fills the garden ... Here in my part of the UK Daffodils are planted virtually everywhere ... fields of hope for cancer ... even the central reservations and embankments are full of them
And there are other signs too if you care to look


Though the trees look like they are dead and gone ... Spring is stirring, birds are singing and I am counting the days.....

Have a beautiful day

Beautiful post Ros....I love spring and so miss it but do remember them as a kids and picking the wild snowdrops. Your spring birthday bouquet is lovely and I bet that's a cheery spot in your conservatory. Have a wonderful week Robyn

''I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils...''

Beautiful, Ros!

There's new life on every corner... but it looks like more snow is coming our way. And for now, I can handle it - but that can change any day!

Gorgeous photo's Ros, I love the new things coming up. My paper whites have been up forever and only three have bloomed, but the hyacinths are beginning to peek through! Hope you had a wonderful Sunday!

Your beautiful photos gave me hope of knowing that someday I might see "sprouts" of green again...after we just received 2 feet of snow, I need all the help I can get. The gorgeous, gorgeous fresh flowers, just make me happy to see them, I should run to the grocery and buy me some!! As always, I enjoyed your post!!
