Spring Thing

Hello and Happy Sunday to you

Kirsty has picked "Spring Thing" for the prompt this week at


Unfortunately Spring has been delayed here where I live... I was looking back on last year's photos and everywhere was so much more colourful 


We do however have amazing displays of Daffodils ... They're blooming not only in the gardens but in virtually every park and highway that we pass


The blossom is slowly starting to appear coaxed by the spells of sunshine but winter is clinging - outstaying her welcome


 Cold nights, cool days and raindrops that leave the winter pansies bowing their heads

But there are some Spring surprises to come... The tulips my dear friend Stella sent from The Netherlands are awaiting her arrival ... 


They have decided not to open until she is here... only 10 days to go



 
And look at this


This makes me smile because it's my lilac tree - My Mum loved lilacs and this always makes me think of her but last year I didn't get one single flower on that tree


But I can already see the purple flowers peeking out ... Oh yes! We are having lilacs this year, so Spring you are forgiven for being a little tardy and we are waiting to welcome you with open arms

Till soon

~ Ros ~

Ah, such lovely photos of spring, Ros! Spring is delayed here, too. We got about 4 inches of snow yesterday. I'm looking forward to seeing my yellow tulips bloom. I can only hope spring will be here soon!😀

I probably already said this, but my mom loved lilacs, too, & so do I! Mine have very few flowers & every time I pass some I'm tempted to stop & see if the owners will sell me some! Oh wow--those tulips are going to be gorgeous when Stella arrives, I bet--you'll have to show us some pictures! Wishing you a wonderful week, Ros! Hugs, Greta
