Spring Flowers


Lately, it had felt as if winter had left us for the year.

Some of the bulbs have sprouted from the earth. 
A few leaves have begun their sleepy stretch. 

The feel of spring was so strong, I brought tulips and rananuculas home from the market the other day. 

I told the babies that it was time. 
It was time to think of spring. 

Time to dream of a warmer sunshine.
Flowers.
Bare feet.

Time to giggle over the sound crickets make at the end of a long summer day. 
Time to dream of fireflies dancing in the night.  

Officially, it is still winter, and this morning we woke to sleet and very cold rain.
But our hearts are singing spring. 

And even little soft tweets of summer.

That is really a poem. So lovely!

I bought some freesias last week and they lasted a really long time, which I wasn't expecting. The buds opened, too, and the scent was amazing, nothing like freesia perfumes I've tried before.

Take good care,

Em

Thank-you. After spending 5 nights in the hospital with my daughter, I need something springy. Lovely to bring spring early to one's home and heart.

Lovely photo. It has been so warm here - hovering around freezing for several weeks. So it is feeling so springlike!! Yet I am sure there is more winter ahead. I did wake up to birds chirping on Sunday morning though and wondered if maybe spring has really started...

I had that feeling today too, in Chicago. It think it was the angle of the morning sun. It was beaming golden promises of summertime -- so much so that I don't even mind that it's going to snow for the next two days. It's just winter giving us one last kiss goodbye. : )

Great photo of your pretty flowers-spring is less than a month away so we can make it, what choice do we have?
Your photo helps look forward to what is coming.
Have a good week

That is so beautiful a wonderful addition to your home. Although I do believe we still have some winter left, spring would be welcomed soon.

Beautiful addition to your home, and a spring day would be nice although I do believe winter is still here and still very cold.

Beautiful bouquet!

I agree, Trina! I awoke to another snowfall this morning - wasn't "supposed" to hit until this tomorrow but it appears I will be snowbound for now. I posted a couple of times last week about Spring. I can't wait! Your flowers are beautiful...

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Tina, I am so ready for spring too! Your beautiful bouquet makes me long for flowers!

I love spring because it signals a new beginning. I love to cherish the past and look to the future. Great post!

Madge Bloom said...

Lovely bouquet... it seems many of us are posting about spring... with longing!

Mom said...

So true.....we have 65 degree days and then highs of 35......rain and snow today but the buds on the big old pear tree are growing bigger every day and the daffodil greenery is all up.

All winter I've been cutting big bouquets of magnolia and nandina with the lovely berry bunches....and buying handfulls of tulips and alstromeria - just to keep things cheery inside.

Jealous as I'd kill for some more cold down south. We didn't get any snow down here. :(

I LOVE the colors of the flowers you have!
Also, I love the "talk of the town" that sping is here! :)
Looking forward to that I must say. Mye garden is full of snow, even though the temperature is warmer now, and the snow has started to melt. Thank heaven.. haha:)

Looking forward to spring, having the house finished so that I can furnish it, and of course.. lokking forward to having my baby girl outside my belly:)

Have a beautiful sping-week:)
Love, Line(Norway)
