Spring Has Returned


The flower buds on the red bud trees look freeze dried.
The flower buds on the lilacs look like some are damaged but not all.

Here are some of the flowers buried in the snow yesterday.

I set my rain barrels back up as there is rain in the forecast Thursday night/Friday.
Temperatures are predicted above freezing after tonight.

Here's to spring............again!


  1. We are expecting another frost tonight...can you even believe it!! Our usual last frost date is 4/15. Very, very unusual. Out come the flannel sheets again!!

  2. Oh, so glad to hear that.
    Happy Spring!

  3. How sweet to hear the birds chirping behind your lovely voice. I'm glad to see that spring looks to be really there for you now.

  4. Beautiful! I think snow is good very several plants. Slow released water. And the exposure time to freeze....if it's short, like a few hours, it should be okay. Can't wait to see what you do to your place this year:)

  5. Hope it sticks around. Your cold weather has now hit us. Brrrr

  6. It's been a long winter hasn't it? It looks as though things are fighting back at last in your garden though. The white tulips are lovely.

  7. It has been a long wait this year, but I do have things starting to perk up also.

  8. Here, too! Spring has come and gone so many times I've lost track. Flowers, birds, and humans are equally confused, I think...

  9. My northern friends sure are having a long winter. I sent some sunshine up to Canada I will have it stop by you place on its way.

  11. Oh your tulips are so lovely! Glad to see you are getting some blooms to brighten your days now. Have a wonderful weekend.

  12. Spring plants seem to be used the fluctuation in weather! Hoping for warm temps for you!

  13. I hope spring is here to stay for you! Tulips are pretty hardy flowers; your white ones are lovely!

  14. What a wild ride you've had! How has this affected your drought status? Tulips are tough. I'm glad yours are still blooming. :o)

    1. We move from worst to next to worse. Ha! It's gotta break sometime! I'm impressed with my tulips. Need to plant more next fall!

  15. We have had and up and down this year. The tulips are pretty. I just do not have the space. Looking good.

  16. Everything is looking up. Love the tulips.
