Spring 2011

Yellow & White Crocus and Narcissus 'Tete-a-Tete'

Spring has arrived in the garden with the early bloomers of Crocus and miniature Narcissus.  I’ve been rather busy for the past month or so with family stuff, but I did manage to take a few pics of the garden.  Hope everyone is having a nice weekend! 🙂

  1. What a welcome sight! We have several inches of snow on the ground, but the current temp is 33, so the thaw is beginning. The daffodils right to the south of the house are up, so the rest should be on their way up.

    Yep they always remind me that spring is arriving here soon. Glad we don’t have any snow here but we did last year and it soon thawed and in two weeks time the garden was in starting to pop. Hope you thaw soon Sue. 🙂


  2. I love seeing crocuses! Spring is here!

    Yep I always forget those tiny treasures until they bloom every February. 🙂


  3. Nice, Racquel! I was outside today cutting down the perennials and my husband was raking out the beds and we noticed lots of daffodils and bulbs beginning to pop up. Not quite time for flowers, just yet…but it will be a welcome sight when they arrive! Seeing yours makes me realize it won’t be too long now, since we’re just a little behind you!

    I need to do that soon too Jan, I have lots of sticky balls from our old Sweetgum Tree to rake up. Better get on that soon huh? Happy Spring Jan! 🙂


  4. Welcome back!

    Thanks Les, it’s good to be back! 🙂


  5. thought of you today as I checked on the Phlox you gave me. Glad you are back. Great spring photos.

    Thanks for thinking of me Janet, hope that Phlox ‘Robert Poore’ does well for you this summer. 🙂


  6. Beautiful signs of spring. I was just thinking about you yesterday when I was looking at my Society Garlic, Nope, I haven’t forgotten.

    Thanks Darla for thinking of me. I know you haven’t forgotten, but I did. lol 😉


  7. Good morning Racquel, It’s so good to know you are doing well and your garden is blooming. The crocuses are so sweet!

    Thanks Tina, yep another spring is arriving and I’m so excited to be back in the garden soon. 🙂


  8. So nice to have you back, Racquel! And it’s so good to see your cheery crocuses and narcissus. We’re still a few weeks away from spring here, but I’m getting excited.

    Thanks Rose, it’s good to be back. This is just the beginning of what’s to come this season in the garden. 🙂


  9. I haven’t been out to see what is trying to come up in our yard. The snow last week made it feel like spring is far off. Your crocus and narcissus do make me think that spring will get here. I am going to have to go out and see if there is anything coming to life in our garden, if I get a break from rain.

    It would be hard to think of spring with snow on the ground that’s for sure. Hope you find some surprises when you go out to look. 🙂


  10. Hi Racquel! Nice to see you around. 🙂

    Your garden is further ahead then mine (like always). I can’t wait to see the daffodils & crocus here. I hope it won’t be long. I have ‘Blue Lady’ & ‘Red Lady’ hellebores (from your current post) but not blooming yet either. I’m getting pretty excited for stuff to start happening outside. Enjoy your beautiful spring bulbs.

    Hi Kathleen, it’s good to be back. Hope you don’t have to wait much longer for your spring blooms. I wanted the ‘Red Lady’ for my collection, have to jot that down to remind myself to order it. 😉
