Spring Flowers and Some New Books


We went to (2) spring flower shows over the past week and it sure helped with the "enough snow already doldrums". In case you need a spring pick me up, here's a few of the pictures I took.






























Now about New Books which arrived at my doorstep.

  1. Those flowers are so bright and cheerful! Love them and thanks for sharing with us! I've always loved tulips, but they don't grow well here. Bet attending those shows was a lot of fun.

  3. Love those flowers, especially the colorful hyacinths! We had a bit of snow yesterday but now are not expected to have any more for at least this week, so that's good news. Ironically February into March has been the most snow all winter, no white Christmas.

    Haven't heard of your books, so thanks for sharing them.

  4. I'm ready for flowers. Our azaleas have tried to bloom twice and, both times, the cold go to them.

    Your books look good, especially The Eight Mountains. Enjoy!

  6. Lovely flowers! There are daffodils blooming in our neighborhood right now. I need to go for a long walk and get some pictures. I am so glad winter is almost over.

  12. WOW! Those are some gorgeous flowers. We've had an unusual amount of rain here in the Phoenix area, so we should eventually have some beautiful Spring flowers popping out. I'm happy with the clouds and rain, though. It's a nice change!
