Juanita and Friends Have Arrived

It isn't spring, but it's close. The awful cold we had in January seems to have made the daffodils better than ever. I have no new bulbs. Old bulbs look wonderful.

Ice Follies. Some Ice Follies are in bloom and fading here. Others are just now budding.

Taiwan Cherry

'Leonard Messell' magnolia

Some of us are busier than others.


  1. Magnolia? Cherry? Already? Well, it means we'll have spring this year, ha-ha! Daffodils are lovely!

  2. Oh That cherry is glorious! What an amazing splash of colour! I love the Cher of daffodils and the beauty of magnolias.

  3. Another spring is arriving.

    I admire how you know the daff varieties. Most of mine came in a large order from White Flower Farm and were not individually labeled others I have long forgotten the names.

    The cherry is a gorgeous thing!

    It is a busy time of year.

  4. Ooooohhhh, thank you for showing your spring beauties. That cherry is so pretty, and I always love your daffs.

  5. Neal Jean,

    The cherry is beautiful and the magnolia is a great photo for sure. The other dafs can't be far behind. We have a handful of buds on our dafs right now.

  6. The Ice Follies caught my eye. I planted some last fall, but it's going to be a while before I see them because we had 12" of snow over the weekend and there's NO melting going on out there.

    I never, ever tire of seeing daffodil photos, so please continue to share.


  7. Every bloom makes me more anxious for spring to arrive here. No daffodil blooms yet, but it won't be long! Looks like your spring is well on its way.

  8. Juanita and her friends are gorgeous! We got a little bit of snow last night in the DC area, so your pictures are my taste of spring for the day.

    Thanks so much for the comment you left with the names of the daylilies. I mostly garden in containers, and I think I'd love to have some pretty daylilies around my deck this spring.

  9. I'm hoping for daffodils by Easter, and your post is encouraging.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
