First Spring Flowers


We are having really warm weather here in Michigan this week, it has been in the 70's every day. This is about 30 degrees above normal for this time of year. So we have the early arrival, by almost a month, of our spring flowers. The lenten roses are the first to arrive, sometimes coming up while there is still snow on the ground.



And everyones favorite little bulbs, crocuses ….





What's blooming in your garden?


Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a great St. Patty's Day!!





Linking to this week:
Macro Monday
Mosaic Monday
Pink Saturday

Our weather has been warm, hasn't it? I live down in the southeastern corner of Michigan - in Temperance. Did you get alot of storms where you are yesterday afternoon and evening? They were just awful here. It's so nice to see the sun this morning.

Such lovely blooms! And, I suppose, even more remarkable since they are so early, and shining forth in such unusually warm weather! Have a good weekend!

haiku my heart. it is a frenzy of visiting and the sharing of many from far and wide all brought together by a simple love of small words.
i hope you will pop over and see if it is a warm pool you might enjoy placing your toes in!
i am off to learn more about linden roses, so beautiful and i have never heard of them before,
thanks!

Just stunning images. I was snapping images of peach blossoms and lithodora ground cover this am. Then I cut grass. Now I need a nap but that is not happening. Have a terrific weekend sweetie!

Your flowers are beautiful, Laura. The picture of the purple ones are amazing. The petals are so delicate, and I can almost smell them from here.

Beautiful photos Laura! I don't have anything started yet. I purchased some marigolds that I need to repot. Starting very slowly here. We are supposed to have another cold front this coming week. The mulberry trees are taking there toll on the allergies.
Have a great weekend.
