    We haven’t had much winter in NY, but I am craving spring. Sorry, winter I know it’s unfair. I just love foliage that much.


  2. Wow. Where do you live, John.

    Charlotte, NC. That stand of daffodils has reliably bloomed in Jan or Feb for at least 13 years. Wish I knew what the variety is.

    Lovely! Made me smile too! 🙂

    Daffodils always make me smile. Thank for sharing them John.


  6. Beautiful Okame cherries. Ours are just beginning to show color. I was in Columbia, SC, on Monday and Tuesday and it looked like spring there. The tulip magnolias were blooming, for goodness sake!

    What a treat! A break from all the white outside my window.


  8. We got two feet of snow today.

    What a sight! I far prefer your winter garden to mine, but the anticipation is always part of the excitement.


  10. So beautiful! All we have so far are the first nubs of the snowdrops coming up out of the ground.

    Such a beautiful time of the year… As long as it starts to warm up, right? 🙂
