My Garden is Alive!


Time to start surveying my spring flowers ~~~


 Double Snowdrops are multiplying like crazy,
even more so than the single.
Is that possible?


The crocii are volunteering everywhere
especially in the walkway,


and  under the azalea bushes.


I particularly enjoy laying in the walkway 
amongst the crocii
just in case the guys decide to go for a drive.
Keeping an eye on the car is part of my responsibilities, you know.


I truly enjoy this crocus...


and I take extra special care not to trample the little feller.
They are so pretty dotting the landscape.
I love crocus!

  1. Your spring flowers looks lovely, Sophie! It's very cold, windy, and spitting mean little grains of snow here! But I'm curled up in front of the fire with Terry watching Survivor! Have a good one!

    1. Your weather sounds like our February weather ~~~ but a fire with Survivor nothing better ~~~ we'll see it tonight because we PVR'd it since we went out to Owen's house last night ~~~ Owen (English Setter)has all grown up since we saw him in Dec.
      I'll be posting on him ~~~ so much fun!

  2. I noticed today that irises are just now starting to send up green shoots through the soil in our front flower bed. Could Spring be almost here?

    1. Most definitely, Debra !!!!!!!!

      The green shoots are the best to see when winter needs to be gone!

    1. I planted the double Snowdrops many years ago and they ended up being covered by other vegetation, so I moved them into a sunnier vista and now they SMILE on us continually!

  8. It's very exciting, isn't it? There are plants popping up all over the place and it won't be long before the trees are full of leaves. Your spring flowers are very lovely and I look forward to more photos of your garden as the weeks go by!

    1. The chill set upon us again today, but I can handle it

      The flowers seem to last longer when the NW winds descend.

      Sun coming back to see us on the week end!!

      At the end of the day is when I enjoy capturing 'macro' pictures of the flowers!

    Y'all come by now,
