I'm having a snow day, so your blooms made my day!

Betsy Adams said...

Wow--your flowers are GORGEOUS. There's not much blooming up here now (other than our little pansies --which are 'trying' to make it through the winter)... SO--it is wonderful to see your beautiful color today.

Hugs,
Betsy

Oh Wow Lorraine! Gorgeous, gorgeous. Just what I needed to see on this gloomy rainy day. I love the gardenias.

Mission accomplished, Lorraine! It gave a me lot of joy to look at your flowers, today, especially because my garden is kind of bare in the moment. Thanks for this lovely post!

Winter roses are so delicate looking. I've been doing light pruning on my roses, mostly dead wood.

Winter isn't over, here. I'm sure of it despite narcissus and hyacinths in full bloom and azaleas showing color. A freeze will slip back in as soon as the storms pass through.

Wonderful, Lorraine. Thank you.

We had ten inches of snow here so far and it's still coming down, so it was wonderful to see these blooms! They brightened my day, Rainey.
