Spring has sprung across Wisconsin today, It was almost hot, it was 80 degrees here today! I thought I would go ahead and share some of the spring pictures that I've taken this week.

Purple Crocus, I've been waiting 3 years for these to bloom! I planted them from a force pot of spring flowers I got 3 years ago, I guess the finally got the strength to bloom.

lilac leaves

weeping willow leaves

here is a picture of an old kind of Daffodil that I got from my moms house last Spring, They were in a old planting, and hardly even bloomed. They were in desperate need of seperation! I just put them in the ground and what do you know they bloomed!

Those look great. Don't you just love spring?! When I parked my car last night I noticed buds on the lilacs also.

Yes jungseed, I do love Spring! Last week the Daffodils mainly just had buds, now this week there all blooming on the south side of my house!

Here is my collection on the South side. most of these were given to me! my aunt was taking a part a garden, and she didn't want these!

here is a close up, The Yellow ones actully were actually bought at a local store last year for easter, I put the pot in all half in the ground to hold them up. I had forgotten about them and they lasted the entire winter party exposed to the cold. I actually planted them in the ground this spring.
