Come on, spring...Tulips coming up in the front yard, along with the lawn getting green. Hope to see it happening soon. All those tulips (105 of 'em) cost me a total of 12 cents plus tax. .02 a pack. Can't beat that with a stick. : ) All 105 came up and bloomed, too. Amazing... Yep, I counted 'em.

lol Don I keep reminding myself that you came from SFV and now live in Colorado. That is amazing they all bloomed. I have been waiting with this photo until just the right time. I am ready for spring.

Maggie posing in the spring garden. I can wait for spring. Last year everything was up and we had a sharp freeze and snow in May followed by a 100 degree day. The year before spring came six weeks early and a lot of things didn't bloom at all. Just give me a nice, normal, fairly wet spring with no big temperature swings this year, please.

RE: For those longing for spring...

Phil, I always love seeing your gardens/woods. Getting to see everyone else's sprng shots, too, is such a treat.

A plethora of Petunias is always beautiful in spring.

Its very inspiring to see the spring gardens. I'm envious of the success you all seem to have with bulbs. In spite of feeding and letting the foliage die on it's own, most of mine seem to diminish. When I see pictures like this I always thing I should try again. The minor bulbs like snowdrops and crocus do just fine but tulips fade away and daffodils often don't even come up. In spite of that I love the spring. Two months until these pictures begin seems survivable.

How about a spring-blooming Clem?

Very nice, Fnnthsun. Room for one more?

RE: For those longing for spring...

Don't feel bad about the tulips, Mctavish. There are only a few that come back and multiply. Almost all of them just fade away in a few years. Try the tiny, early daffodils like Jack Snipe or Tete-a-tete. Mine have multiplied like crazy; I really should dig and divide them.

My yellow witch hazel Hamamelis is always the first plant to bloom in spring, here in March. Bernd

I figured the way to beat the winter blahs was to post multiple pictures of spring... A close-up and then I'm done...thanks for indulging me...

Your 'Going Bananas' blossoms are beautiful, Jo. 'First Frost' and 'Halcyon' await spring 2014.

Thank you, Sir Guacamole! :-)

Ahhhh....The creeping jenny ground cover sure is a bright foil to the hosta, especially when in flower....have it, love it! I am also admiring the uprightness of your First Frost....mine grows lower. I like yours. Gorgeous picture and play on colour.

RE: For those longing for spring...

Hi folks, just checking in to see what everyone is up to. Beautiful pictures. Made me think of some of the plants I left at the old house. I moved some rhodos, azaleas, tree peonies, clematis and related plants. Waiting for spring to see what survived. Very windy here by the harbor, some have tipped over, had to put rocks to hold them down.LOL Hope everyone's garden survives the winter, looking at the pictures, all I can say is come on Spring!!!!
