Weekly Winners: March 23-29

Spring has totally sprung around here.

Not that we suffer like people in snow country, because really it's greenish here most of the time (unless it's brown, but that's another story).

But for Lotus' Weekly Winners meme today, I present the signs of rebirth from a walk through my neighborhood.

A little splash of yellow:



A new life:



I'm beginning to see the light:



Poppies ...:



A winter casualty:



Purple haze:



There WILL be roses:



Now go here to see more talented photographers than I am ...

The purple haze flowers are so beautiful, they almost look artificial. Beautiful photos!!!

I'm still waiting, waiting, waiting. Just green grass here so far. Don't we have any March flowers other than at the lawn and garden show?

Rebecca said...

They are all so great - but I think I love the poppy one best. Can't wait to see the roses!

They all were great, but my favorite was the poppy. Can't get that color anywhere else.

What are those purple haze flowers? Is that their actual name? I love them!

Beautiful! Just breath taking!

These are gorgeous. We have the crocus - the daffodils are starting. We will not have roses or lilacs (my favorite), ever, because we only get about 3 hours of full sun a day. We will have tulips. No flowering fruit trees, but we do have a couple of dogwoods and redbuds that are showing signs of life.
