A grouping of Chionodoxa and Puschkinia poked out of my flowerbeds in a rare sunny moment last week. Unfortunately, further blooms in my garden have been arrested by the cold and freezing drizzle that has been falling on and off for the past three days. I can completely relate – the weather makes me want to go back to bed, too. 😉
I hope you have a relaxing Saturday! Do you have any plans to get out into your garden this weekend?

Sheryl I had plans but the cold and rain are keeping me out so no work still in the garden and it needs to be cleaned up badly. Feeling glum today.
Oh…I really hope the sun came out for you! You more than deserve it! Here, the snow and rain lasted all weekend, but now the sun is peeking out a little for us. Things are looking up! 🙂
Lovely flowers Sheryl. I’m sulking indoors this weekend… still bitter cold out there, and grey too. Not enticing and my garden is still asleep anyway! I sowed my tomatoes though this week… hope the window sill is warm enough! Hope you have a sunny weekend!
Hopefully you had some sunshine come your way as well…it seems that this gloomy weather is everywhere right now! Happy to hear that you started your tomatoes, that’s always a cheery thing to do! 🙂 Do you plant mostly cherry tomatoes?
A mix of cherry, plum, and beefsteak – a bit of everything and all new sorts to try! 😀
Sounds wonderful! You’ll have to keep us all posted on how things go over the summer! 🙂
We walked out for supper last night, thru the snow and slush and wind….I think I got in a time machine and accidentally arrived back in February, I hope your other early arrivers survive.
I know, it’s been crazy, hasn’t it? I so loved your “Think Green” post – that sums it all up beautifully! We just have to believe! 🙂
I just got back from a garden techniques class and after checking email and a few blogs will head out to resume spring clean up!
I’m so happy to hear from someone who is actually able to work in their garden…it’s nice to know that spring is actually happening SOMEWHERE! Hope you had a great weekend!
Aren’t these the most precious flowers? I hadn’t heard of the Puschkinia, will definitely need to get some of those. Thank you so much for the pingback. Bella
You’re very welcome! I love the little Puschkinia, too, they are simply adorable.
I mowed my fathers and grandmother’s yards for them. I will mow mine tomorrow. I hope the sun comes out for you and your flowers soon!
You’ve been busy! Hope you had a nice weekend! 🙂 It will be awhile before anyone does any mowing here…. I did notice before the snow came again, that the lawns are greening up ever so slightly. That’s certainly encouraging!
Your blog posts always fascinate me. It is enlightening to learn about the plants encountered regularly on mountain trails. This spring has been focussed on trail still covered with snow but soon the wild flowers will be putting on another spectacular display. BTW – Thanks for your link to Elkwood Snowshoe. And thanks for sharing your specific knowledge. It is bringing a new dimension to my wanderings. Just wish the memory was better.
Thank you, Barry! I’m not much of a spring hiker – I don’t really have the right gear for it at the moment – so I’m awaiting the arrival of good weather to get out to the mountains again. I’m really looking forward to checking out some of the places you’ve written about! I greatly enjoyed my foray into snowshoeing – that is definitely something I will do more of next year. I am planning to purchase snowshoes, rather than renting them, and I’ve already made a list of “newbie” trails in K-Country. Your posts are inspirational!
Have faith, spring has come to parts of the country and it is slowly rolling out to everyone.
I definitely need to “cultivate” patience! 🙂 Thank you so much for checking out Flowery Prose! You have a huge range of articles on Seattle Trekker – I am looking forward to reading more of them. Great work!
