Spring Holds a Promise of Warmth

The earliest of flowers are beginning to bloom.  These cheerful little blue beauties grow close to the ground.

The owner of these tulips said he got these a couple of years ago when he was in Amsterdam.  Earlier in the day, they had been open up wide.  At this time of the day, the sky was overcast.  They even survived the snow/ice storm of the previous week.

Last year's leaves won't stop this tiny ones from showing their color.

Miniature yellow crocuses.  Hmm, anyone know when the pink flowers are?

Purple crocus.

Flowers and Valentines for All

The Valentine Holiday is one of my favorites.  My girl friends and I started celebrating when we were going to University.  We didn't have boy friends, so we made the day for us with special dinner, cards, chocolates and lots of laughter.  I still love this holiday so much more than my husband or many of my male friends. 

I think, a day to celebrate "love" is wonderful. Yes, bring it on!

Finding Flowers in a Midwest Winter

The snowy and icy terrain of the Minnesota winter can feel a bit bleak on a colorful spirit.  What about locating some flowers to take in their beauty and fragrance to refresh and renew.  We traveled this past weekend to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chanhassen, Minnesota for their Fragrances of Spring, the Essence of Paradise show happening now through February 28th.

And a kaleidoscope of shapes.  Hmmm, let spring and warmth come to Minnesota.
