Oh Lisa... lovely shots! I love the snowdrops especially. I'm heading out to Edin Botanics this morning so hope to see some there. I'd also like to see the clouds roll back and reveal a lovely blue sky above them too :-D

Wishing you a great weekend too :-D

You sky captures have made my morning!! The first signs of spring are showing with the crocus starting to bloom. Yes indeed sping is on its way!

Frances said...

Oh hooray for the snowdrops. That is something that has been difficult to get going here, but we now have five. Your bulbs and blue skies are announcing spring is on its way!

Nothing like blue skies above and green shoots below--I think spring might be on its way after all. Have a good weekend, Lisa!

The snowdrops got me, almost spring. Lovely images

Diana said...

Lisa -- There's nothing quite like little emerging bulbs, reaching up into that blue, blue sky. I'm so excited that you're seeing the first signs of Spring.

Beautiful church in that first photo. I'm as ready for spring as those crocus;) Have a great Valentine's Day.

I have beautiful skies, but only snow below. Alas.

I love the signs of spring. Yes, I know it is still winter, but hope is popping out of the ground everywhere. I invite you to come see my ferry sunset. - Margy

This is an exciting time - watching the bulbs wake up. It's also a time to worry that they've arrived too soon and may be hurt by frost. It almost doesn't matter, at least to me, when I see early bulbs, because any sign of garden life this time of year is welcome

I like the church in your skywatch photo. Your snowdrops look sweet! Here in the desert, I don't see many bulbs growing, but I sure enjoy pictures of them.

Hey, Lisa! Thanks for popping in at Poetikat's Invisible Keepsakes. I hope you'll come again and consider following the blog.
I'm a bit of a gardener, but I can use your advice (I'll save the questions for later).
Your blog is lovely. I think the gargoyle is cute too.

I'll be back soon,

Kat

I just hope those bulbs know what they are doing.

I saw a couple of very early green specks in my garden today, but this afternoon we received a couple of inches or so of snow. Spring is on its way, though!

I can't wait for my snow drops to return! Stunning photos!

Okay, I'm going to have to follow your blog if you don't mind. Prince and I have a small, yet somewhat profitable organice farm here in our charming town.
Please drop by to visit me if you have a minute or two.
Happy Valentine's Day and......

I still am not getting notification of new posts Lisa, but I think I may have fixed it by choosing another of the RSS feeds for your site... hope so anyhow.

We have daffodils coming up galore here as well with the milder temps! Can't wait for the spring!

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
Spring is springing at your house!
Your blue skies look warm.
I am watching a Robin this morning eating the berries off the crab apple tree. The ground is still frozen here.
I just love the photgraph of your snowdrops!
Soon, very soon I will see flowers too.
Happy Valentine's Day.
Sherry
