Today's Flowers # 23

My friends Luiz, Denise and Pupo run the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 7 GMT is the post time.

I am going to share some small Spring flowers today. We just went through a period of extreme cold with the temps reaching -12F. I can see snow outside and that is all. It is beautiful today but flowers are far from my view when I look outside. I know the dawn will break and these beautiful flowers from the Spring will come again.

I cropped this one with the main flower color. I love this little purple flower and the Spring show they put on.
They will fight their way through snow and also will force there way around a large garden stone to show their beauty.
Go to my link to see some other great flower sites.

Crocus are such happy flowers. They renew my faith in this world of ours every spring.

sometimes I struggle with posting images that are from a far off season, but I have to say that looking at flowers in the depth of winter is uplifting to my spirit!

We still have way too much snow to see any flowers much less the ground which we can only see if we use a shovel. Nice pictures though.
