Today's Flowers #31

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.

Thanks for your understanding as I continue to heal from the operation. It is an uphill fight and I want it to be over. I get sore if I'm at the computer too long.

I had my first spring blooms come up on Friday. I don't know why these photos rotated but here they are any ways. This little white bloom is the early riser. I found they are called Snowdrops. It turns into a hanging white bell and later offerings will add to the flowers.
My Purple Crocus bloomed the next day. They are starting to put on a neat Spring show.
I think this little bloom is truly beautiful.
The first signs of Spring are here. The Hyacinth, Sedum and Tulips are sprouting. They can take a snow so all is safe.

Ah, I just saw my neighbor's crocuses! Some purple, some yellow.

Love your little snowdrops, too. One has a bloom.

Feel good, take care of yourself. Eat nutritious food; that helps (a lot) with healing.

Love the pictures with the hope of spring in each one. Hope every day finds you better and better. We're all thinking about you.

Judy said...

I just turned my head sideways, and the snowdrops were right side up again! They are lovely, but I must admit my favourite is the single purple crocus! I love the delicate colour, and the way you can see all of the middle of the blossom!!
Get well!

Lucky you! we had more snow this morning!

marie-louise said...

Beautiful images of your spring flowers. The colour and petals of the flowers are just gorgeous.

Robert V. Sobczak said...

They are the first sign of spring ... and usually don't wait much after the snow leaving (sometimes even before). You'll get better with the weather, you'll see! Hang in there.

Day4plus said...

I love the little snowdrops. Crocus too! that is what I posted.

Isn't it amazing that the most delicate flowers bloom right through the snow and cold. MB

Lara said...

Pietro said...

What an enjoyable series of flowers pictures, Fishing Guy.
We can really say that Spring has come.

We have these here too Tom and I am sure it is a welcome sight for you after the long, cold winter.

I will join everyone in wishing you a very speedy recovery and dont worry if you cannot get to comment on our blogs, the most important thing is that you get better soon.
