Dreaming of Spring

When I look outside,spring seems very far away.
Our flower beds are buried under 12-18 inches of snow,with no thought of any melting any time soon.
In my mind,my thoughts are turning towards the coming season.
Today as I was looking through some of last years pictures I suddenly 
had a strong wish for warmer temperatures and beautiful flowers.
With this in mind I give you some Tulips to brighten the day,
I love the soft translucent look of this peach colored Tulip.
Each flower has it's own beauty.
This one is very rich looking,and adds to the overall look of the flower bed.
These Tulips start out with the edges very pale,but as they
age,the color deepens.
What is more vibrant than a pure red flower.
These three stand tall in the sunshine,ready to bring delight to all.
So now that we have looked at a few of the spring beauties,
it's back to winter for a while,but,change is coming.

 If Winter comes,can Spring be far behind?

  13. Tulips. I like them but not much else does here in this wildlife sanctuary so what I have not dug up or got rid of is one lone tulip.

  19. Oh, I love tulips, Ruth! These are absolutely gorgeous!

    Gophers and deer have eaten any tulips I have planted unless they were in a planter box in a deer-proof fenced area. Do you ever have problems with gophers eating your tulip bulbs?

  20. I love tulips but don't even try to grow them here as too many critters would eat them if I did. It is nice to see them in your photos! I am also dreaming of spring and want to start exploring the seed catalogues!

  22. Can't have a rainbow without rain
    Can't have spring (the way we know it) without winter
    Can't have new life without the (sacrificial) death of our Savior

    Love the colors!
