Dreaming Of Warmer Days

When I look outside,I see a world covered in a thick blanket of snow.This is normal for this time of year and I am very thankful for the moisture this snow will give us.
It is also normal by this time of year to get a little anxious to see signs of spring.
In the outside world I will have to wait for the sun to warm things up and melt the snow so the flowers can once again grow. 
All pictures are taken last year or earlier.

The small, yet so pretty Bleeding Heart is seen in many early summer gardens. I think they are so cute. This was captured at The English Gardens in Winnipeg.

I have fallen in love with Geraniums over the last few years. They seem to grow well for me and bloom almost non-stop from spring till freeze-up.

As most of you already know,I love roses and I love them in all colors, even the simple white ones.
Another flower captured at The English Gardens in Winnipeg.


I turned to an App on my phone to help with identifying this flower.The App called "Picture This" works really well.It tells me it is a Prairie Coneflower. I see these in ditches along the country roads around here.


No question as to what this flower is The beautiful Waterlily is a regal looking flower.The English Gardens in Winnipeg have numerous colos in the Lily pond.

Closing Thought:

Life is full of beautiful things….Soft sunrise, cool winds, pretty flowers, quiet moments, love and laughter and good friends like you.

  2. Oh, the water lily is spectacular! We're getting a warm-up this weekend and into next week. It won't be long now until we'll be complaining about the heat. ;)

  4. I have never seen or heard of a Prairie Coneflower, but we have plenty of regular Coneflowers. The Water Lily is gorgeous, but I think my favorite is the simple white rose. They look like wild roses.

  12. Good Evening, Oh such gorgeous blooms you have shared. I love the dainty blooms of Bleeding Heart. I love geraniums but have no luck growing them in GA's red clay. Thank you for sharing these beautiful flowers and I wish you a delightful weekend.

  16. So wonderful to enjoy all the colorful blooms of these flowers that you've taken pictures of! I can imagine the Winnipeg Gardens is a place I'd love to visit and stay for a long while! How nice to have an app to tell you what a flower is! I need to get that app! That would be very helpful out in the woods coming across flowers that I have no idea what they are. Spring is coming, for sure it is, even if we are getting another dump of snow tonight, because we are supposed to get temps for a week straight up into the 50s next week :) I love love love the snow, but now I am ready for spring :) Blessings to you sweet friend!

  17. Through February, I was still holding out for another snow...we only had a big one the first week of December. Well, forget that now...I am ready for some color too! I have never seen bleeding hearts only in photos. They are so beautiful!
