Show and Tell: Spring Greetings

While I didn't get the wonderful layers of blooming I was hoping for, my garden does have something to show for itself.

The tulips are all that bloomed in two containers of layered bulbs, except for one crocus that died weeks ago. I have crocus stems but no blooms. :( But the three that have bloomed so far are really lovely.































The pansies however, are a story of defiance and resiliance. After being crushed by a foot and a half of snow and frozen and thawed several times by our uncharacteristic cold and snowy winter here on the west coast, they have come back to life. They remind me that if you hold on long enough, you can thrive and even shine. My hubby commented that he'll think twice about calling someone a "pansy". ;)


Stop by Mel's to see what else is blooming in class...

Your flowers are beautiful! It has been raining so much here, we have had to enjoy our plants from indoors. I can't wait to get out in the yard again.

Absolutely stunning flowers but that baby bump in the post below is even prettier.
