Wordless Wednesday - Spring Flowers

Go to Flickzzz:Flowers for more lovely floral images.


Sonya said...

These are beautiful pictures! Makes me wish spring would hurry up and get to Tennessee!

Neen said...

Beautiful shots!

I did a flower shot today too after getting nailed with a bunch of snow yesterday. I needed a reminder of spring.

Tina Coruth said...

Thank you for posting these beautiful flowers! This has been a long, cold, snowy, icy winter here in New Hampshire. These flowers remind me that the winter will give way to spring! :-)


Joyismygoal said...

yes yes yes to all the previous comments wow That is such a lovely breath of Spring

Lori said...

Those flowers are so beautiful, I can almost smell them:) Happy WW and thanks for stopping by.

Sonya – I’m eager for Spring too even though it’s lots warmer here in Southern California than where YOU live. I’m eager for my roses to come back and bloom, but it will be a while.

Neen – Great minds, eh? We’re all thinking of Spring after this chilly winter.

Tina - We’ve got rain today in So Cal … so hopefully flowers will follow soon. When I see the snowy and icy photos from other parts of the USA I have to shiver.

Joyismygoal – When I saw these at Flickzzz I knew I had to share.

Lori – It was my pleasure to share here and visit your blog again.

I’ve only done Wordless Wednesday a few times, but today it seemed perfect after the two time-consuming memes I posted yesterday … one on each of my blogs … and T-13 coming up tomorrow with Haiku Friday after. I needed a breather in between.

Thanks to all of you for visiting and sharing your thoughts. I hope you’re having a delightful day!
Hugs and blessings,

Ivanhoe said...

Beuatiful shots!It looks like I had a similar "springy" idea. My flowers are from last sping around my house... Happy WW!

Mother of Invention said...

So refreshingly gorgeous! We're months away from this!

SandyCarlson said...

These are really gorgeous! Well done.

Utah Mommy said...

What a pretty flowers you have, different kinds and different beauties. Happy WW!

Kat said...

Now that is what I like to see. Signs of spring. Ahhh. Breathing a sigh of relief over here. I can't wait for spring.
Lovely photos! Thank you!

daisies said...

Maude Lynn said...

Wow, those are gorgeous! We're bracing for our next winter storm, so that was a very welcome taste of spring!

Beautiful....absolutely beautiful!!! Wow...look at the colors...so vivid. Awwwwwwwww, Springtime. Isn't it great? Like a new birth.

As soon as I click publish the comment, I will go over to add you to the "Over 50 Bloggers" blog roll.

Welcome, and I truly hope you'll find some great friendships of ones our 'own age'. LOL

[and to answer your question..that's all you need to do, except maybe visit some. LOL]

Happy Wednesday.

Hootin Anni said...

....okay, your blog has been added. You may have to refresh your blog to see your blog title in the list of members. :o)

storyteller said...

Ivanhoe – Yes we certainly did. As I mentioned on your blog, I wish I’d thought to go through some of my own old Spring photos … but when I found these flowers at Flickzzz this morning, I wanted to share them.

MoI – I’ve got a few flowering bulbs and plants in my yard …even one azalea in bloom, but my roses are a long way off yet.

Sandy Carlson – I wish I could take credit for growing and/or photographing them ;--)

Utah Mommy – I’m glad you enjoyed them and thanks for visiting Small Reflections.

Kathryn – I’m ready for Spring too. It’s been drizzling here all day and is supposed to rain off and on for the next 5 days too.
Daisies – Thanks … I loved them too.

Mama Zen – Listening to the weather this morning I figured everyone could use a reminder of what lies ahead. I still remember the icy photo you posted a while back when you were snowed in for a while. It makes me shiver to think about!

Ivy – Thanks … I’ll be over to visit your WW soon.

Hootin’ Anni – Thanks. I enjoyed your flowers too. Hmmm … I didn’t realize you were in charge of the “Bloggers over 50” group (and I am well over 50), but thanks for adding me so quickly to the Blogroll. You're one busy gal!!! I’m looking forward to meeting some more bloggers in my age range too.

How fun to have so many visitors on a Wednesday! I’ll have to do this WW thing again ;--)
Hugs and blessings to everyone!

Kayce aka lucy said...

glorious reminders of spring! the sun is shining here, but the flora still looks pretty bleak.

Ari_1965 said...

Oh, I can't wait for Spring.

Cathi said...

Absolutely beautiful.

Betty said...

Beautiful flowers. I'm think Spring. We are supposed to be getting freezing rain over night. I live in Middle Tennessee.

NicciN said...

So beautiful. I love spring. I actually met a student at work who said he would come give me a garden and composting consultation. He works at the botanical garden. I am so excited. I want to grow flowers and food! And I will finally get the composting to happen!

Joy Des Jardins said...

Oh how gorgeous!! Just what I needed on yet another day of below freezing temps. I am so ready to be done with winter Virginia. Your flowers give me hope.

Anonymous said...

Those flowers are awesome!
Picture Nr. 3 is my Fav though!

Anonymous said...

Ahhhh! I miss color.

storyteller said...

Lucy – It’s fun to be able to see these reminders at my desk since they’re certainly not in MY yard yet.

Ari 1965 – I’m with you … ready for a change of weather.

Pinkjagxj – I’m glad you enjoyed them.

Betty – Brrrr … I hope you’re staying warm. We had drizzles yesterday and are supposed to get more over the next few days, but it cleared enough to be able to see the lunar eclipse last night.

Yertle – How fun! I enjoyed the info you posted on “composting” and look forward to learning more from you as you experiment with this.

Joy – I’m happy to provide a bit of respite for your Virginia winter weather. I took a page from your book in posting these yesterday and in doing my T-13 this morning.

Nicole – I loved the unfocused quality of #3 too … but the Fuschia was my favorite.

Colleen – Soon … there will be color soon. And, of course, you’re welcome to visit here any time you need a lift. LOL

Thanks to everyone for your visit and comments.
Hugs and blessings,

Did you just take these? Or are they from last year? Beautiful.

storyteller said...

Byrningbunny – Thanks for visiting my Wordless Wednesday and T-13 today so I can follow the link back and visit your blog too. I wish I could take credit for growing and/or photographing these, but all I did was find them at Flickzzzz. If you click on the link below the last photo you’ll find even more lovely flowers.
Hugs and blessings,

Karen said...

These are such beautiful photos and beautiful flowers...I'm viewing them as I listen to my husband scraping the ice off his windshield (we were hit with freezing rain in the D.C. area--and it's likely to continue all day).

I bought sweatheart roses and daffodils at Trader Joe's yesterday (I knew it would be bad today, so made it a "Spend only on Thursdays" week!), which definitely helps to perk things up.

And thanks for helping to perk things up with your delightful blog!

storyteller said...

Karen - I’m happy to “perk things up” in whatever ways I can. I appreciate your regular visits and supportive comments.

I always look quickly at the flowers as I pass by them when entering Trader Joes, but since I’m allergic to most … I leave them be. I’d love to be able to enjoy cut flowers indoors but have to settle for enjoying them in my yard. I envy my neighbor who is forever sticking her nose right up in my roses and telling me how wonderful they smell. It’s just not possible for me in this lifetime anyways. LOL

I’m glad you’re adapting your spending day as needed. Methinks flexibility is essential in such matters.
Hugs and blessings,
