Colors Other Than White or Brown

Yellow Pansies, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. February 24, 2011.

We’re finally beginning to see some colors other than white or brown in the yard.  Although it is only early March, Daffodils and Tulips are pushing up through the soil.  Our roses are beginning to show signs of new growth.

The pansies have emerged from under the snow and have shaken off the effects of freezing temperatures.  The yellow beauties above aren’t perfect examples of pansy blossoms, but they are definitely sunny and cheerful.

Crocus in bloom, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. February 23, 2011.

Betsy even found a crocus in bloom.  It was small, but there were three blossoms in all.  Looking at them I could almost think I was dreaming, but the picture is real.  We had crocus in bloom in late February.

    It is hard to believe how the pansies can survive the snow. It must be heart warming to see your garden come to life in Spring.

    We are beginning to see the green of grass; still lots of white and brown (MUD!) around though.

    I found one Iris yesterday pushing through that seems to be making a far too early appearance.

    I cannot wait to see some color outside! We are still brown and although the snow is gone we got a serious cold chill this afternoon….even built a fire in the fireplace this evening.

    I am sooooo ready for spring! Glad it is making its appearance at your house 🙂
    hopefully we are soon to follow!
