i am borrowing the term "farch" from an esteemed canadien blotanist because the continued cold here has really limited what's blooming this month. here is a scan of the always intrepid hellbore, daffs, chionodoxa and scilla.

thanks for the comments!

Nancy and gardenjoy, check out the snow challenge in my new post! Thanks for the comments. We are lucky and no snow here, but we have yet to have a warm day.

Aunt Debbie, thanks!

What a wonderful image this is! I'd like to try doing this too, because these sorts of creative photos really delight my eye. Maybe if we ever get out of Farchpril (it appears to be growing) and get some spring, I'll have a chance to try. :-)

I love this scan too. Such a pretty combination. Are all these flowers from your garden?
Saturday afternoon down there was very pleasant, after the wind dropped.
We have a frigid wind up here again today.

jodi and kerri, thanks for your comments! scanning flowers is easier than taking photos, imo!

kerri, yes, these are from my garden. it pained me to pick them.

thanks again!
