or not – Weekly Photo Challenge | Spring – I found it!

I’m getting out of my writing slump but I couldn’t resist going out to see if I could find some signs of Spring in the neighbourhood. And I did! There is nothing bugging me today!

In keeping with the yellow flowers I posted yesterday I even managed to find a couple of yellow Crocus poking up out of the ground.

There is nothing bugging me today!


Quote for today

First a howling blizzard woke us,
Then the rain came down to soak us,
And now before the eye can focus –

    lovely flowers…and the early signs of spring…just for you!

      Hi Jeanne, I went in search of spring today and I found it by going down a garden path I hadn’t travelled before. 🙂

  2. March 18, 2011 at 10:01 PM

    I think these gorgeous crocuses poked their heads out of the ground just for you Rose – spring has sprung for you!

      Hi Barb, there was a woman out doing some spring clean-up on the garden and she pointed them out to me. If she hadn’t cleared away most of the leaves I doubt I would have seen them.

      I don’t often see yellow crocus, so I think you’re right, they poked their heads just for me! 🙂

    Yay! Glad that spring is making an appearance. Love the crocus quote. 🙂

      Thanks Nancy, it`s slow coming and it is still pretty dreary outside but the little flash of colour today did brighten my spirits. 🙂

    Hey Classyrose, this is really nice, I love Yellow for flowers. Spring has not sprung here yet in Chicago, IL. I wish it would warm up, it puts a smile on my face and a spring in my step. Maybe that is why it’s called “Spring.” I just get antsey and want to do things.

      Hi Jackie, your weather is pretty similar to Southern Ontario so I know what you mean. There`s still lots of grungy snow piled in heaps but it`s slowly melting away.

      I`m wishing for warmer weather too! 🙂

    Like the crocus picture and quote accomapany it!

    Better see what spring photos I have and if not, take my camera for a walk!

      Thanks PiP, I couldn`t believe my luck when I found the quote.

      Can`t wait to see what you come up with since you love thinking outside the box. 🙂

    Beautiful and truly perfect shots! I love crocuses… I mostly have purple ones. This is a great butter yellow color. 🙂

    • March 19, 2011 at 5:33 AM

      Thanks Elizabeth, I think that purple is probably the most popular colour so finding the yellow ones today made me feel good because I`ve been in so much of a slump this week. 🙂

    I really admire the sequencing of the crocus photos. Lovely effect —
    Ours are still buried under 2 1/2 feet of snow!!!!

    • March 19, 2011 at 9:36 AM

      Thanks Touch2Touch, they are four different photos and not just one that I’ve cropped. With digital I just keep on snapping photos and just discard what I don`t like.

      I’m in southern Ontario, where are you that you still have so much snow? 🙂

      • March 19, 2011 at 4:46 PM

        We’re in the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts. We had HUGE amounts of snow this winter, and a lot of it’s melted during the past five days — but just across the bed where the crocuses are, it’s still high. I hope the poor things make it!
        I posted daffodils for my spring challenge, but crocuses are actually dearer to my heart. It’s why I liked your post so much — and such a wonderful soft but vibrant yellow —

        • March 19, 2011 at 10:41 PM

          I think the crocus will be just fine. With all that snow the ground is still pretty cold so they’re still in winter mode.

          I don’t often see yellow crocus and they were the only two on the garden path. 🙂

  8. March 19, 2011 at 1:09 PM

    Lovely photos, Rose. Just the thing to make me think of warm, spring weather!

    • March 19, 2011 at 10:34 PM

      Thanks Shell, I love the bright yellow of the flowers, now we just need to see the bright yellow sunshine a little more. 🙂

  9. March 19, 2011 at 1:41 PM

    beautiful pics Rose! I’m in the process of putting together my weekly photo challenge. It’s my first attempt at a slideshow! be looking for it on Monday!

    • March 19, 2011 at 10:35 PM

      Thanks Stacey, the slideshows are easy to put together once you select your photos. I’ll be looking to see what you come up with. 🙂

  10. March 20, 2011 at 3:39 PM

    Well done! Beautiful! I think I might learn the photo thing….we’ll see…all the photos are making me desirous of finding something worthy of trying it.

    • March 20, 2011 at 7:05 PM

      Thanks Jaxie, give it a shot. You will never know unless you try it. 🙂

  11. March 21, 2011 at 1:15 AM

    I didn’t even know they HAD yellow crocuses. They’re lovely. It looks like Spring is coming in like a blessing in Southern Ontario. You deserve it down there after all the storms you’ve had this winter.

    Yellow flowers should cheer ya up! 😉

    • March 21, 2011 at 7:53 AM

      Thanks Sandra, the flowers help a little but warmer weather would really cheer me up.

  12. March 22, 2011 at 7:14 AM

    Great Rose…
    I love the yellow color with an orange spot right in the center part

    Anyway.. I finally post mine after arguing my self that eventhough we don’t have spring season, we have plenty and beautiful flowers to capture :mrgreen:

    • March 23, 2011 at 8:45 AM

      Thanks Yori, the photo you’ve posted is stunning and vibrant. 🙂

  13. March 22, 2011 at 9:45 PM

    These photos are lovely. Spring is my favorite season. Yay!

    • March 23, 2011 at 8:48 AM

      Thanks Cecelia, I like spring, but summer is my favourite season. 🙂

  14. March 25, 2011 at 11:21 AM

    Very pretty – and I’m jealous. We don’t have anything in bloom yet.
