12 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks Driad and Amy ... :o)))
... Paul ... I hope your snow melts soon ...

12 Feb, 2013

 

what a lovely sight Terra, makes me feel better seeing crocus :o))) x

12 Feb, 2013

 

your garden is so much further on than mine. these are lovely. I just have a bit of foliage up above ground.

12 Feb, 2013

 

As others have said these Crocuses make you feel happy! I wouldn't be without them on my balcony! I have been growing them every year I think since we've lived here - now 12 years!
.
Like you, TT, I grow them in pots as well. Mine are in aluminium hoops on the balcony railings. I have one Crocus flower at present but very shortly there will be LOTS more! LOL! :-))

Lovely crocus signs of spring and your super garden as a backdrop what a cheerer upper TT :o) There is a 2" snow blanket here hiding my snowdrops and maybe even a crocus or two!!

12 Feb, 2013

 

Made me feel happy too! I've been a bit off colour today Terra, and it's sooooo cold here and as grey as an old man's vest! Your photo has just cheered me up, thanks! X

12 Feb, 2013

 

Btw, my cream crocus are also showing their colour like this, but somehow yours look prettier!

12 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks Sandra, Seaburn, Balcony, Neena and Karen ...

I'm glad the crocus flowers have cheered you ... I hadn't realised they were ahead of other gardens.... they've been in that pot since last year and today I noticed they'd decided to flower :o)

Karen ...There are various virus bugs going around ... I'm feeling better after being poorly earlier this week... keep warm and snug ! x

12 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks terra! X

Well I love your pretty Crocus....mine are still hidden. We are expecting our first snow tomorrow....my poor plants will remain hidden I think. Sorry to hear you are unwell Karen. Keep warm and soon we will be able to enjoy the spring weather.

Hi Linda ...
Milder weather in England by Thursday.
I hope it will be mild for you in Scotland too...

12 Feb, 2013

 

That's lovely TT.... In fact the whole garden looks lovely. Roll on March :)

12 Feb, 2013

 

:-))))))))))))) so beautiful Terra:-)))

12 Feb, 2013

 

Your garden is pretty all year round TT :o)

13 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks Angie, Junna and Hywel ...
This winter my garden evergreens have been full of interest ... I'm glad I planted them all. :o)

13 Feb, 2013

 

Lovely Crocus TT. I was leaving an antique fair at a sports centre at Brentwood, over a week ago, I was amazed to see hundreds of daffodils in full bloom, sheltered by a hedge, and lining the verge. They lifted my spirits. Compliments to Brentwood council parks department.

13 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Dorjac ..
It's great to see the spring bulbs appearing :o)

13 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Terra, I have ONE daff and 5 snowdrops in my little garden thats all, very sad. the green leaves are there but as yet not flowers, never mind as bjs said to me "ye of little faith" i am even talking to them in desparation :0)

13 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Sue .. trying singing ;o)

13 Feb, 2013

 

That looks lovely, you are well ahead of me. My garden was still covered in snow when I left this morning :o))

13 Feb, 2013

 

Recently there was a lot of snow here, but I don't think the crocus noticed ... decided it's time to flower :o)))

13 Feb, 2013

 

I think a lot of the problem is my back garden is in full shade until March so the snow just hangs about. The poor little Crocus are all undercover :o))

13 Feb, 2013

 

What a lovely sight Terra. We're all willing spring to come fast now. Go away snow!......brrrrr!

13 Feb, 2013

 

Wow, that is so 'springy' - nothing like that here yet, although it is dry today thank goodness. I have to go and catch the bus into town so I am thankful for that :)

13 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks Poppylover and Gee ...
milder weather and spring flowers on their way !!!
Hurray :o)))

13 Feb, 2013

 

Snowing hard here Terra! :( but it won't lie....tomorrow is promising to be much warmer!

13 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Karen ..
get your bikini ready for tomorrow ;o)

13 Feb, 2013

 

lol! Even the Hot Tub is empty Terra...no chance of any Bikini being sported in these parts!...should have said 'on' these parts! :))

13 Feb, 2013

 

Lol. your new slimmer shape ...
.. all parts ..
justifies spending cash on a new bikini !!!

13 Feb, 2013

 

Lovely signs of spring, fine snow here so still cold and damp, looking forwards to it a bit milder
Is that winter jasmine in the background?

13 Feb, 2013

 

Hello Pam... thank you ...
Winter jasmine back left ...
has flowered very well this winter...
Clematis armandii further down on the pergola ...
nice to have lots of evergreens !

13 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Terra, all very useful in these grey days, especially the jasmine...

13 Feb, 2013

 

Terra, your garden looks wonderful! Mine looks a terrible mess at the moment. I don't know how you do it. Your crocus looks very pretty. Your C. Armandii is fabulous, I really must get more evergreens:-)

13 Feb, 2013

 

Yes, Pam and Bornagain ..
Winter interest is cheering ...
I haven't done any gardening all winter, other than raking up leaves off the lawns and paths !

13 Feb, 2013

 

lovely pic Terra...spring will soon be here...:-)

13 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Sandra .. many thanks..
yes, spring almost here :o)

13 Feb, 2013

 

This looks lovely Tt. So cheerful. It's snowing like billyo here at my daughters and T says its the same at home. Fingers crossed it stops soon and then thaws quickly. I only had 2 crocus flowers out before I came up here and the birds pulled them off!!!!!

13 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Homebird
Thanks ... I hope you have milder weather soon ...

Lots of sparrows in my gardens this winter, so I'm hoping they'll leave my crocus flowers alone ... the small birds seem to prefer pecking the climbers ... and this year ... yippee... they even left my viburnum blossom alone :o)))

13 Feb, 2013

 

:o)))))

13 Feb, 2013

 

What a welcome sight TT. I don't think mine are showing yet - but they are in the grass :o(

13 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks, Tracey ...
looking at these, can you see why I named my yellow and green budgie "Crocus" :o)))

13 Feb, 2013

 

Isn't it lovely to see the signs of another Spring season coming? ... The birds have demolished the four yellow Crocus (or are they Crocii???) that were brave enough to open up in my back garden! Post a pic of yours when they've opened up, Tt ...:o)

13 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Shirley ... Thanks..
Yes, the signs of springtime are coming thick and fast now ...
I hope my crocus flowers stay intact ... I'll try to photograph them for you ... :o)

13 Feb, 2013

 

:o)))

13 Feb, 2013

 

Hi TT - A very appropriate name for dear Crocus! :o)))

13 Feb, 2013

 

Added to favourites - a very lovely sight.

14 Feb, 2013

 

Tracey ..
Crocus budgie sent you a 'thank you' tweet...
... I hope you received it ;o)

Thanks Wildrose ..
Today, the little crocus flowers have bloomed even more. :o)

14 Feb, 2013
