Red 1 Blue 2

After barely surving the whole winter on my kitchen table by the window, a lone impatien blossom finally arrives to entertain me.

In the Bathoom, the blue-violet African violets started another bloom, while right next to it, the sister pink-violet still slumbers.

Even tho it's still pretty cold this week, the plants listen to their light-hours cue.
These aggressive Tiger Lily sprouts bravely push through the forest floor layers while most other species remain dormant a bit longer, all over the woods right across my road.
Happy sproutlings Spring lovers!

Love those african violets. Nature is just quirky, huh?

The flowers are lovely - love the lone and brave pink impatien! My african violets are now bloomless and I miss them.

It's been such up/down temps that the crocus here are holding their blooms tight and refusing to open, but I hope they do this week. It's time for some more color in our world!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful sproutlings (what an adorable word)! And I, too, am a lover of African violets.

We've been having up-down temps, too, but it looks like spring will set in good and proper during the coming week! :)

Nice to see something survive the harsh New England winter intact.

All the power to Mother Nature, because you just know it isn't right to pull one over on her.

It always make me smile the way nature brings you so much pleasure. :) I've really never liked flowers, so this is an education for me. :)

Yay, spring!! Mom says her tiger lilies are up too! I'm not sure how long yours have been pushing up -- probably since you moved in there? But Mom's are the same ones since she movind in there -- almost 51 years ago.

And I guess you know that on Joni's second album she was holding up a tiger lily, in her self portrait. Her painting. Now THERE is one creative woman, on many levels!

have you any Liger lilies? :)

Anyone who can see an african violet through a winter to bloom is my HERO!!

Lynn, sometimes it's tough to figure out how nature chose the program-

Talon, the little thing sprouted in a flowerpot from last year- n I'm wondering if it'll make it to the deck this summer. Only had one other live thru winter inside before. Sometimes the African violets will bloom a storm of blossoms- then other cycles there's only a few blossoms. Maybe I should fertilize them more?
I hope your croci greet you very soon!

ThommaLynn, everything so cute deserves a cute name! thanks. We need an "AV anon" org- "I admit, I cannot walk past them at the store without buying them...!"
Lucky you with the spring promise so close-

G, hard to imagine any plants living thru my table! "It isin't nice to fool Mother Nature!" (lightning/thunder) Darn, another 5" of rain too! (reality)!

LLcoolJ, I do love the natural things- Impatiens usually have an abundance of quick blooms that go on n on- btw - (not just one!) -but I'll take the one instead of none anytime. It's just odd. Yep, I like the little things-

JanF, The woods lillies seem to move every year- they seem early. I moved some around the yard in places. the other flowers haven't sprouted. No periwinkle or tulips yet-

A Liger Lily would be ginormous! A Tigon Lily would be small n striped...

Thanks- when you consider how cold it is in here with the heat on 50- it is amazing. I think the bathroom is good because of the shower-steam humidity- they are from the rain forest- That's one of two. I've had the other about 4 years now.

Yea! sunshine and violets a rest for the eye by way of non-gray

BB, I hope your patient impatiens don't need much doctoring- just water!

Paige, That's what's cheering away the grey here for sure-
Yikes! That would NOT be too good for my allergies! When that happens here, I get pretty ill. Good luck playing with the hose-
