My husband gave these crocuses along with some good dark chocolate for my birthday last week. He knows I prefer potted plants to cut flowers and will put the bulbs in the garden in the spring. It was exactly one year ago that I wrote my first Friday Flowers post. I must have been experiencing midwinter doldrums at the time. I found a piece of paper in my hospital day timer from last February outlining some ideas for flower posts. (They were written during our weekly team meeting...ho hum!)
Other bloggers have been featuring some lovely flower posts lately, knowing we are all craving warmth and colour in the north. Share Lynne at Hasty Brook's visit to the Como Park Conservatory in St. Paul, Minnesota. Mary at Mary's Corner of the World from San Jose, California posted pictures of her December garden and another recent flower post here! Melissa of Empress of Dirt, an avid gardener, is a blogger from my area. Her January post called Faces in the Garden is most inviting. Nature Woman has featured an interesting flower closeup this week. And Mary of Mary's View has forsythia blooming in her area already!
I haven't tired of flower posts yet and know that spring will soon bring more inspiration and beauty.
