A Gibran saying is as brilliant as the flowers you have pictured here, Sylvia! Thanks for sharing memories of the spring we wait for … not only through pictures and words but also with a lovely melancholy tune.

Joys of Spring! So beautiful.

Christine said...

Beautiful and joyous spring captures, Sylvia. I'm so glad you have them to back upon even if it is gray and cold right now.
Your cold must be moving downward: today the temps dropped considerably with the ensuing rain and gray. Have a wonderful week!

Life Ramblings said...

Mama Zen said...

Gorgeous colors of spring!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Oh man Sylvia, you have me in a Springier state of mind even though it has turned cold and windy here today.

I love the flowers and the quote by Will Rogers about cleaner minds and dirtier fingernails.

Reminds of the office quip that a clean desk is a sign of a dirty mind.

If that is so then I've got the cleanest mind in the world.

Take Care Sylvia.

Martha Z said...

Beautiful images of what is to come. Spring has been trying to arrive here, the tulips were almost in bloom but the rabbits nipped off that idea.

alicesg said...

Nice to see flowers blooming in your blog.

Reader Wil said...

Your beautiful flowers are comforting and the quotes are great for International Women's. Day! Thank you Sylvia! I wish you a happy day!

Stewart M said...

After all the snow I'm sure the spring colour will be great. In a normal (hot) summer we get the same impact in autumn - the summer burns away the colour and as the temperature falls, back comes the colour.
Same effect - different process!

Titania said...

Fantastic; spring is so generous with its display of flowers.Big swathes hanging over fences, climbing up;
Tulips stretching their elegant faces into the sun, soaking up the warmth. Very pretty. Followed by interesting quotes. I have read Soren Kierkegard, 35 years ago, he was light years ahead.

lotusleaf said...

LOvely flowers. Your quotes are always thought provoking.

Wren said...

Oh, Sylvia, just when I thought I couldn't want spring any more than I already do. Enjoy your lovely weather and flowers!

Pat said...

Oh, Sylvia, your beautiful flowers brightened my day!

Francisca said...

Gorgeous spring flowers... the anticipation is almost painful! I can identify better now, Sylvia, because I am in a much colder climate!

NatureFootstep said...

are your spring in full bloom? Or is it last years flowers? Never mind, its a treat to watch them.

Eden said...

Those are gorgeous Spring blooms. Love all the colours. Thank you for sharing.

stardust said...

Spring is sprung already here! My favorite is the first one for its flowering quietly by the rock and for its bluish white color.

Beautiful pictures -- had to go back and check to see that it was not this year yet -- wondered if Seattle could be that different from what I hear from Eugene.

Spring is on the way tho I'm sure.

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
