Harbingers of Spring


Flowering Quince.


 Narcissus
Snow Drops

 Japanese Magnolia

                                       For the beauty of each hour
                                        Of the day and of the night,
                                 Hill and vale, and tree, and flower,
                                 Sun and moon, and stars of light,
                                 Lord of all, to Thee we raise,
                                 This our hymn of grateful praise.

  7. Hi Bonnie,

    Your photos are beautiful, I love the wonderful colours and the freshness.


    I am busy playing catch-up but because I have missed so much over the last few weeks, don't think that I will ever really catch-up with everything!!

    I have missed your lovely blog and photos but will have a good read now.

    Have a great weekend

  8. Beautiful flowers Bonnie! I would love to have some Flowering Quince to snip and bring indoors! Our daffadils are have about 5 inches of growth on them and the trees are starting to bud since our winter has been so mild. I'd rather get all our winter out of the way so we don't have killing frost & snowy surprise when March rolls around :)
