Sunshine & Flowers

Hello dears,
I've been feeling really badly for all of you with so much snow and dreary overcast skies.  We are having a really nice (unusually nice) week or so of just the opposite.  So I thought I'd share some of our sunshine and some of the blooming types.

The only rose I didn't prune back.  You can see why!  I just didn't have the heart to cut off all those blooms.

Daffodils are starting to bloom.

Hyacinth is starting to show some color.

I don't know what this is. I got it from my neighbor to make Halloween plants with. It blooms, too.

 Now if you know lemons you know these thorns... about 2" long and deadly sharp. Notice the blue sky?
My Azalea is blooming. The other one is purple but has decided not to bloom at this time.

These last two are Camellias... they like Azaleas are winter bloomers. Mine are decidedly later than others,  probably because mine are in the shady part of the yard. There are lots of buds this year, so I'll have flowers until other kinds flowers start coming out.  I love a cut Camellia floating in a small dish. So pretty.

Well, that's it for today. Tomorrow I'll show some more of the stars and trees quilt. I have more stars done. Thank you for all the comments!
Love you all, especially my followers!!!
