Pictures To Share In The Hope Of Spring!

Winter is the reality, but Spring is in my heart!


The grocery store near my house was selling this purple heather like plant called "Campanula Get Mee."I proceeded to "get mee" home with it, in order to assist in recovering from a mild case of "cabin fever." Upon reading the tag I further discovered that when the ground thaws this plant can be tucked into the great outdoors for perennial flowering into summer. Let's hope!

Snow White tulips are appreciated more than the real thing at the moment! For all my neighbors who remembered to plant their daffodils and tulips last fall before the snow...I will enjoy your garden views!




  1. Thank you for following my blog...and to see you are also Canadian. I am in Manitoba but have nieces and nephews in Calgary. My sister was there but passed away a year ago. I loved seeing your campanulla, and the tulips look awesome. Love to garden but we still have a lot of snow so don't get to do any planting until the end of May. But, that is not that far off. I have joined your followers list and look forward to return visits as well.Hugs, Gayle.

  2. Hi Gayle,
    Nice to hear from you. I lived in Manitoba several windy winters as a young girl, prior to heading to the North West Territories. My father was and still is an adventurer! The sun is now getting stronger but yes I will be waiting for May long weedend before annuals are put out. We often get snow the morning after I plant! lol Have a great week. :)
