I know many of you have snow so I thought you might like a little burst of sunshine in the form of some flowers! So many things are blooming months ahead of schedule due to our freaky warm weather.

The Forsythia is starting to bloom and that usually is a sure sign that spring is just around the corner.
A few days ago it was so hot I had the AC on! Today it’s been sunny but cold (high of 54).
The spring flowers are blooming.
Even the fruit trees are starting to bloom! Crazeeeee!
I thought I would have at least another month to finish my foyer and my office but now I don’t know. I’m feeling pressured to start my seeds and build my raised beds!
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
Send some our way. Our daffodils have emerged from the ground, but haven’t bloomed yet. It even snowed this morning!
This is some weird weather! We are supposed to get up to 58 on Tuesday. So we might have some things blooming soon too.
Here in the Memphis area we have forsythias and daffodils in full bloom, along with some quince trees (I think) — but not the regular fruit trees yet. My peaches have buds, but not close to opening, thank goodness. We got up to 79 on Thursday, but kind of cold yesterday and today. No hyacinths open yet either — I’m a little surprised. I think your area is usually just a bit behind us since you are at a higher altitude. We hit a big snow storm driving home from Maryville, TN last Sunday. Crazy weather.
Out and about today and amazed at so many things already blooming way to early.
Looking forward to warmer temps, but praying we don’t get the storms/flooding we have had the last couple of years.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Perhaps things will level off and you can have a normal month of March. It is delightful to see those spring blooms, which are a month off, at least, for us. Weather is always so crazy no matter what’s going on. It seems absolutely wild that you’ve had to already have the AC on!
I had the AC on yesterday, it was near 80, today a high of 57 ! Love your photos!

You are far ahead of us, and we do have about three or four inches of snow………But yesterday I saw the I had wildflowers in bloom, blood roots in a bed on the north side of the garage….But they shouldn’t be in bloom yet, here in northeast Ohio!
thanks for the little hint of Spring…we are expecting snow tonight. Crazee weather all around!
Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces says
Wow…really DOES look like spring there…now I even have worse spring fever!
We have not been hot enough for the a/c but we have been mild – though the last few days we had wind and cold, making it seem very cold.
I have seen Forsythia beginning to bloom here too…
I am hoping we have a nice spring this year – last year it was cold, then blazing hot like summer!
Start your seeds, perhaps the growing season will be extended this year!

It’s all beautiful, real COLOR.
Although when I walked to the county road to get our mail last week, there were patches of dark green on my neighbor’s lawn (he has a professional service spray his lawn quite often). Something one never sees in February around here.
I love your gardening posts… and your decorating posts… and your china posts… etc. 😉

I think it’s been crazy all over, Manuela! We had sun yesterday and every so often it would flurry. It was cold though. I looked ahead to next week’s weather, and while it could change in a snap, it is showing 60 for Wednesday!

My daffodils are just about 2 inches tall right now. I can’t wait for them to come up so I can take a picture an post it
Debby Messner says
Love your signs of spring. Thanks for the sweet comment. Slowly, slowly slowly on the road to recovery.

I am loving the signs of Spring. It gave me a pick me up!!
Manuela…it sure is looking like spring in these pictures at your house. We are not at that point yet here in Kansas…but I think it will be very soon. Yesterday was not too nice, and very windy. It is 60 here today and sun~shiny right now. I sat in the sun this morning and it felt real good since the wind died down. (:>) I look forward to some more nice days and to hearing the birds singing when I wake up in the mornings.

I sure do love that beautiful hyacinth 🙂 🙂 Love and hugs from the ocena shores of California, Heather 🙂
Oh my goodness, I can’t believe all your spring blooms already! And A/C?! I can’t even fathom that with it still being so cold here (northern IL) and a few inches of snow on the ground.
beautiful… just listened to Carolina In my Mind…James Taylor…..sigh…thinking of the Cottage Garden yard back in Charlotte…got to be filled with the daffodils, snowdrops, grape hyacinths, yellowbells, lenten roses….the ferns will be just poking their fuzzy fiddleheads through the soil and the tulips will too…and with the temps the way they have been, I’m sure there are DOZENS of hosta tips poking up…The gal that is there now will have a delight…So much there that came from my mama, my grandmamas, rooted from plants my mom got from my great aunt…sigh…Sometimes it is JUST as hard to leave a yard you’ve built up for 20 years as it is to leave the house… so much time and effort. 🙂 I went out back here in IA today and where the snow has had a melt-down and I can see, there are actually some little green tips of mysterious different things starting to poke up!!! Yay…encouraging me….Hugs to you Manuela…thanks for sharing all your pretties…waiting patiently here…. xo
I think it’s harder to leave a garden. I think more about the gardens I’ve tended and left than the houses!
Hopefully you’ll have some delightful garden surprises of your own in your new garden!
I would so love to grown forsythia, it is the sweetest sight to see it begin to blossom. We got several inches of new snow today, it feels like Winter has finally arrived.
Have a wonderful week,
Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita says
The daffodils started even here in NY. they just popped through, but then more cold came in and nothing new. I hope they make it!
My Little Home and Garden says
I love it when the spring bulbs appear, which won’t be for quite some time yet around here!
Oh how beautiful! My crocus popped up today, but our temps have cooled off quite a bit compared to last week. I think it will be a short lived cold snap… Like you, I’ve got inside things to do, but outside is calling me too! Uh oh… I always feel like this in early spring! Pulled in too many directions!!! All fun though…Love the jar/vase idea…!
