The first blooms of the year

Sunday it was 52 degrees!
We started our day with a 3 mile walk around the golf course.
Later, we poked around the garden and discovered that several things were starting to bloom.

The Cherry tree is starting to do it's thing.
We cut a few rosemary branches too, for a potato recipe that will be prepared later in the week.

Spring is weeks away, but a few winter blooms and a few dry days like today, will tide us over!



  1. We can't imagine blooms under the snow in a deep freeze! You are lucky to have some.

  2. Wow, blooms in January - how special!! We are buried with snow, and we are loving it.

  3. We can't believe you have blooms already. It will be months before we see anything blooming around here.

  4. Down here, things never stop bloomin'! It's been a very warm winter, we haven't even gotten below freezin' yet! Ma says it's okays cause the heating bill is lower, butts I do likes me some frosty mornings. Anyhu, your blooms are FABulous! and did I hears somethings about potatoes???

  5. wow that is great to see that mother nature is still awake... even in that cold and wet month.

  6. We're betting the potato dish with rosemary is going to be yummy.
    Although I might add that rosemary goes well with lamb shanks too, and the bones taste extra nice...
    Toodle pip!

  7. We ackshually saw irises blooming on our walk!

  8. What beautiful flower arrangements! I'm still waiting for snow and you're getting pretty flowers already!

  9. All the tulips that I planted last year have sprouted but then the ice and snow covered them this weekend yep I am cold not 52 degrees here.

  10. We have nothing but snow today. Our earliest flowers won't appear for at least another six weeks or more! It was great to see that you have a few flowers, though. That rosemary probably smells so yummy!

  11. Mom says she would LOVE to have this weather butt we are stuck in the below freezing, polluted air weather of winter.

  12. We like having the promise that spring will be here some time BOL! only 7 degrees this morning and more snow possible the rest of the week

  13. They are gorgeous! It was just over 77°F when we went for our 5:30 a.m. walk. We're heading for a top of 104°F later today. Would love a couple of days of your temps and some rain. We're moving hoses to keep our plants alive. Enjoy yourselves.

  14. We saw a few blooms along our morning walk today too, Tegan! Isn't living in the PNW the bestest!?

  15. We have a TON of paperwhites in our yard. And yesterday BEFORE the big rain hit, Mommy found me a RIPE strawberry! And she said there were quite a few more almost ready to eat! How lucky is that? And the best thing about winter berries - the slugs, snails and bugs are still hiding underground and are totally unaware of the berries.
