Everyone is ready for springtime and that was very apparent at the Philadelphia Flower Show.  So instead of more snow pictures I will share a few more of the sights I saw there last Friday. This is what I wish my outdoor Wednesday looked like.back yard roombackyard

But it still looks the same outdoors here, even though our weather is improving.

Actually I do have a few brave sprouts trying to emerge to spite the snow all around them, but looking at these pretty flowers is much more pleasing to my eyes in the middle of March.azaleas

The warmer temperatures we have been having are melting the white stuff but more importantly they are lifting the winter doldrums. yellow

 It won’t be long and there will be scenes like these out in our very own backyards.

  1. Cheerful, warm weather images. I can’t wait either!

  2. Wow you really have a great space! What beautiful flowers. I can’t wait for spring here.

  3. Enjoyed my visit to the flower show trough your lens. All the flowers are so pretty.

  4. What a lovely yard. I was looking at those pruners with an envious eye as we just got done cutting down some trees and trimming the branches for yard waste…

  5. Lovely spring flowers! You are so lucky to have spring already!

  6. I was hoping that people would be sharing some cheerful spring photos this week, and I haven’t been disappointed! Oh, to have an outdoor room like that second photo to enjoy the weather!

  7. How beautiful! Thank you for the tour of the Philadelphia Flower Show! I certainly needed a dose of spring!
