In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve some photos of emerging flowers in the garden, along with sprays of narcissi that Himself bought me in my spring flower Valentine bouquet. And yes… I know photographically they are not the best I’ve taken. But they are a promise of flowers to come, with sunshine and warmth. And right now on a bleak, wet mid-February day, I need that promise… That said, I’m still not quite sure why my perennial wallflower shrub insists on trying to flower right now. Or why my rosemary is also covered in buds which are just beginning to bloom.
Signs of spring are a very good thing right now!
I certainly find myself longing for spring – although it is still several weeks away…
We are currently having a terrible patch of winter in Texas but things change here pretty fast. Spring is probably around the corner for me, too (I hope)!
Yes! I watched clips from the news that Texas was experiencing blizzards! I very much hope you are managing to keep warm and cosy in all the white mayhem, Becky.
I am warmer than many, that’s for sure! Things are looking up in the next few days, we hope. Thanks, Sarah!
Fingers crossed that it gets milder really soon to help those who are cold – but doesn’t cause flash flooding!
I miss flowers so much! We have lots of plants in the workspace but none with blooms. Though a cactus may be giving it a whirl.

Yes… I recall in the days when I used to do a lot of sailing – I also missed plants. Because we were always away during the height of the summer and I’d come back to knee-high grass and weed-infested flower beds:)). Though cacti flowers are always amazing – like living jewels, I always thing, Cap!
Thank you, Jennie. It’s providing me with a bit of hope that there will be a summer at some stage this year. Generally about mid-Feburary, I forget that there is a prospect of sunshine in my life…
I feel the same way at this time of year!
Its amazing to me when flowers start blooming so early, these are lovely😁
Yes… it is such a treat to see the daffodils, in particular!
The promise of spring will have to be enough to sustain us in this last leg of the winter, and your pictures are always a great help! 🙂
Thank you, Maddalena. I was hoping that Highdown Gardens would be open in time for their amazing display of daffodils – but sadly, their major upgrade means they aren’t going to be available to the public until April. So I will be looking out for more examples of massed plantings of daffodils…
Daffodils are so pretty aren’t they and I do love the spring flowers. Tulips, forsythia, bluebells. I had a problem with my daffodils though, i used to have a huge swathe of them in one border but I think they must have become diseased and it affected all of the bulbs. It happens.
Yes, it does. I also have problems with slugs eating my bulbs, so it was a wonderful surprise to so see these ones come up again.
I am so jealous. We got over a foot of snow this week. I love seeing those flowers peeping out of the ground.
