A Taste of Spring

A little bit of Spring for you from the Cincinnati Home and Garden Show. We go every year to be refreshed by the fabulous garden installations.I will post some pictures of all the beautiful gardens this week. Can't you just breath in the scent of these hyacinths?
I am longing for a bit of warmth, I even miss humidity!
I was told by this gardener to bury some nails near my hydrangeas to get more blue.
Tulips are a riot of colorful blooms.
My favorite harbinger of spring, the forsythia. They are the color of sunshine.
Hope you enjoyed this touch of spring. It is in the low 20's here in Cincinnati. What is the weather like where you live?
Have a Monday full of warmth, P.
Pin It!

I am so envious looking at those pics! I wish spring were here already just to smell the flowers.

oh - I am so longing for the cala lilies and tulips to start showing themselves!

But, as we received 11" of snow last night, I don't think it's going to be soon.

Lovely photos - look forward to more!
