Happiness Is..

 

 

It doesn’t take too much to make a gardener little heart happy..

Daffodil_Trumpet

just give us the first daffodils in bloom at the beginning of Spring…..

Heath_Closeup

or some pretty little pink blossoms on the Heath…..

Brunnera

or perhaps its spotting tiny leaves from the Brunnera coming up through the soil……

Hellebore

Happiness is the hope that the new Hellebores may get their first blooms……

ligularia

or the growth of the Ligularia that a garden friend sent to you in the Fall that has survived and looking so beautiful…….

{thank you Jim & Pat}

tulipa_turkestanica4

Happiness id tulipa turkestania blooming for the first time….

{Even if you had forgotten you had planted the things and its name and had to learn it from a fellow blogger}

tulipa_turkestanica3

Happiness is hearing that the temperatures are going to be warmer and you can get out into the garden beds again.
Hallelujah!

Primrose_Yellow

Happiness are Primroses or bright yellow….

Prinrose_Magenta

or maybe hot magenta.
What makes your little gardeners heart happy?

Happy Gardening,
Lona

To prawda, że nam dużo wiosną do szczęścia. Wystarczy kilka pierwszych kolorowych kwiatów w naszych ogrodach. Pozdrawiam

Beautiful!

My little gardener's heart is happy at the sight of daffodils so joyous in the sunshine, the scent of earth warming in the sun and the sounds of the wind in the treetops.

Your place is looking more like spring every day.

You are right Lona, it doesn't take much to make a gardener happy and smiling...looking around and see your garden is blooming with bright and beautiful flowers! Your sweat, tears and hard work is all worth it after all!

Daffodils make me smile, knowing that warmer weather is just around the corner. Someday. Around here, it should arrive by July 4th. Fingers crossed!

Spring gives us gardeners a lot to smile about! I love your tulip turkestania. Happy Gardening!

Reading posts like this makes me happy. Our joy of being out, seeing what's coming up, what's blooming, and then seeing what other bloggers have is a wonderful thing.

A couple days ago, I knocked on the door of a stranger's house to ask for a start of a rudbeckia with double flowers that I've been admiring for a number of years. She gave me the trowel, and trusted me to dig a couple clumps. She said she'd come over and see if I had anything she'd like a start of. That makes me happy, too.

As always your photos are just the best. I just was looking at your nature photos on your other blog too- your blogs are real gems.

Lona it's as if I've transported the plants from my garden over to yours. My little erica heathers are just laden with blooms aswell though the hellebores have been flowering for months now and the Brunnera has just started flowering. I love that magenta primrose - you captured the colour perfectly. Like you looking out and seeing so many things coming into flower makes me happy too.

sweetbay said...

Yay spring! You must be very happy to see these beautiful sights.

One said...

Your photos are gorgeous. How did you make them pop like that?

The Redneck Rosarian said...

Lona, I have never seen a daffodil that I did not smile! Such a cheerful and welcome bloom. Happy Spring!
