Images And Words #205 ~ Spring Flowers

It's Week 205 of IMAGES AND WORDS. This week our host is Sue C, who has chosen the theme of Spring Flowers. 

After a really long cold winter, spring is only just starting to show a few signs of appearing where I live, so I raided my archive for a Spring flower from a couple of years ago.

  1. Not like you mentioned in your comment dropped on my entry, I can't identify the beautiful and exquisite flower I see on here. However, I can say: 'I do love this entry'! I do hope you join the party, soon...

  2. That's a super party you have there. Radiant colours with a sprinkling of sugar - lovely. Same here, no big signs of the Spring awakening, I saw my first daffodil in the garden today and the crocus sort of appeared a bit half heartedly.

    1. Thanks Pat. There have been some daffodils and snowdrops out for a couple of weeks here, but they seem to appear regardless of the weather. Still no blossom on the trees.
