longing




Grey's Greenhouse


This picture was taken May 25, 2011.


Yes, that's how long we have to wait here in  eastern
Canada to see some colour in our landscape.


That's what I'm longing for.

Only 2 1/2 months or 75 days to go!

Are you longing for spring colour too?


Blessings,

Pamela

  1. Hello Pamela:
    We are, of course, very conscious, although we have no personal experience, of the length of the Canadian winter. Already here in Eastern Europe we are enjoying days which, although still cold, are the messengers of spring.

  2. Yes I am quite ready. We can start planting about the first of May here in Ohio. I usually wait a few more weeks just to make sure nothing dies. :o) Thank you for sharing all of that color. Certainly something to look forward to!

  3. And we have color all winter long with our pansies. It's too hot in the summer to survive here so they are winter flowers. But they come most alive in the spring. I'd trade some of our color for a week or two of your winter snow!

  4. Oh--yes I know--it is raining here in NW AR--and seems more like April--so now I am wondering what April will be like. Pretty color.

  5. I have pansies and primulas planted, but I am longing for the sunshine to go with them. This morning when I took the photos for my post, the sun was shining. Within an hour it was raining - then we had sleet and about 5 minutes of snow. Crazy weather!

  6. I am longing but 60 degree sunshine weather and a chance to work outdoors fed my soul!

  7. Perhaps we need to get ourselves some pansies that might withstand the cooler temps just for some color. That is a beautiful photo!

  9. Hi Pamela
    We're pretty much in the same boat - never plant annuals until after the 24th of May. Most years I cheat and do it by Mother's Day.

  10. Hi Pamela, as you know from Facebook and my blog we are having some Spring like days here in the UK and our daffodils are in full flower as are our crocus, Camellia's and Forsythia!!

    Phil and I were sitting in the conservatory yesterday after 4 hours of gardening and having a lovely cup of tea, saying that was the type of day we like, sun, warmth but not too hot!!

    Do you grow plants and flowers in a greenhouse or conservatory?

    Time flies so much, that Spring will soon be with you, have a good week, love Jackie in Surrey, UK.x

  13. Hi Pamela!

    My tulips and daffodils arrive in Spring to brighten things up, but I usually wait till after May 15 to plant annuals, herbs and vegetables as it can still be cold and damp here. Your garden center looks lovely!

  14. Hi Pamela! Oh, I just hate to tell you this, but it was 73 degrees here today. I've already got some plants in pots outside. Well, we're really very tropical and don't get very cold weather. This year our grass has stayed green all year long.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  17. Hi Pamela, I don't think we have that long to wait but spring is coming very slowly here. We even had snow today! Love your latest barn photo. Hope you are well and thanks so much for stopping by. xo – g
