ranunculus & more snow

the weekend flowers, purchased yesterday at a break in the snowy weather. thanks to the bride who could not use them, i have a vibrant pink spot in an otherwise white and weary weekend, strategically positioned so i can focus on them rather than on the scenery beyond. more snow today, more tomorrow. someone once commented that i don't like snow, when in fact, i do like it. i love snow. just not so much of it for so long, that's all.

Same here! I enjoyed taking photos the other day in our fresh snow but now I so want spring!!

Nora said...

The flowers are lovely and in one of my favorite colors. Too bad the bride couldn't use them. I hope her heart wasn't broken. Unlike you, I only like snow on the same day it falls. Beyond that I don't care for it. I'm a mild weather person and I should live in the sub-tropics. Enjoy your day.

I couldn't agree more. Even now as more snow is falling I can't help wondering at the beauty of it. And dreading another day of shoveling at the same time.

that is a beautiful photograph. as you suggested, i clicked on it and made it big, and wow, the flowers, that moment of spring and the snow beyond.

then i clicked on other photographs in other posts here, and i loved falling into them, and i will definitely be back.

thank you so much for coming by my blog and clicking the follow button. i look forward to getting to know you more, and to enjoying your photographs.

As I have often said, too much of a good thing is too much!

They are lovely. Spring is a little closer. The trees are budding in Texas if that's a consolation. Hopefully they will follow up north. xxoo jenny

I'm with you Chris-It's just that this winter has been ridiculous and we are really ready for spring this year in New England!
BTW, Many thanks for the tip about the Russian olive tree - I think you hit it on the head. I've googled it and yes, that looks like the culprit. Who'd have thought?!

Deedee: happy to help. i do love the challenge of identifying trees and flowers! Jenny Schouten Short: it's good to know spring is already happening somewhere. i'll be looking forward to your pictures. Tabor: you made me laugh! and i agree! Angella Lister: welcome and thank you for your kind words and susan t. landry, thanks for pointing me to Angella Lister! Laura: you are so right about falling snow. i never tire of watching it. and Nora: the flowers were left over from wedding bouquets and arrangements. somewhere, there's a bride who carried these beautiful flowers in her wedding this weekend!

thank you all for comments. lovely to spend a busy sunday watching as they came in. so happy others enjoyed the ranunculus, too!

Gorgeous flowers. I crave cut flowers at this time of the year when I am rushing the arrival of springtime. I can't often indulge myself because they don't last longer than two or three days.
