Only Blogger knows why the pictures didn't publish on my first try (now deleted.)

And these were taken this week!

Oh, I love the primroses...never seen them growing. Are they little bitty or size of crocus? Luscious. Your camera and your eye combine to give beauty.

Martin said...

Well worth waiting for!

Barb, these are the little primroses you find for sale in the grocery store this time of year. I enjoy them in the house then plant them outside and they return the next year. These are in their third year.

Martin -- nice new personal icon!

So your beautiful photos have me googling the Nikon D90 and dreaming camera dreams. I have a Canon Rebel that I got in 2007, but it just doesn't seem to be taking very good photos anymore. It wasn't cheap, so it's odd that the quality of the photos seems degraded, the light "off"... I wonder if something happened to it. Anyway, I have a new dream, a Nikon D90 dream. Where did you get yours??

Ah, like a breath of fresh air! Great pictures.

Kath said...

Such a delight. My family once rented a house in McLean, VA whose front lawn looked like an Easter egg hunt in the spring when all the crocus sprang up. So many colors! One of my neighbors here has crocus blooming. She credits the busy chipmunks with this bit of landscaping.

Only Blogger knows! So true.I'm glad your tried again--absolutely lovely photos!

Brenda -- Merisi in Vienna recommended the Nikon, as did another friend. I got mine online from Adorama in NYC. The only lens I have is an all-purpose Nikkor 18-200 -- good for close ups and for distance -- though not, of course as good as a serious macro lens and a serious telephoto, But I don't want to spend time changing lenses as most of my shots are spur of the moment. If money were no object, I'd also have the macro and the telephoto just for days when I had time to do nothing but take pictures.

Lovely flowers!
It's already spring in your country ?
a few days ago, we could admire snow!
Thanks for your kind comment on my blog! (I rarely dare to show myself!)

Reader Wil said...

It's lovely to see the first signs of spring in the garden! So far I have only wee little snowdrops!

Star said...

I can never get enough of Spring flowers and these are gorgeous.

Joan said...

Yes indeed.. well worth waiting for!

Frances said...

Lucky you, Vicki, to already have these friendly spring flowers doing their show well before winter ends. I do hope that a sneaky frost won't stop their show.
