It's everywhere, it's everywhere.........Spring!

At least in the Ozarks and coming soon to a neighborhood near you!

jonquils or daffodils...I always get them mixed up.  Lambs soft, I can't help but reach down and rub the leaves............
Ajuga with its little purple flowers...........
and of course, I can't leave out the dandelions............
all of these grow wild here in Arkansas and even the daffodils have naturalized in many areas but not my precious Rosemary and Oregano which are able to Winter outside here.  My Rosemary is like a big evergreen bush now and the oregano seems to do well nearby under the protection of the Rosemary.

Even the little "puffballs" (fungi) on the North side of the house are all up.....don't they look like someone planted eyeballs?  If you step on them a puff of what looks like smoke emanates from the hole in the middle and carries thousands of spores into the wonder they're all over the place!
 And I left this pot of tulips out and forgot about it and lo and behold here they come!

 I brought them in the house now so I can have some blooms inside again this year!  Sometimes I think my plants are grateful when I ignore them! LOL!  So.........Happy Springtime everyone!


  1. It's not here in Minnesota. My husband is shoveling snow off of our roof right now.

  2. Wow, you weren't joking! No blooms quite yet here...but soon I hope! Those eyeballs are crazy!! Great post Sam. Thanks for stopping at P3 today. :)

  3. Beautiful. I can't wait for spring.

  4. Loved seeing your spring flowers today! It is amazing how some plants do seem to thrive on neglect isn't it? I have lots of bulbs coming up now and some snowdrops and hellebores in flower as well as a few crocus....I do love this time of year!
    Enjoy your week!

  5. It's remarkable to pay a quick visit this site and reading the views of all mates on the topic of this article, while I am also eager of getting know-how.

  6. Those puff balls do look like eyes!

    I'm hoping spring is right around the corner. The daffodils are in bloom but we're still having hard freezes now and then!

  7. No site of Spring here in South Carolina.. We actually had SNOW which is a rarity in my part of the state and then everything was covered in ICE on Sunday.. Today is raining and cold.. How I wish Spring would come. I miss the flowers and everything being green. My allergies definitely doesn't agree but my soul does :)
