Spring Beauties

Spring seems very slow coming to Ohio this year, or maybe
I'm just being impatient.  Even the forsythia seem to be  reluctant
to show their color.  It has been cold this week with temps only in
the 30's and 40's and a touch of snow every now and then, but
these little beauties were brave enough to show their sweet faces.
 


 
I planted these bulbs years ago and every year I find some in new
places.  I don't think it's because they are propagating, but because the
squirrels are digging them up and moving them.  Now, I've never
really caught them in the act, but I know I didn't plant them in the grass.
 


And I know I didn't plant them with the roses either.
 


 
I used to dig them up and move them back to the flower beds, but
I gave up on that some time ago.  I have chosen simply to
enjoy these sweet things where ever I find them.




Maybe this is where the expression "bloom where you are planted"
comes from.

Beautiful!!! The only thing blooming around here are daffodils and it is suppose to snow tonight so I am afraid they are going to be short lived. ~~Sherry~~

Your bulbs are so lovely. I love blue in the yard.. note to self find some! I have day lilies that bloom everywhere - especially where they haven't been planted. Thanks so much for sharing.

Hopefully they won't end up taking over your whole yard! They sure are pretty though. Definitely no flowers here yet. It's way to cold!

I agree, Spring does seem slow this year. Bloom where you are planted does seem to be the right adage.

It's wonderful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays!

When the bloom is this delicate, it seems even more beautiful--especially in blue. Thanks for sharing your blues.

Happy Blue Monday.
