I just followed a fellow gardener to your page... LOVE IT! Thank you for sharing your love of gardening on the web with me. I just added you to my list of favorite BLOGS! Warm Wishes from my garden in the Midwest.
Very pretty--and interesting to see the progression!
You did great- I love the color, it looks like it has a very slight blue hue in the last photo.
Nice photos! Beautiful colors...are they the colors of spring?! (fingers crossed...)
I love the time lapse photos too! Very pretty, I just uncovered plants and took some photos of what Jack Frost tried to do here.
Gorgeous photos Catherine!I can't see any of my plants as they're all still buried under several inches of snow!
Wonderful pics. It is neat photographing them opening in stages and seeing the changes in color, etc.Enjoy ~ FlowerLady
Yours is way a head of mine. I can't wait until mine wake up! I love these plants. Yours time lapse is superb.
That looks great. It's fun to see the changes happening around your garden.
Beautiful photos Catherine. I hope their awakening is a sign of spring! I'm afraid to pull the mulch away from any of my plants yet ~ I think it's just a touch to early even tho our snow is melted (for now). Have a great weekend.
Bren - Thank you so much. I look forward to going and visiting your blog.Jan- Thanks, it is kind of fun to see since I don't always take the time to notice each flower.Tessa - I love these plants because the color changes so much while they are blooming.Aerie-el - I hope they are a sign spring is coming soon!Darla- It was fun to try. I'll be over to see your new photos.Nutty Gnome - Hope you have some nice surprises when your snow melts. Have fun in it til then.FlowerLady - It is fun to see the changes. The colors are so pretty one these.Tina - I was surprised to see it blooming already. They are usually not this early, but a nice surprise.Melanthia - I'm so happy that things are changing. New growth on lots of things finally!Kathleen - It does seem early. I think they get pretty good protection where they are, maybe that's why they bloomed early. Hope things warm up for you!
Very nice pictures - that's a great idea - I'll have too try it too, if you haven't patented it! Best wishes, VW
VW - please do try it, I'd love to see your photos. I definitely haven't patented it :) I think I'll probably try it on some camellias that are looking like they are ready to bloom.
Beautiful. I love the color gradations. I'm going to have to take a look at mine.
Grace - Hope you get a nice surprise and find buds on yours. It's the only one in my yard that even has buds, let alone flowers on it.
That's beautiful, Catherine! It definitely looks like a sleeping plant waking up slowly! Great captures!
I like the idea of time-lapse photography for blogging! In fact it's an excellent idea.I love your header photograph. It's just beautiful.
Chandramouli - Thanks! It was fun to see the changes.sweet bay - Thanks. I think I might try it on some more flowers that are looking reading to bloom. Thanks for the compliment on the header. I can't wait until it's looking like that again!
Catherine, Is your pulmonaria "Raspberry Splash?" This is the variety I've just ordered and can Hardly wait to be able to add it to my yard!!! :-) Beautiful photos and a very clever idea!!
Shady Gardedner - I think it might be Roy Davidson If I remember correctly. There is another type in the front, but it's nowhere near flowers, just foliage. I bet you'll be happy to see your new one!
