Floral Friday

Tricia from is hosting "Floral Friday" this week.  I decided to walk around my yard to see what plants had started to awaken from a very long winter's sleep here in Missouri.

Here are some sights that put a smile on my face.

Violets and Violas

Your flowers are magnificent! Your garden must look stunning. I'm so jealous you have ranunculus growing so well. I've never been able to successfully grow them. Thanks for taking part in floral friday. Wishing you a happy weekend!

I wish that my redbud looked like that!!! Sadly I am not sure if my baby tree pulled through the winter. Such beautiful beautiful blooms popping through in your garden friend! It made me smile!!! I hope you are well and your salad rocks!!! Nicole xoxo

I miss Krogers! lol

Used to shop there faithfully for years when I lived in the south. Who'd have thought they'd (like Home Depot up here in Indiana) would have these gorgeous flowers! I always saw them in catalogs and heard they made terrific cut flowers. I'm loving what you have blooming! All that gorgeous color....

The violas are so sweet! I am looking forward to planting in the garden this weekend. Seattle is finally warming up a little and hopefully some of the mud will dry up! Happy Friday. leslie

Wow..are ranunculas perennials in you area? They are my fav, but only annuals here in NC. I've planted lettuce in tubs before and have always enjoyed the countrified look!
Enjoy your wonderful variety of flowers while they last!
Thanks for stopping by with your kind compliment on my herb garden in my kitchen. I tried to respond,but you are a no comment blogger :(
Enjoy your weekend!

Colorful, your garden is full of colors. I especially love Ranunculus. I bought some bulbs and planted them two weeks ago. They haven't come out yet. Hope mine would be as pretty as yours.

Love your violets and violas. Wild violets have invaded our side yard and they're beautiful.I know, some don't like them in their lawn, but I don't mind. Your Ranunculus are gorgeous. I should try them. Are they easy to grow?

Diane said...

So lovely - your garden must look absolutely gorgeous right now! Thanks for sharing all of the beautiful colors with us!!
