Begonia2I am counting down to spring….  This photo was taken from Roger Williams Conservatory in Providence, RI.

Today, I had the chance to check on the plants in the garden.  I saw bulbs sprouting.  There is a little peony head coming up too.  My spring ritual has begun – counting the bulbs that shoot out from the ground – everyday.

Have a beautiful day. 🙂




  1. We now winter in Florida but I remember this ritual all too well. I hate to say it, but I almost miss the excitement of slowly seeing my plants come alive. 😉 We will return to Michigan the middle of April so I should see some nice growth by then – but will miss my daffodils.

    • It took me a few years to get used to the seasons. There was a time when I wanted a perpetual spring. I guess that is why I made my spring countdown. I wanted to see colors year round, just as I did in the tropics.

  2. I’m excited that Spring is here. Beautiful flower that gives a preview of what this season has to offer. God bless.

  3. Beautiful red begonias! There’s nothing sprouting here yet, as we are getting dumped with a big snow storm right now with a SNOW DAY! I get so excited at the thought of sprouting bulbs and new leaves. I can’t wait until spring!
