Thank you so much for the hope of spring. I went to your post and said ahhhhh... I look forward to this years gardening. It's getting close!

That's an impressive array of blooms, and so beautifully photographed. At this season (still winter in Montana, though with frequent day-time thaws) I oscillate between pure envy (okay, jealousy) of those whose gardens are already full of growing things, and a deep, vicarious pleasure at seeing them. Talk about split personalities.

Pretty! I love them. We have many of the same plants. :) (Xeriscape, desert plants, huh?)

Mo,
Your blooms are lovely! I just love the prickly pear - probably because they are such a rarity here. I have also taken a liking to the Golden Barrel Cactus. Oh yes, and Agapanthus. What the heck am I doing in zone 4!!?? :)

Thank you for visiting Hocking Hills Gardener. I will be back to visit you too!

Thank you Tatyana. Love your beautiful northwest garden. I long to move up your way in the not too distant future. :)

Thank you Amber. Is spring on its way for you in Nevada yet? Are you in central Nevada, or up north?

Yes, it wont be long for you now Gail. About the same time as I am cringing at the thought of our very long, very hot summer. :(

Haha Kate. Thanks for stopping by. I will be along to visit you again shortly.

Yes Leaner, I imagine we have many of the same "xersicapey" plants. I have some of the thirstier plants in pots on the patio like honeysuckle, cyclamen, and jasmine. They are an indulgance I am afraid along with the veggie garden!

Liisa, I have some rather small golden barrel cactus' and I also love them. Oh and you are welcome down here in zone 8 anytime!

Thanks Bo, I am actually rather dispirited with our yard at the moment. It all looks so fragmented. I want so much to get rocks put down to replace the grass, (AKA dust bowl), but will have to wait for now. I think when we do it will bring it all together so much better.

Wonderful pictures, Mo.

I'm so jealous. My old Nikon doesn't take a best pictures anymore. Not sure why.
