Christina the yellow saffron is really beautiful and with the sun it looks more beautiful. The Euphorbias are wonderful and the contrast with the yellow saffron I love. I’m glad you have sun and I hope it’s not cold. Greetings from Margarita.
Very cold here Margarita but I think it is colder in Madrid.
Christina in Madrid has risen the temperatures in two days by 10ºC and today we have a maximum of 14ºC! Although at least -1ºC it is nothing compared to what we have had. And on top of it the sun shines. It seems to me that you are much colder. Take care and keep the heat. Greetings from Margarita.
Actually the temperatures were the same as that here today.
Like little cups made of sunshine. Gorgeous!
That’s a nice description.
Gorgeous! I love crocus. It’s too bad it doesn’t love my little part of the world.
Are there bulbs that grow well in your area?
So cheerful. Just what I needed!
Looks like spring has sprung!
A little taste anyway.
Those yellow crocuses gladden my heart – so cheerful!
To find them suddenly as I walked around the garden made them even better.
Lovely cheerful sight, I have problems with crocus bulbs, they get dug up and eaten if I plant them. But I do have plenty of ‘tommies’ spreading around that must have been planted long ago. Love your bright yellow ones.
These yellow ones have been in the ground for ages and seem to increase a bit; others are not so happy.
These new signs of life are so uplifting, aren’t they Christina? And it doesn’t take many degrees increase in temperature to trigger them – it’s such an exciting time, with the lighter mornings and later afternoons too
Yes, they are. I think the increasing light levels have more effect than the temperatures.
And today it was noticeably lighter first thing, almost as if there is a definite turning point when the rate of new growth will accelerate
