Today's post is of these lovely roses I took pictures of about a year ago. They are from the Maplewood Rose Garden in Rochester New York. I had originally intended last March in making a post that would dedicate Rose images to individuals but then sort of strayed away from that and have revisited this post in another form. I just want to say thank you to all my lovely followers, new and old, you are all as beautiful as these flowers are. Thank you so much, I love you all, MT

5 A Honey Bee enjoying the first nectar of spring last year. That was March 16th of last. Not like this spring but we are close after the snow melts away. The Bee is on a Crocus Flower that come up in our yard every spring since we've bean here. They started this spring but they've bean under 3 feet of snow since last week but it is melting off. Well, enjoy these shots from last year blooms. 71110

4 These are some shoots that I took today in the back yard of the first flowers coming up for us.  The first two images are of Traditional Snowdrops. They are just lovely. The third is Cloth of Gold Crocus and the last is Tommies Crocus. Our Tulips, Daffodils and Hyacinths are starting to make an appearance as well, just poking through the ground.  Enjoy :) 5 6

94 Today I thought that I would share a group of Wildflower shoot that I Took back in 2013 around my general area of Central New York State. Starting to get a lit Spring Fever setting in with the anticipation of it's coming gifts like birds, flower, insects and a hole lot of warm green coloration. It's a bout a month and maybe a half out from here in my parts even though we are having unseasonable warm weather a gain here. Some of my friends are already collecting sap from there Maple Trees and we do have some of our spring plants staring to pock out of the ground that we have noticed. Anyway, enjoy this small collection from the past, MT flowers09797flowers127127 Red Cloverflowers130130 Daisyflowers149149 Speedwellflowers150150 Hawkweedflowers183183 B-eyed Susanflowers278278 Aster Sorry, I do not have the names of the first two flowers image, (94) and (97).
