It won't be too long

. . . I hope.  I'm getting pretty sick of this frigid 

weather—a wind chill of -7°F (-22°C) when I woke 
up on Friday—and am looking forward
to daffodils popping up and flowering trees
like this one coming into bloom.  (I took this shot
on March 17 a few years ago, but that was a 

much milder winter than the one we're having; I'll
be curious to see when it blooms this year.)

[Linking back to Today's Flowers
and Shadow Shot Sunday.]


  1. Yikes, you're a trooper, Alexa ~ I think I'd be in a cryogenic state by now. :) That's a gorgeous bloom and I hope you get to see them again sooner rather than later. Have a beautiful Sunday, ma chère. x0

  2. This is so beautiful and I thank you very much for linking with Today's Flowers.

  3. p.s. I wish for you warmer weather :)

  4. Blossoms like this are worth the anticipation of spring and summer!

  5. I think the cold makes us appreciate the blossoms even more! Lovely photo.

  6. I want to dive in and breathe pink!

  7. My daughter's magnolia tree's buds are growing day by day....won't be long now. I'll post a photo. I love this one of yours. Magnolias were named for a 17th (or was it 18th...?) century French botanist, Magnol.

  8. I'm hearing that same complaint from my Uncle in northern Missouri. He's so ready for warmer weather. He's 81 and hasn't been out of the house in weeks due to the cold weather, snow and ice.
    Stay warm and it will be warm all too soon
