That Viola 'Tiger Eyes' is really nice. Love the bold stripes.


I can't imagine 8" of snow melting that fast! Your flower pictures are so pretty!

Kathleen, Fun post! I even saw a vinca blossom yesterday. lol. If your pond is around 2 1/2 feet deep, your waterlilies should be fine! I suppose you could just trim them back and sink them like you did the rest of your plants. :-) I used to have a little pond in the backyard (at our other home) that was only 2 feet deep. Because we are in Zone 4/5, the pond was too shallow to overwinter anything. A deeper pond would also overwinter fish!

These are just wonderful pictures. All are beautiful but I especially like the insect (I'm guessing Hover Fly) and the Viola. The Viola shot is really superb.


That yellow pansy is so pretty, that would cheer me up too! I just leave my water lily. My pond is just about 2 feet deep and they do fine. I'm usually too wimpy to reach in and pull the plants out to cut them back when the water is so cold. Our pond never freezes solid, maybe a couple of inches at most and I leave the waterfall going to leave an open spot for air to get to the fish. I never did clean mine this spring, but next spring I must!

Hi Kathleen, ah so you have had snow, lucky girl. For me Kathleen I think of the yellow colour as a typical spring colour and her you have almost a whole post filled with gorgeous yellow flowers and it is November. Love the arty artichoke too.


Hi Kathleen, that viola is so pretty. I know just how you feel. I found a dandelion out by the barn Friday and brought it inside;)

I picked up a few scrapbook papers on my trip. Found some that looked handpainted with textured paint and lots of glitter. Used them for my nieces first birthday party spread. Picked up some embellishments too but they didn't have as many as I hoped. We don't have many good choices in this area.


What a beautiful array of yellows to brighten my morning. I am really loving the picture with the honeybee. Great Macro shot!
