recalling color


This is an old/new post. 

I'm borrowing a post-full of color from last March, when I put up these images as a Wordless Wednesday.
I hope if you remember them, you won't mind seeing them again. 
But then, who could mind an eyeful of such luscious color?

The original post recently began garnering a lot of anonymous nonsensical comments - hundreds per day - so I reluctantly took it down a few weeks ago. 
But now I'm glad, because it gives me a reason to put it back up today!

P.S. Thank you so much for your comments on the previous post.
Much appreciated!

P.P.S. Because I am effectively republishing the original post, I think the original comments are going to come along too. Interesting!

P.P.P.S. This morning I ordered SEEDS!

    1. It was the annual Spring Bulb display at the Smith College plant house in Northampton, MA. A totally wonderful place to be, for a couple of hours of spirit-enrichment! (Before the next snowstorm hit. Ah well.)

    1. Me too :) It was snowing again when I woke this morning. Ice underfoot everywhere. Being in that plant house, surrounded by color and sweet scents and warmth, was a lovely contrast to the lingering winter season!

  5. I can just smell that delicious aroma emanating from those spring flowers...sorry, got a bit wordy there! LOL But it's true! This time of year we all crave a little cheering up having spent the winter in the color grey. Lovely photos!

      The aroma of the hyacinths in particular was lovely!

  6. So pretty and vibrant and clean! I was just saying to my friend Mona yesterday that the green here is not really green -- more of an olive drab. Everything at the moment is dusty. My poor plants can't breathe from all the dust. Wishing you a wonderful day. Tammy

    1. Does rain come and wash everything bright from time to time? I hope so!
      I have also noticed the different landscape "palettes" in places visited or lived in. It was very dramatic after living in the desert and high-elevations of the Southwestern US to come back to New England again.

  11. Ok, I'm commenting from my I pad and if I ever press the back button it freezes! Does anyone else have that problem? What I was goin on to say was that our winter has been so cold and looong that we are grateful this year for the scattiest of spring blooms. Thank you for commenting on my blog, yes I found this exercise so helpful, I have knitted a few pairs of socks previously but now I get the full picture!

    1. You're right, Sandra, it's the annual Spring Bulb Show at the Smith College greenhouses in Northampton MA. Only a few weeks away now, which is hard to believe but certainly a happy thought!

  15. That pansy!!! oh, just lovely. I went back more than once to scroll through all this lovely stuff. The scents were so nearly there, too, even in pictures. I'm also tired of the grey scale, white to black, no color otherwise of our winter landscape. Well, we do have green here and there, with evergreens and the rare occasions when grass shows, but it's not enough, I tell you!

    1. This is one reason I love following blogs all around the world. So many gardens are full of color - and fresh vegetables! - right now, while I'm still walking on two feet of snow.
