This is so beautiful Lowell....can't wait to feel some of that warm sunshine up here in the North Country and to see some of my flowering shrubs in bloom again. How lucky you are to have these beautiful blooms. I looked at your Stone Creek blog and the homes are really beautiful there. Hope you're getting lots of showings. Have a good weekend....I assume you'll be out on the golf course in that nice warm sunshine. Take care.

What a glorious photo, Lowell! Thank you so much for sharing it.

This gives me hope that there will be an end to winter. How lovely that you have flowers blooming!

Jack said...

That is pretty nice, Lowell. Isn't it cool having flowers and flowering bushes all winter long?

Randy said...

I do miss my warm weather plants from Arizona.

SRQ said...

Very pretty. But, warm? Are you actually warm up there? Because it's still quite chilly down here. I think there actually was a wind chill when I left work tonight. Not that I'm complaining, though. The summer temps will be here soon enough. Plus, I really like these cool nights --- great sleeping weather.

Now you're just trying to make all of us in the northern climes jealous! :-) Absolutely lovely, Lowell!

Wonderful, your photo exudes heat!

Bougainvillea? I just love it when two colors are entwined like this.

I'm not crazy about its thorns, though. Nor the fact that the blooms fall off everyday—too much sweeping!

sigh.

Beautiful. Sunny here today and I saw a few yellow blooms...

Sharon said...

That looks decidedly warmer than it is here today.

Karl Demetz said...

Wonderful, what a gorgeous scene and photo, Lowell.

Judy said...

Like music for the eyes, beautiful.

JM said...

Weather's been lousy here. Hope I don't have to wait much to take a similar shot of a blooming bougaivillaea. :-)

Lovely. I am waiting for blooming trees in Nowy Sacz.

tapirgal said...

I love bougaivillaea!

Showing off again! I suppose that's what you must do when you skip a season or two each year. But spring - the kind that 4 seasons locations have - is just around the corner here. So I won't have to stare at your flowers with envy too much longer, I suppose.

Growing wild!

I'm guessing you really want it to snow. Am I right?

Nice photo, even if there isn't any snow. :))

Looks like this is the place to be... leave the snow and the woolen clothes at home, and feel the spring.)
