Your idea of February and our idea of February are vastly different!

Lois said...

Very pretty photos Lowell. All of my azaleas are blooming now too and interestingly enough, so is my Christmas cactus. I think it forgot that it already bloomed back during the holidays!

Linda said...

Beautiful photos, Lowell! You have made my day! Thank you so much for sharing.

Andy said...

Your February is so much nicer than mine.

Michelle said...

Nice to see the color from the Azalea. Bits of color are just starting to pop out around here.

Loved the landscapes!

You have way better spring flowers over there than we do here. No azaleas or camellias here -- these remind me of Oregon, which I miss in early spring. A lot. But it is so nice here too!

Kay said...

You're enjoying things we're not likely to see for a month or two.

Looks like spring has sprung. Beautiful blossoms.

That white iris with the purple and yellow in its center grows here like weeds! (Very pretty weeds.)

Marleen said...

Nice scenes, Lowell. The azaleas are lovely and the iris is very colourful!

Such beautiful colors in February, a dream !
Great photos, Lowell !

Sharon Anck said...

You are surrounded by color and beauty! A perfect place to be.

How great that spring has arrived in your area. March is our major snow month. The good thing is that snow never lasts long in March. The sun has enough power to melt it within a day or two.

RedPat said...

It is wonderful to see the flowers, Lowell! We have a few buds up but they are waiting for some sun to come and tempt them into opening up.

Kate said...

I have such a longing for colour so you post, esp with the azaleas kid so welcome!!

I'll swap you your February for my February Lowell, my husband would love to be teeing off on such a crisp day as this 😊

Winter is such a harsh season! I know we're suffering just like you are.
