I didn't spot the anemone or strawberry. Isn't it a bit early for strawberry flowers?
How blessed you are to live in such close proximity to nature.

The weather is miserable and cold in Boston, the meeting I'm involved with is even worse and I miss my home and family very badly.

This hint of springtime at home is like seeing the light at the end of the tunnel: Thanks for your post - it has cheered me up no end.

I bet there are lots of lovely birds feeding in that undergrowth. It would be good camaflage for a cat like me to hide in and pounce.

They are all very lovely - the violet is my favorite - one of my all time favorites! When I was a young girl, I dug some up from my grandparents yard in the mountains and carried them home to the lowlands!

Let's hope those spring flowers survive the snow storms predicted for this weekend.

The same flowers grow in the meadows at the edge of the woods in my neighborhood, but the violets are mostly of the fragrant variety, a little bit darker in colour.

Hey, my strawberry patch is no where near flowering yet! We still have daffidols and tulips in bloom. Isn't it a relief to see the buds back on the trees? I can't wait for summer to arrive.
