Wednesday Vignette March 1, 2017

 Red Ranunculus, on a day which looks and feels like spring.  
Unfortunately.  Not that spring isn't lovely, but after spring is that other thing.  We had a real winter, the first since 2011, and it's hard to let go.

  1. "That other thing" Ha-ha. If we don't mention it, will it go away? Red, white and blue pictures very pretty.

    1. The "s" word--don't say it! The color combo is more that other thing than spring, but what the heck.

    1. Thank you, Titania. That pure clear crimson is joyful to me.

  3. Beautiful photos! Spring is just getting started here, and I'm relieved to finally leave winter behind. I'm going to try to enjoy spring and not think about what comes after, though the long-range forecasts look like the "s" word this year won't be as hot for us as the last two. I hope they're right.

    1. A mild...s. Wouldn't that be wonderful? Glad you liked the photos, and enjoy a beautiful spring.

  4. One can hope that the Other Thing is subdued this year.

    1. Or be a no-show. Wouldn't that be great?

  5. The Ranunculus look particularly wonderful backed up by the Geranium and Shasta daisies. I find I've been lulled into a false sense of security by this winter's rains. I've been eyeing all sorts of plants I have no business buying, somehow believing that the moist soil conditions are here to stay...

    1. Me, too, but then reminding myself this wonderfulness won't last. Fell to the temptation of two new roses. Hurts to see not only the rain, but the cool weather go. At least we enjoyed every minute of it, right?

      I actually planned that, red ranunculus with 'Rozanne' and the daisies. I think I might have finally learned something.

  6. Haha - I know that feeling of dread exactly. For as much as I love spring, autumn can't come soon enough after it's over. I am SO not an "s" word person...

    1. I can do without it as well. I can live without tomatoes, or be willing to try.

  7. Great shots of that bright red flower! Wonderful backed by Rozanne too.

    1. 'Rozanne' seems to work with everything.

  8. We can live in these moments and survive the ones we dread.

  9. A Philadelphia-area plantsman visited the Huntington today and posted lots of wonderful pics to his Twitter feed (@GaryRKeim). Thanks to your many excellent reports, I recognized the setting even before reading the captions.

    Hope temperatures stay mellow for months!

  10. Cool! More plants on Twitter, less of that other stuff. :)

    An abnormally cool summer would be heaven, but I have the feeling we'll be paying for the rain somehow.

  11. I have a 'garden' list on Twitter that acts as an antidote to the rest. Also have leavened my grimly political main feed by following samoyedsbot, which is helping a LOT.

  12. Being in the uk I live in hope of a 's...' where it is warm enough to sit outside ! It is a novelty to try and imagine a hot summer ! The uk idea of a hot summer here is two warm days and a thunderstorm!

    1. By the way, your blog (and garden) are awesome. It's what mine want to be when they grow up.

      I experienced a week of warm weather in the UK a while ago. The air was very very still it seemed everywhere; 24 C felt like how it feels when it is 35 C here with moist air coming up from Mexico...an entirely different experience.

  13. I love that red ranunculus, and it is a match made in heaven with the white and blue !

    1. It makes me happy looking at that. I hope it does the same for you.
