Congrats on your new "stuff", and your gorgeous flowers! It is so cold down here tonight as well. I am ready for the 70 degree mark to stay for the rest of the year!!! :)

Darla: Beautiful flowers, any white we had this morning is gone with a big snowfall expected. We will get to Spring one day.

Noelle said...

Black Gold indeed! I hope your beautiful flowers fare well through the frost :^)

Tom said...

I think the Crocus are really nice...

The Winners Shield looks well in your sidebar.. but would look much more at home in mine.. ha! you keep it polished for when I win it next week..

My Mother's Garden said...

Lovin' those pics of the pansies and violas! How exciting...a big pile of compost! Your garden is going to be so happy and healthy.

Autumn Belle said...

Everything is beautiful!

Susie said...

Nice blooms Darla! You know you're a true gardener when you get all excited about compost! hehe!

Lois said...

Gorgeous flowers Darla!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

The flowers are all so pretty, it practically looks like summer! But that big pile of compost might be the prettiest thing on here today :) I'd love to get a big load like that delivered here soon.

Becca's Dirt said...

Beautiful flowers especially the pansy. Wow! What I am interested in is the compost. It looks so rich and dark.

RainGardener said...

Everything looks bright and cheerie. Must be nice to live in Florida. ;-) We had 4 beautiful days but the nights froze and that concerns me with all of the flowers so far ahead of schedule here. Hope they're ok.

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

I see a lot of hard work in your future. How is that for physic vision? Oh well it could have been your picture of all that compost. It looks wonderfully rich. Your pansies and violas are so pretty Darla. I just have to laugh each time I see that Bluebird header. Just love it.
Have a wonderful weekend and don't work too hard lady.

Rosie said...

I would love that black gold too along with some of those lovely blooms you have. My pansies are still refusing to flower.

Grace Peterson said...

Darla~~ Yummy compost!! I can practically hear your earthworms shouting in ecstasy.

Would you believe my Loropetalum has buds? Not as far along as yours yet but getting there.

Troy said...

My snide side says I should ask which one is the compost and which is the snotty neighbor...

But my un-snide side won out.

I do most of my blogging with our two year old princess on my lap. When she saw your flowers she started clapping and saying "pretty flowers" so you got theultimate vote of approval.

Dani said...

I LOVE COMPOST! Totally doing a happy dance for you. :)

Ginger said...

WOAH major compost jealousy!!

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Look at that pretty compost! Oh, and the flowers are pretty, too. How exciting! I have some aged horse manure waiting to be picked up. I plan to compost it. I hope to get it before the temps get warm.

Prospero said...

Hi Darla.

I'm thinking about compost. Do you still have your Tithonia diversifolia? The leaves from this plant make excellent compost. The leaves decompose very quickly (about 2 weeks) and are full of nutrients, especially phosphorous (which is unusual for a green manure). Check out the plant on the internet and you'll see what I mean. Farmers in Africa are using it to sustainably cultivate their land.

marmee said...

i like the last line in your post...you are thankful for the little things in life that mean so much. that always has to be kept in the front of our thoughts.
we have nothing blooming here except inside...i long to see the garden come alive again.
what's this about a new washing machine>? i just got a new one this week too. it is so much more quiet.
happy february

Twisted Fencepost said...
