Favorite Things Friday - Early Spring Blooms

TGIF!  What a week!  Work has been busy, but I made a bit of headway today on some backlogged things that needed to get off my to do list.  Now, I can enter the weekend with a few less things on my mind.  

I'm a bit late in posting today.  I had to be at work early this morning  (6 AM) and just didn't have time to get a post together before I left. I did give the post some thought during the day.  Some times it's hard to pick just one favorite thing, but it wasn't too hard to find an easy favorite this week.  Last Sunday was gorgeous, sunny and warm.  The first day like that in weeks.  To top it off, we were at My Guy's family farm, which is a wonderful place to wander around with your camera.  I got lucky and found a few colorful signs of spring, always a favorite, but especially so this year with the colder than typical March we've had. 

The tulips, which are probably my favorite flower on the farm, weren't blooming yet.  But there was still enough color popping up through the dead leaves and in the greening glass to show that spring is indeed on the way.  

That's it for my favorite thing this Friday.  Check out all the other cool favorites over at Quilting in My Pyjamas.

So pretty! What is the blue flower in the 2nd photo? I really like it. I noticed yellow columbine blooming this afternoon and thought I'd take a picture after I finished pulling weeds, but it got dark before I finished. Maybe tomorrow if it's not too windy.

Lovely photos. We wound our clocks back this morning and there's a definite nip in the air to remind us that we are in the middle of autumn!

Im racing in here late to my own linky party Kate and I apologise.

There is nothing like seeing the first flowers of spring after winter. For me its usually the blossoms on our cherry tree and it means the fantastic weather is on the way. Enjoy your Spring blooms!

Lovely pictures, spring is a dim dark memory. We are having an Indian Summer at the moment and everything is pretty dry. The days are quite lovely and the night cool but I know it is going to break soon because the kids have 2 weeks holiday and it is bound to rain.
I love bulbs and watching them spring to life, maybe I will get some more this year.
