In a Vase on Monday – Eclipsing Spring

“An eclipse is one phenomenon that is actually more impressive from the ground.” ~Leroy Chiao

Today we are lucky to be in the path of totality of the solar eclipse. I will be watching it from my back patio later this afternoon, and praying the clouds do not obscure it. And with this eclipse, spring has started.

The cold 40s and 30s of last week, with the lashing rains, hail and snow mixed in, has put a damper on the blooms. And although the weather may not be the warm winds and sun you would find with a soft spring, it is early spring none the less.

I was able to get out and rescue some lovely blooms again that were brave enough to bloom as the weather finally started to warm.

Iris reticulata and puschkinia, and finally Glory of the Snow (at the top of the post).

Squill and snowdrops still blooming too.

With this vase, I am joining in with the wonderful meme, In A Vase On Monday, from Cathy at  Rambling in the Garden.

All the pictures shared in this post were taken with my Nikon Coolpix or iPhone camera, and manipulated on my iPhone using the apps, Pixlr and Prisma.
