Winter Blooms

Winter here in the deep South is okay with me. Some years are very mild and I have been known to never put my winter coat on because of the warm weather. Now don't get me wrong...some years we do have some really COLD days...cold for us is in the 30's...now I know that's so funny to some of you. We have already had some really COLD days this year, so I'm not sure what to except for the next two months. Today I thought I would share with you some of my WINTER BLOOMS...hope they will put a smile on you face:)
                                                  Now y'all come back...real soon,
                                                                        Linda
                                                           A SOUTHERN favorite!
                                                                        Pansy LOVE!!!


                                     Soon my white camellia's will be blooming...can't wait!
                                                       All year long I enjoy my patio lights!

Linking up here!

Today I am not so jealous, but tomorrow when I arrive back to snow and cold I will be dreaming of your beautiful blooms!

Hi Linda, I actually recognize some of those flowers ;) Beautiful. I was thinking Spring will be here before we know it, and with all the rain some of the States have had, we should be filled with blooms. xoxo tami

I'm so envious! 30's for us is a warm spell these days. We were very fortunate to have a thaw last week and most of our snow and ice have melted away, now we have room for more!
I guess it will make spring that much sweeter....

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Beautiful photos, Linda. New camera?

Tammy @BeatriceBanks said...

Gorgeous blooms! I love the South!
Happy New Year!

Vicki said...

Good Morning Linda Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful share. I love, love the pansies most of all. They are one of my favorite Winter flowers. Always SO happy looking.

I love your patio lights as well. I promised myself in the Fall when we painted the house, I would get some for our patio as well. We painted the ceiling white and it will reflect the light, so in the Spring we are getting a ceiling fan for the patio and some lights. These are so pretty. I love the round shape. How big are these?

Have a gorgeous week sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Claudia said...

Have to say I'm jealous, Linda! Not a bloom in sight up here in the frosty north! Thanks for the beautiful photos.

You are a lucky, lucky lady. I am already counting the days until spring arrives in Ohio.

I was thinking about you this morning during my commute. The DJs were talking about the upcoming BIG GAME. I suspect you are beside yourself with excitement. Good luck! La

Shellbelle said...

Yep, that's why we love the South, well that and the food.

Happy New Year Linda, fabulous photos, you'll have so much fun taking classes.

Wow, What beautiful pictures. Yes, they put a smile on my face. They look like sunshine and spring all in one.
Thanks for sharing and for hosting your wonderful party.

Donnie said...

A lot of the flowers here in central Florida have gotten frostbitten. I enjoyed seeing your pretty photos.

I'll trade you a snow bank for a blossom?!!

Maryrose said...

Hi Linda,
I am lol at the picture of your patio light. As I was scrolling down and came to that I just had to chuckle. I love my patio lights too.
I am lucky enough to have warm weather here(So Cal) and feel a little guilty seeing all that snow and cold around the country. Your blooms are wonderful, enjoy them!!! Thanks for visiting me, come back often.

Beautiful pictures! My husband keeps trying to talk me into moving down south, so I will have to make sure he doesn't see any of these beautiful pictures, as we are buried in snow!
