A Short Little Escape

I recently took a little escape from the cold to go see the Winter Flower Show that is going on in the Sunken Garden at the Como Park Zoo & Conservatory.  It’s something I always tend to do around this time of year to feed my garden starved soul during the long winters here.  I was a bit pressed for time and didn’t get to stay there as long as I would have liked to, so a trip back there again to better soak it all in will definitely be in order sometime in the near future.  But it was a nice little gardening fix to tide me over in the meantime, and such a wonderful flowery escape.

In being pressed for time, I didn’t take very many photos while I was there.  Plus because of the extreme temperature differences between the sub zero temps outside and the tropical temps inside, my camera lens was fogging up quite a bit, and never did completely regulate to the tropics before I left.  But I do have a few to share that turned out okay.  Funny that they’re all in various shades of pink and yellow…


These little gems really caught my attention with their bright, cheerful colors.  Is there anything sweeter than the happy little ‘faces’ of these adorable Primroses?


Like round little mounds of joy, they are…


They make me happy!  🙂

Just so darling…



It was unbelievably fragrant in there too, almost too much so, and I suppose these beauties were the culprits…


Or these…



I can’t even say how refreshing and delightful it was to see Spring blooming things sprouting up.  I really adored the white edges on these…


And I adored these daffodils too…



I never did get around to planting daffodils (or any other new spring flowering bulbs) in the flower bed last fall, and I’m regretting that now.

Oh well, the squirrels probably would have dug them up anyway, the little thieves!


Who me?


Yes, you!


Oops, how did that photo sneak in here?  He wasn’t at the Winter Flower Show.  But I bet he would have liked to have been haha!


I know, I sure enjoyed it.  😀

Happy Monday, or whatever day it is where you are, I hope it’s a lovely one!
