Johnny Jump Ups...

are usually one of the first spring
flowers I buy for my front porch.

There is just something so 'happy' about them!

Maybe it's because it's one of the first
flowers I dare plant outside during the
fickle month of March since they will tolerate
the cold nights and even an occasional
spring snowfall.

Of course I always get some pansies
 now for the very same reasons.
This is also a great time to get some fresh
cut daffodils from your grocery store
at a very reasonable price.

Can you tell I'm anxiously awaiting spring's
Hope you are all enjoying sunny days
and warmer temps where you are too!


  1. Me, too, Diva! I am on my way this morning to do that very thing - acquire some pansies for me, and for my Mom's patio. Daffodils are my favorite flower. :) Happy almost Spring! xo Pam

  2. Loving those colors of spring...just picked up a little bundle of daffodils yesterday :)

  3. I have Johnny Jump Ups all over my yard that come up on their own, even in the gravel on the side of the house where the driveway is! lol They are the first flowers that come up even before the snow is completely gone. Such hardy plants when they look so delicate. We've been having absolutely beautiful weather over here and not much snow left in the yard now...very unusual for this time of year over here! Usually March is our stormiest month with snowfalls!! I'm sure not complaining though:-) xoxo

  4. I do love the Springtime...life begins anew. Ahhh...Wee Johnny with such a joyful, smiling face. A grand way to spend the day.

    Enjoy a lovely day Diva!

  5. Love the johnny jump ups I'm going to go right out and get some, and take a study break!!

  6. All your flower photos are beautiful!! The daffodils look so sunny and bright and being a purple gal of course, I love all the others.

  7. OOps! I've been leaving comments for days without realizing that I need to verify. Sorry! I love your pansies and johnny jump-ups. They really are hardy and delightfully cheerful!

  8. Well we have spring flowers and sunshine and longer lighter days but it's still very cold. Still, it's a promise of Spring soon to come!

  14. Diva,
    Your last couple of posts have are giving me spring fever! I love crocus, every year I promise myself I'll plant some, but I've never planted bulbs. I would love to have the sweet surprise in winter of their heads poking up thru the dirt. And the JJUps, love those too. Lisa
