Springtime Renewal, Pasadena-Style: Photos

by Lian on March 26, 2013

Wisteria in full bloom

I arrived home Sunday afternoon from my father’s funeral. After a cold, sad weekend in Connecticut, I was amazed to see that in my absence, Spring had arrived in Pasadena. My whole yard seemed to be in bloom or about to burst- the wisteria, the jasmine, those pink flowers whose name I don’t know. I thought I’d share some photos because I know many of you are still stuck in snow, winter refusing ot let go.

Here’s to a litte springtime renewal for all!

A wall of sweet smelling jasmine and some yellow flowers I call roses but aren't actually roses.


Welcome Hummingbirds! The garden will be full of them this year.


My Easter Bunny

My purple iceberg roses ready to bloom


Hmmm. what are these pink beauties?

I hope you have your own Spring Awakening soon.

Embracing my Chaos, Lian

In my neighborhood, I have found one crocus and a couple bunches of snowdrops. And the skunk cabbage is starting to come out :) Spring is definitely on the way!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers!

Just beautiful. What a refreshing way to be welcomed home – still waiting in Massachusetts for any sign of spring!

That is fantastic.. In my neck of the world we got 2″ of snow the other day. It is melting fast but still muddy and no pretty flowers like you are able to enjoy.

What a wonderful home coming for you!
