    They're both gorgeous! I can see how hard it must have been to choose just one. Did you use a macro lens?

    Jean -- Thanks, it really was difficult to choose. I used the macro setting on my little Canon Powershot for the lupine photo, but the crocus shot was just the close up manual setting. But I got the camera really close for both shots.

    Heather, I love the lupine! I noticed mine were awakening, too, and was surprised. Not sure why I was, but it's so early. Good luck in the contest! It's a beautiful photo!

    Kylee -- Thanks! I was completely surprised by my lupine too, it's weeks early to see it. We're all walking around on eggshells here in CT. We're sure that there's going to be another huge winter storm after touching the 70s over the weekend.

    Beautiful! I can't believe your crocus are open in CT, and down here in PA I don't have a single bloom yet.... it must be the back yard here, because our neighbors daffodils are all in bloom too, and mine are not even close. It doesn't seem like the light is that much different in our back yard, but it must be!

    Fields of Heather -- Thanks! I actually have 2 daffodils blooming today -- much earlier than they did last year. And we drove around doing errands today and the crocuses and daffodils are out everywhere, so it's not just my sunny foundation garden blooming. I'm still waiting for one last big winter storm to hit.


    Of all 71 entries in the GGW photo contest, I like your lupine the very best (and there are some fabulous entries). We'll see if Mr. Holt agrees with me. P.S. I think you made the right choice between the two photos.

    Caroline -- As I wrote on your blog, your photo was one of my favorites. Thank you for your very kind words. I wish the winner would be posted already -- it seems like it's taking a long time this month!


    Wow, I SO love your photo. I wish I could grow lupines. And crocuses for that matter. Sigh.

    Forest -- Thanks! It does seem like we get the better end of the arrangement here in the Northeast. We might have to bring in tender perennials to overwinter, but we can grow crocus, daffodils, and lilacs, just to name a few.
