February Colors in South Carolina

I had decided to not include my color pictures from South Carolina for Life Looms Large, because at first it was mostly more snow and I had the San Diego pictures that I hoped would make you smile.  But then despite the snow, we had a sign of spring….imageA week later there was still snow in the mountains….image And ice from the water that runs off the ground….image   But then 30 miles away, I found these….image imageimageWhile a bit confused, spring is making a showing…..  Hang in there – if we’re seeing it, you should be soon!

Oddly enough, I love that icicle picture. (The north must be taking over my brain.....I should be oohing and aahing over the flowers!!)

I love the flowers too of course!!

Good to see that spring is approaching you! That means it's on the way to us too!

These flowers are so delicate, beautiful photos! I agree with Sue: in about three months, spring will even have reached our latitude!
Have a nice weekend!

My goodness! Is that a flowering crab in bloom already? Ours won't bloom for months yet -after Memorial Day.

Honestly, I don't remember if it was a crab apple or a pear! They called it spring in San Diego - now here in SC it would be April at the latest

These are beautiful photos, i like to see your photos of a world that has the opposite seasons to us. We don't have cold so fierce that it stops a waterfall, that one in particular is amazing.
Thanks for your comments on mine too. Kaite

Thanks Katie. Calling that area a waterfall is rather generous. It can get cold here, but the water in the picture is also really a trickle to drops. They have just accumulated over time (likely months) to create these frozen areas. In fact there were much larger, but less photogenic ones where the water dripped from the granite above and fell to fallen tree branches below. The result were large icicles that were easily as big around as your fist!

Oh, my... these spring colors have really cheered me up! I won't see these colors for another six weeks. Thank you!
