Let's Party!






"Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party!'"
~ Robin Williams


My Freesia are blooming.
I have them in pots on the balcony.
I know spring is here when they start to bloom.


Freesia




I love the yellow ... such a happy color!

I found some more freesia bulbs well after the season last year.
Such a small little bulb to make pretty flowers.
I bought them and added them to the pots.
The pretty red is one of the new ones.




Freesia





"Spring won't let me stay in this house any longer! 
I must get out and breathe the air deeply again."
~ Gustav Mahler


Freesia



Freesias are strongly scented. 
They have five to 10 single or double flowers.
Stems are usually 10 to 18 inches long with little or no foliage.
The bell-shaped freesia blooms up to seven days and comes in
white, golden yellow, orange, red, pink, mauve, lavender, purple and bicolors.


I'm joining Sun Lit Sunday

and 

Mosaic Monday.


Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Thank you for this lovely post! These yellow flowers are like sunshine, so happy and cheerful, and so much needed now. :)
I had freesias in my wedding bouquet and have loved them ever since. Their fragrance is heavenly. I have never tried to grow them though, always thought it's difficult. What do you think?
Have a great week ahead!

How wonderful!! Here, we still have enormous amounts of snow, at the moment in the shape of thick slush on the streets and several meters high piles on the sides....

Nice to see these cheery blooms. A bit of green here too. xox

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

No blooms here yet so I have greatly enjoyed yours! :)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

They are beautiful flowers, Snao! If I plant them here I'm afraid my deer visitors would eat them like candy...the only thing they seem to not like to eat is lavender. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the Spring like weather!

Pondside said...

I like to treat myself to freesia now and again, for the colour and the perfume. I love both!

Lorrie said...

Beautiful freesias. I don't think I've ever seen a red one - the white and yellow ones are more common around here.

Kelleyn Rothaermel said...

Lovely! I need to go and buy some spring flowers!

I've purchased freesias alone as bouquets from the florist as I love their scent so much. The red you have is stunning, isn't it?

I don't like yellow in my wardrobe but I love it in the garden :-) Happy spring.

My Little Home and Garden said...

I have to agree with you, yellow is a happy colour! I'm still wrapping my head around pots of scented flowers in the first half of March! It looks like there was a touch of frost here last night.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh -- I've seen that yellow flower before and was never sure what it was! Apparently it is one that nobody around me in Oregon grew (back in the day when we gardened and all our neighbors did and did it better than I did)... anyway it is beautiful and I know the scent only from lotions and I am sure the real thing is a hundred times more lovely. Now I want to look for them and sniff!!

I had pale purple ones in my bouquet when I married my David. Love their scent.
Thanks for sharing yours. Oh for smellovision !
