These are beautiful, i guess i need to take my camera to the flower shop as we don't have flowers now either so just digging in the files for mine

I love your flowers Maria. Right now I have a dozen multi-colored roses, courtesy of my hubby. I love irises. Beautiful photographs again.

These are wonderful! Beautiful colors! I agree in what you say; I miss the flowers outdoors - and can't wait for the time when i can pick them from the fields and in the woods!

Hi Maria :)

When I read the heading of your post I was wondering how is it possible for winter to be over so fast unless there was some magic or sudden change of climate in Vienna.

Climate change is a big burning topic at present all over the world. I won't be surprised if the climates get all mixed up and perhaps your post is a warning that we, humans, should do everything possible to prevent climate change.

Those beautiful flowers you have posted must be coming from countries where there is favorable climate and I won't be surprised Viennese have to pay a higher price. Yet I suppose it is worth paying the price for those stunning gorgeous flowers which are a beauty to behold.

Many thanks for the lovely photos which makes my heart jump with joy:)

Your Astromedia flower pictures are very beautiful.
Spring is around the corner. We have snowdrops in the garden peeking through the snow:)
Herzlichen Gruss,

All your images are beautiful but I find the second one and that purple just stunning!

Soon spring will be here and my flowers will again bloom. It's always nice to have some of our own.

Lilies are often good representations of spring, and these are particularly nice. Beautiful shots, Maria.

Kessi said...

Maria.... :), manchmal denke ich, Du kannst Deine eigenen Fotos niemals mit besseren Fotos übertreffen und von Post zu Post bin ich immer wieder überrascht, wie wundervoll und wie toll Du uns verzauberst und Du uns heute den Frühling wieder ein Stückchen näher bringst. Unglaublich. Einmalige wunderschöne Fotos! Bin absolut begeistert!! :)) Alles Liebe von Herzen, Deine Kessi

Wonderful photos!!I love the ruffled petals, and the pollen grains, and the hints of purple around the pink flowers, and the way you can see the veins in the petals!!
Also your header, the way the hills roll so gently!
Thanks for sharing!

Gorgeous and lots of colour - lovely close-up shots of beautiful flowers.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Astroelmaria (I think that's how it's spelled) are wonderful because they last and last and last. Nice photo, Maria!

Arija said...

At least you have flower shops to keep your spirits up till spring springs again. Lovely photos Maria.

Thank you for caring and your kind wishes in my recent stumble. Things are slowly looking up.

Ferreira-Pinto said...

Amazing colours.
And Spring starts to knock at our door!

Reader Wil said...

Beautiful set of lilies! We are all looking forward to the end of winter!! Have a great week.

fishing guy said...

Maria: What lovely colors on the flowers you shared,

nonizamboni said...

I so agree with you about being done with winter! These are gorgeous up close, Georgia O'Keefe type photos--thanks for sharing the beauty, even if it comes from a shop.

Viooltje said...

I couldn't agree more. I couldn't possibly live without my garden and being constantly glued to the window, watch the snow and ice take over, I can only turn to housework LOL. And weekly visits to nurseries and garden centers are lethal! We've had a snow storm too again yesterday, but only for a while. It's too damn cold, hurry up spring!
