Spring is here...but it's still cold.

I'm still waiting for spring to be really here. It's still darn cold out. This flower lady looks like she'd like to go home, but she's still got quite a few narcissus and daffodils to sell. Brrr.

Bless her heart - she does look cold. Interesting - the same flowers are in bloom here.

This is a wonderful portrait. I wish I could give her a cup of hot cocoa.
I feel the same way about Spring. Tomorrow morning it will feel like the teens here with our windchill!
Bibi, I invite you to enter my giveaway over at my blog in celebration of one year of posting, if you'd like.

Wish I could buy some of her flowers - the narcissus must smell so good. Another excellent capture, 'Bibi'.

Sally said...

I bet she is hoping they will sell soon!

Marie Reed said...

Holy Moly this is just breathtaking! It's still freezing here too! It makes me a little grumpy!

where do the daffodils come from? are the blooming there in the cold? my heart goes out to all people who have to work outdoors in the winter the world over.

The poor dear needs mittens, but her flowers make me hungry for spring.

Suzy just picked up a bunch of these at PPMarket this morning. I wonder how much this gals are going for. Our crocus have just about petered out, the daffodils and narcissus are out, and the grape hyacinths are poking up purple everywhere in the yard. Soon the tulips and the irises. Ah, spring. She has it all ready to go for us. I wish I could smell those through the screen. Keep warm!

I like this shot, simple, but telling!

Jilly said...

She does look cold. I love the shot tho.

Bibi, many thanks for comment this morning on Menton. I reversed the photos. Many thanks. I did post the cropped version earlier but knew the mimosa wasn't in focus but I agree with you, it's better this way.


I thought your gentleman yesterday looked a bit like one I posted on Monte Carlo a day or so ago!

Une seule envie: en acheter,

marley said...

She looks freezing! Hope you bought a bunch to speed up her return indoors.

this is a touching portrait. it looks cold and makes me wonder how fresh cut flowers handle the cold

Debby said...

Something else strikes me about your picture. The woman would be as out of place in a discotech as the flowers are in the cold.

Becky said...

The narcissus flowers are beautiful! I'll take them all! We're still waiting for the flowers to bloom enough to sell them fresh here...though I did see my first daffodils this morning! Bright yellow contrasting with the grey of the morning.

The flowers are so gorgeous. But yes, the poor woman looked like she's freezing.
