We highlighted Oklahoma City Community Foundation’s #RebloomOklahoma initiative in this month’s newsletter and want to share a few more photos of this amazing project with you… Special thanks to @ashleyelkins , Special Projects Coordinator at OCCF for sharing these photos. Please feel free to chat Ashley in this discussion if you’re interested in learning more about #RebloomOklahoma.
#RebloomOklahoma has been a wonderful project this Spring. Our President, Nancy Anthony, had a desire to plant seeds of hope and renewal this Spring after a hard year of Covid-19 by donating over 60,000 daffodil bulbs to our community. We've had a wonderful time working with neighborhood associations, parks, schools, churches and fellow nonprofit organizations to help make this desire a reality. As you drive around Greater Oklahoma City, you see spots of beautiful yellow daffodil bulbs that hopefully bring a smile to our neighbors faces. The Oklahoma City Community Foundation has enjoyed this project and intends to grow it further in the coming years!
oh daffodils! i miss daffodils.... what a BEAUTIFUL thing to do for the city.
here in Central Florida, Spring starts in February and hiccups around with Summer until about now... where we'll be in Summer until November-December.
Florida means the land of flowers, and boy, it sure is! These tiny flowers (none larger than 1/2 diameter) were in my front garden this Spring.
and then these little creatures -- they're moving about now, too.
@HeidiFindlay Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos of Spring flowers... We are still waiting for flowers to start showing up here in Bozeman.
@HeidiFindlay I went for a hike this weekend and found this Spring flower blooming here in Bozeman! Of course, we woke to snow on the ground this morning....
@Kellieutzinger - Little says Spring like crocus blooms!! In Virginia, they start in February and sometimes poked through snow (food for the insects that wake early). I was at my dad's this weekend, outside of Tampa on the Gulf of Mexico, and found these beauties. I immediately thought of this post and snapped a few pictures. The last one is one of the fountains in Winter Park's Central Park. I look forward to more photos!!
@HeidiFindlay These photos are stunning!! Thank you for sharing. They definitely brighten my snowy day here in Bozeman😊
Great Spring pictures! Every year in Bozeman, MT the county closes about 8 miles of road (up to Hyalite reservoir) to cars for the month of April. Lots of people/families bike/walk/run on this road. It is like a get outside tradition. :)
@BenLuchsinger - thank you for sharing! what a wonderful thing to do for residents! Ah... pine trees....
I live in Ohio. We were experiencing nice spring weather, with the temps in the 60s and 70s. We woke up yesterday morning to this.
By the afternoon, the sun was out, and all the snow was gone!! ☀️ 🌤️ This weekend, it's supposed to be in the 60s again, and by mid-week, we'll be in the 80s!! That's Ohio for you! 😀😎
A moody evening in Bozeman Montana (Sunday April 25th, 2021)
I’m just returning to Bozeman from a little getaway to Sedona, Arizona...where spring is a little more “spiky”!

Looks like Bozeman and Grande Prairie, Alberta have similar weather patterns! We had a dump of snow on Wednesday and it's starting to melt again. There's a bit of green grass starting to show through in spots. #lovewhereyoulive
@RhondaReichert Here in Bozeman, the flower pots I pulled out this week are now filled with snow!

Snow is not a problem in Florida. Mind you, nobody moves here for our summers.
I'm truly enjoying all the pictures!
