This week the Bradford pear trees are in full bloom and I can hear the bees buzzing! It is so exciting to know that Spring is upon us! So here are a few photos of the Bradford pear blooms in our yard. Enjoy!
In anticipation of the tulips blooming this year, I am sharing a couple of my photos of tulips from last year. These were some beautiful orange/red/yellow tulips that I purchased. I’ve been known to purchase them after Easter to plant in the ground – real deals! Enjoy!
Spring is almost here so it is time to start Bloom of the Week again!! I’m very excited to share with you the first blooms of the season here in north Texas – the daffodils! They are usually the first to bloom each Spring and it is the sign that I always look forward to each year. Enjoy!
It’s Wednesday so it’s Bloom of the Week but it’s also Halloween….so I wanted to take a couple of my flower photos and make them more to the spooky side. Here is what I came up with!
Found this weekend in Broken Bow, OK. A gorgeous rose. They are so hard to capture the beauty but I always try! Enjoy!
Though they are not from this week past I did discover them in my files just yesterday so I am going to say that it counts!
I’m a day slow. But here are two photos of some new flowers to my flowerbed. I call them rose moss but not sure of their real name.
Hope you enjoy!
You can also see the other Bloom of the week Wednesday posts here.
Found these gems in the Austin area. They seem to be very similar to the Indian Blanket wildflower but a different center. Anyone know what they are?
This week I’m sharing one of my roses – quirk is that it is two stages of growth. One is a bud and the other a bloom. It isn’t the same bud/bloom but from the same rose-bush. Hope you enjoy!
There were lots of flowers around my house this weekend. So I had some fun with my camera. One of the flowers that I previously worried about were the lilies. They usually bloom after the daffodils but before the irises and this year they did not. But, alas, they did not let me down and were blooming this weekend!
Found these in the Columbia River Gorge falls area. They aren’t as in focus as I like but they are pretty, nonetheless.
This first one is wicked looking to me – such structure and color! I was quite wowed by it!
I know not what this flower is. I found it hiking in the Columbia River Gorge waterfall area – near Multnomah falls. But the drops and the pink drew me to it.
The first gardenia of the spring!
I’m a bit behind in photo taking as I worked the weekend away… so here is a rose that captured my eye Easter weekend at Honor Heights Park in Muskogee, OK.
I kind of jumped the gun on my favorite photo of a bloom this week with the post A Ladybug’s Daisy. But alas, with our trip to Honor Heights Park in Muskogee, OK I found plenty of photos to share. This park is truly a gem in the vastness of OK. If you are passing thru please take an hour to visit – totally worth it!!
