I took this picture of these lillies after a rain storm.
Early blooming Castilleja mendocinensis.
One of the newer varieties...beautiful in lavender! Taken outside the IHOP...
A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world. ~Leo Buscaglia
Beautiful little crocuses herald the news that spring is arriving.
pretty pink gerber in my garden.
Indian Red Paintbrushes (VikkiY
Usually one of the first flowers of Spring around the Southeast Texas...the bluebonnets won't be far behind!
AKA Douglas' Iris, at Russian Gulch State Park.
The first of the year....that I have seen anyway :)
Apricot tree in full blossom
I visited one of my favorite nurseries in Newport Beach. The flower's were delightful.
This magnolia tree (star magnolia? I'm not sure what kind it is) is about to explode into several glorious days of bloom. Right now, though, it's only showing scattered blossoms.
Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius) (Tsurai
Beuatiful -- but an invasive, introduced species that crowds out native plants. It's particularly good at colonizing highway roadsides and clear-cuts in logging areas.
These delicate blooms appear before the leaves. This small tree is outside our dining room window, and is spare enough to see beyond to the rest of the yard.
From our garden in Winter Haven, Florida.
Phalaenopsis-is a genus of approximately 60 species of orchids
Just another happy bunch of 'uncrabby' blossoms.
The first colors in my front yard.
Scarlet pimpernel (Anagallis arvensis) is a common roadside wildflower. It normally has a beautiful salmon-orange color, but blue and white forms have been reported also. This is the first time I've seen the blue form in the Houston area. (I was pretty excited to find them, but I am a wildflower nut!) These are low-growing plants that are covered with tiny, 1/4" blooms. I found these "blue pimpernels" at Ellington Field, and also saw some patches along Highway 3 near there. This is a shot of the blue and salmon forms growing side-by-side.
The lovely little spring buttercups are popping up.
Tulips at the Dallas Arboretum (ProfJosh
Pink azalias at Hermann Park in Houston
Amaryllis fresh bloom today!
These are in bloom in our yard now. So pretty.
The beauty of spring is beginning to sprout up around town.
These are not bluebonnets I don't know what they are (deshutterbug
My husband said they are bluebonnets, but, a fellow photographer said they are not. They are just some kind of wildflower that my neighbor planted in their vacant lot. I guess I will ask them what they are.
Thank you MOJOFLOWERCHICK for the ID!
The tree in my front yard. The flowers are plentiful and have nice color this year.
It is raining here in SE Texas. We had something like 5 inches in 24 hours. I went out in the yard and took a few pictures during a lull in the rain.
