Flowers are blooming, shrubs are alive with fragrance and color, and spring is in full swing. Last Wednesday, I posted landscape shots of the front yard, and today I offer details of some of those lovely bloomers.
Rhododendron thrive in the Pacific Northwest. Their broad evergreen leaves provide an understory cover for birds, and their brilliant blossoms, while short-lived, are a vibrant addition to spring gardens.
This particular Lilac is so fragrant folks walk across the street to breathe in it’s essence.
I was pleasantly surprised to find this pot of Sweet Alyssum and Chrysanthemum wintered over and is quite exuberant in it’s place on the entryway to our home.
Self-seeding and a sun-lover, Columbine is a welcome wildflower.
A transplant from my sister’s garden, Calla Lily is a graceful, sensuous addition to my spring gardens. Thanks to Patti for this challenge. With an overcast sky, and no wind, I was able to use the macro feature on my camera to take these photos today. What a treat!
Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate onward. Please mask-up and stay safe.🐾
WOW. Bloomin’ lovely! The Rhodo and Columbine are stunning!
Great images, Lindy, but that last shot is a stunner!! Wow. I love it. Great details!
Thank you Patti. Calla Lily can get chewed on, but this one was perfecto!
Lovely choices Lindy – and yes, spring has sprung bringing us the most glorious treats! My favorite of these is the simple lilac – you’ve captured it perfectly. I can almost smell it from here.
Thank you, Tina! Such a humble bloom with a big charming fragrance.
Ah, perfect details of spring, Lindy!
Beautiful flower details, Lindy. The Calla Lily is my favorite!
Lovely flowers. The rhododendron is especially beautiful!
Thank you! I’ll be getting a post in for this week’s challenge soon 🙂
