My Spring Flowers

Rate: 15 Flag


Spring came early this year for just about everyone, and Middle Tennessee was no exception. My daffodils were blooming in mid-February, and they are already completely done. But other things have sprung up to take their place, like some new tulips I planted. I have to take pictures of them quickly, because I have a deer problem and the tulip blooms disappear overnight, bitten off cleanly. For some reason, they didn't eat the yellow ones, though.

Frank,Sorry,but are you a ρrofessional;Your work is execellent.Thank you for sharing such a beauty.I am a winter ρerson myself but such a beauty.I am keeρing this.Thank you for your work.Best regards.
I am trying to garden in the desert and that is a challenge. A couple of years ago I planted two lilac sticks with tentative roots that have grown slowly into little bushes. One is larger than the other but the larger one has buds for the first time this year. The bushes are only knee high and not as pretty as yours but I can't for the blooms.
Wonderful chance to feel the colors of spring here. Thanks for sharing yours.
These are gorgeous! I just posted some flowers late last night.....tulips. The only difference is that I didn't grow mine. They were given to me as a gift. The other difference between our photographs is our perspective. Yours are from afar, mine are close up.
Pretty flowers. Those blue ones are really interesting with the two "antenna" sticking up from the middle.
By the way, your composition skill is fantastic!
I think I found your blue flower, if you're interested. Pretty cute name- creeping speedwell. Are these it?



I love Google.
Great photos! Color is coming back to the world. Finally.
Gorgeous. Your pictures are so real my allergies are acting up. Or it might be the lobelia I planted yesterday.

What beautiful flowers! Your photographs are lovely.
I love, love, love flowers! So beautiful! R
