The Last of Spring's Blossoms


Our weather has been crazier than average over the last week especially.  Temperatures in the 80's even coming close to 90 degrees finalized all the blooming trees and some flowers before they were forced to succumb to the heat.  However, I happened to grab my camera before taking a quick walk around the neighborhood before this heat wave occurred.  So I was able to bring the blooming part of spring - minus the allergies - back again.   Not as beautiful as the real thing, but the pictures still speak 1000 words. :)

The whole tree is beautiful, but a single bloom is a work of art.

I really love the color blue in nature and these flowers were brilliant!

These blooms remind me of those tissue flowers we used to make as kids.

Wild violets are one of those things that make you look twice...gorgeous little creatures.

I had to take a picture of the amazing pink buds of this white rhododendron.

The opened flower buds fade into white.
Happy Spring to you all!  Blessings!

  1. Such beautiful blossoms! It's too bad that they don't stick around longer. I think my favorite is the little blue flowers. They are so pretty!

    1. I totally agree! I like the blue flowers too...I'm guessing they may be "forget-me-nots" as there aren't too many blue flowers for the garden. :)

  11. The flowers truly are miracles in their perfection. Words are inadequate in expressing their beauty. You're right about the flowers that look like the tissue paper flowers we used to make !
