Waiting for Spring

I’m getting excited about Spring! My little shrubs in the front of the house have bloomed with their pretty pink flowers. I think they’re some sort of Japanese Cherry bush. I put some hyacinths in the ground last year and I thought they were goners, but they popped up a few weeks ago! The white one had flowers on it when we had the big freeze & ice. It took a toll on it and put a kibosh on the growth. It’s still green but the flowers aren’t looking too good. It’s a bummer. They smell SO good!

At the end of March last year, I took my camera to our local nursery and got uh.. over 150 photos of the flowers there. It’s the first time I’d done that and I’m really excited to go do it again! I know 150+ photos seems like a lot. But there was sooo much beauty that I couldn’t NOT take the photos. I’ve already shared some of the flowers with you in other posts. I’ll share some more now.

You see about a third of the candidates here. These are just the roses. I think they should put a bench in this greenhouse just so folks can sit for a spell & soak up the magnificence of these flowers.

The variety of colors and combinations of colors was a feast for the eyes.

This beautiful bud looks so delicate.

Some of the roses had fragrance so the greenhouse had a tinge of that lovely rose smell.

I love that they come in a lavender color!

This one actually is two-toned, as it appears.

A beautiful, soft pink  with white.

There’s nothing wrong with all white either!

And we can’t forget about the phenomenal Peace rose!

I really enjoy taking photos of flowers. It’s really pleasing to know that I’ve been able to capture them in their glory and will be able to keep them that way even when they’ve long gone. I’m also happy to share them so that other people can enjoy their beauty too.

Captivating
