Spring Photos

Everyone loves Spring for the obvious reasons, it’s when the trees and flowers come to life again with beautiful light green foliage and blooms. I took advantage of a beautiful day and practiced taking pictures with my camera other than food. This picture is right outside my front door, yep we live in the country.

The beautiful Iris flowers are a funny story. I have found the best way to grow these beauties is to rip them up out of my planters and throw them down the hill, where they land is where they grow. They are a bit rebellious and like freedom from uniformity. Some people are a lot like these Iris’s they would rather die if confined but thrive when set free.

My beautiful Yellow Oklahoma Rose bush isn’t fussy at all and loves it’s home in front of one of my office windows, which by the way I was scolded for planting in front of my window by a Β landscaper who was doing some work on our yard. He said you never plant in front of a window,” well, no one told my yellow rose bush that” because it says “thank you” by blooming profusely until frost and fills lots of vases full for me and others.

This little sweetie is our dog Angel, she is spoiled but look at her, how could you NOT spoil her :).

I have two climbing red rose bushes with black tip in the petals, I love these roses but wish they had long stems to put in tall vases, oh well, at least I have them.

More purple bearded Iris’s growing wild that I tossed down the hill from my house, these beautiful flowers only bloom once a year and for a very short time I was so glad to catch these flowers looking so pretty because they were gone a few days later.

Love all the pretty flowers, I dont know why but I always like to take pics of flowers and trees too. Not to be a grammar snob because I totally think its cute that you spelled flowers like the cooking flours! I guess you kept you’re chef hat on today and didnt even realize it πŸ™‚

Yep, I didn’t notice it Darc, thanks for telling me. I write too many recipe with flour in them.

Beautiful images, Suzanne. My backyard is starting to come alive and I couldn’t resist taking pictures either. πŸ™‚

Thanks Jean, I am a lover of flowers so it’s hard not to take photos of them.

Suzanne, you live in very beautiful place. I live next to a beautiful canyon but there are lots of wild animals (such as deer and coyote, and mountain lion!) and we can’t even plant flowers because they eat them!! I’m so jealous you have beautiful roses! It’s nice to take non-food pictures once in a while, although I get frustrated taking pictures of kids who move all the time. Photographing food all the sudden becomes easier in a way. πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing! p.s. your doggie Angel is so cute!

Thanks Nami, we do love it here. I know about all the critters eating your garden flowers. We have a ton of animals that tear up things (namely armadillo’s) and possums who eat all your peaches off the tree right before you go pick them. The deer only come up to eat the wild persimmons that fall on the ground in the Fall.

I wish I had the green thumb with flowers! Yours look gorgeous. It is always fun practicing with things other than food!
