Spring beauties

My wander in the Botanic Gardens yielded many spring treasures. 
The simple beauty of magnolias ...
... led to some stunning dogwoods in flower - pink ones ...
... and pure white ones.
And then came 
the showy, voluptuous rhododendrons ...
... such show-offs!
In contrast, the simplicity of tiny geraniums ...
 ... and the cheerfulness of common daisies ...
A stunning clematis rambled casually along a fence top ...
... and tall, graceful columbines nodded in the breeze ...
And here come the roses ...
... the first of many for the season.
A lovely, lovely walk in the warm Spring sunshine.

  4. Beautiful photos.
    I used to have a pink Dogwood but my husband decided to move it, against my wishes and it didn't survive. They are not that common over here and I still haven't found a replacement.

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  5. I love it so much reading in your blog, bloom. And this morning I enjoy watching your wonderful spring photos. I just imagine you walking in the warm sunshine while here in Germany the weather is windy and rainy. Typical for autumn!
    Thank you for your wonderful blog and your photos.
