I love colour and so I love flowers as they add the pop that my eyes enjoy. Here are some blossoms that I’ve had the pleasure of viewing and photographing this spring.
Crocus is difficult to capture as it is almost always windy on the prairie. I did manage to get this one earlier this year while on a hike in the Dirt Hills.
A few weeks ago, there was a risk of frost, so I cut these and brought them in to enjoy.
With little rain this spring, my lilac blooms were few and far between. I cut a few to bring inside and their aroma spread all through the house.
The honeysuckles are also a feast for the senses.
My giant allium is having trouble. It hasn’t bloomed for a couple of years. I don’t think it gets enough water right beside the house. I either have to move it or risk foundation problems. Hmmm…
I saw this plant about 2 feet tall right beside Oro Lake while on a road trip with Linda. The Plantsnap app was no help, so I have no idea what it is. If you know, please let me know.
The day before yesterday, my poppies began to open, albeit during some very windy weather 70-90 km/hr. The early ones were ravaged by wind, but yesterday it showered and was calm for a couple of hours. The petals are so delicate you can see the raindrops right through them.
Today a gale is blowing again, so glad I have a few shots.
Soon, they say.
