My red roses started blooming this week.
This variety of roses blooms early in the season but doesn't last very long into the summer most years.
My hydrangea bushes are beginning to form buds.
This variety of irises are always the first ones to bloom in my yard.
My camellias were drowned in recent pouring rain storms.
Most ended up on the ground.
A few are still hanging on.
I took the rest of the shots at work in the parking lot.
Flowers have a way of brightening up a city.
My mother loved yellow roses and they always make me think of her.
I used to have similar roses to both the yellow and pink ones but I lost mine a year or two ago. Besides the red ones which I posted I also have a peach variety that should bloom later in the season. Nice to see the yellow and pink ones at the office parking lot since I don't have them anymore.
