Today's Flowers and Weekend Flowers: Blooms Abound

The first two shots were taken at a shopping center.
The iceplant above and rudbeckia below are ahead of mine.
The rest of the shots were taken in my yard.
Coriopsis (above) continues to brighten up my yard.
My hydrangea bushes are getting more and more color in their blooms.
The hydrangea above is in my backyard and is a "baby" I transplanted years ago from the mother in my side yard.
Most of my evening primrose (above) have finished blooming as they have early spring flowers.
The hydrangea above is the parent bush I got the "baby" bush from but the baby has grown to be almost as large as the parent.
I like all the stages of the hydrangea blooms and how they add and change colors.
My iceplants are beginning to catch up with the shopping center ones.
They only have a few blooms so far, but I'm sure they'll be bursting in blooms soon now that they've started to have flowers.

Awesome photos...I love the iceplant, I've never seen that's a succulent, right? I don't think it would grow here in our cabin, but maybe at our river place...

Great photos Carver, a lovely variety of flowers and colors. I remember trying to grow iceplant on the hillside of our old home in California. It was quite a challenge and took us a long time to figure it out, I think due to our own inexperience. It was just taking off when we had to leave and I sometimes wonder about it to this day. Thank you for being such a great supporter of Today's Flowers and I wish you a great weeka head.
