Today's Flowers # 35

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 7 GMT is the post time.

The crocus is still the most prolific flower in our Northern climate. The beds are coming alive with color. You can click to get a better look.
They grow almost anywhere even around the base of a tree. You can see the tulips and daffodils starting to show their leaves.
I'm happy to feature my daughters brown orchid. This is a prolific bloomer with multiple flowers. The second stem is getting ready to blossom.
You can see how many blooms are showing their stuff.
It is certainly an unusual color and so pretty up close.
You can see beautiful flowers at the site above.

The crocuses in our area have already come and gone. Daffodils on every block now. Looking forward to the tulip season.

I've never seen a brown orchid, either.

Such lovely drifts of Cocus with Tulips promising later colour.
Tom, your daughter's Orchid is flowering so well. With our recent shocking summer I only have one bud.

Beautiful shots!

Tarolino said...

Well crocuses are such little stars bursting out with splashes of colour in an otherwise quite dreary spring landscape.
That orchid is simply amazing. The close up really shows the strange beauty of those blooms.

Crocus is famous and expensive here.This plant is grown in a certain area in Greece and is used in cookery.

Titania said...

Crocus are a big hit at the moment with all the cold climate gardens getting ready for spring. But they are so pretty it is a pleasure. This is certaily an unusual colour of the orchid. It makes it very special.

George said...

Your crocus are spreading quite nicely -- what a beautiful way to welcome Spring. Your daughter's orchid is absolutely gorgeous.

Judy said...

I love the crocuses - I think yours are further along than mine! Not hard, I know. I love the way you have clusters of them, and can stand away to take the photos! I just replanted all my bulbs after digging over the garden, so have only singles.
I love the mallards and teal in the next post, too!

susieofarabia said...

I never knew there were brown orchids! It is so unusual. I would love to photos of the crocuses and tulips and daffodils when they are in full bloom. I love bulb plants. (My favorites are irises and daffodils!)

The crocuses are so welcome this time of year. The brown orchid is stunning!

Tina said...
