Today's Flowers #38

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.

Today I'm showing my patriotic Hyacinths from the front flower bed. The red ones.
The white ones.
The blue ones, the colors of our flag. Another photo rotation, I don't know why.
My youngest daughter had another orchid bloom this week, it is a white and rose beauty.
Don't you think she does a good job in neglecting these orchids.
There are a lot of neat flowers blooming in the world.

Beautiful close ups FG! Why do flowers always make us feel better about our day?
I guess the way nature blends those colors and makes them pop has something to do with it! Hope you are enjoying some nice sunshine and getting outside!!

Beautiful Tom... I love both Hyacinths and Orchids. Our Hyacinths are gone now---so I really am enjoying yours in all of those colors. WOW!!!

I've never tried to grow Orchids---but one of my childhood friends had them at her home. Her mother grew them... They smell SO good.

Hope you are having a great Sunday.
Hugs,
Betsy

You're right, there are lots of beautiful flowers around the world. And you showed us a few of them! Great photos of the hyacinth. And orchids are just so lovely. Your daughter has a way with them, that's for sure.
