Today's Flowers # 42

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 4 GMT is the post time.

Sometimes you get an opportunity to go to a garden with beautiful flowers to capture. This was the case om Memorial Day when we visited my Son-in-law's Mother's house.
It had beautiful flowers and I was able to shoot to my hearts content. I don't know the name of all the flowers but will note the ones I am sure. The first one was from a basket of yellow pansies.
I'm not sure this ones name but really like the little blooms.
This was e neat flower in pink and yellow.
The Violets were outstanding with lots of blooms.
This was a variation on the one above.
This is a white and yellow petunia.
This was a neat little bloom.
This was a red and yellow petunia.
There were several beautiful Red Rose bushes.
I do hope you enjoyed your trip through the blooms and want to see what others have shown.

You really do have some nice flower photos. None of our flowers are out yet. It was cold here this morning too.

You probably don't remember when people lived and died at home and endured wakes. I wrote about it here. http://bing-it.blogspot.com/

Great captures Tom, the one between the Petunias is a blue Pelargonium and the violet has the colour but is anything but a Violet! :) So nice to have a beautiful garden in the 'family' that one can snap in.
