Today's Flowers # 87

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 2 GMT is the post time. I send out a Happy Easter wish to all my visitors.

This are some flowers I saw on my Europe trip they came in red, purple and yellow. Primrose is the flowers name, thanks for the help. 
They used them in a lot of planters.
The red ones were quite showy.
But the purple ones were precious.
You can see a lot of great flowers above.


Coming soon - Arriving at Venice in near perfect lighting.

Hi!!!

At least in Spain those flower of the picture are called "pensamiento" or viola tricolor, in English is pansy or pansy violet, its scientific name is "Viola tricolor hortensis".

Nice blog by the way.

I always look forward to the colourful Primroses displays coming out in local markets. It is one of the first signs of the coming spring. And they come back each year too if you leave them in the garden.
Great photos!! I love the purple ones, my favorite colour!

I have seen those same flowers here Tom but I do not know the name either. They come in a variety of different colrs and are a pretty show in a garden or pot.

These flowers will grow out in the garden and are long lasting perennials. I love the different colors they come in and they certainly brighten up the cooler seasons in the garden.

I am at a loss for flower names, but these are great captures. Beauty found in even small blooms.

Holiday blessings to you and yours.

Lanny said...

oh what great photos. Love primroses, I am going to be brave and start my own from seed in July this year for some winter color. I always buy them full grown, one time I happened to be at the nursery when they were getting rid of all the primroses that had bloomed out. I got four or five flats of them. Unfortunately slugs really like them, so the don't stick around as long as they should.

The ARE pretty. But I'm kinda partial to the purple myself.
