Today's Flowers # 89


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.

From a walk around the neighborhood I found this Forsythia plant.
They have a great flower when you look close-up.

Check out this patch of wild purple Violets in the park.

They have a very delicate bloom which hides their face.

You can see a lot of great flowers above.

You are correct. The forsythia plant does have a great flower. I've always admired a forsythia from a distance. Thank you for showing me what the flower looks like close up! I like the yellow frame around the forsythia too.

That is one beautiful forsynthia tree! Ours are all bloomed now, just leaves now. I hacked back my forsynthia tree this year, it was so unruly and blocking big time my driveway, still waiting to see if it recovers from the shock. I think it will. Your little purple violets are cute. I love that colour!

No way :-) the first picture of the forsynthia tree is so out of this world. I don't see much of them in my area.

Forsythia and violets go nicely together. I have both in my backyard. Love your shot of the one forsythia bloom.

My four forsythia bushes have bloomed and turned green. I guess you are a little behind us.
Lovely capture of the violet!
I've seen a lot more of them this year.

I love forsythia...almost every yard in our area has one. Mine is going wild, I trimmed it 2 yrs ago but the stems root as soon as it touches the ground.

What a vivid yellow! The violets seem a bit shy don't they...

Denise said...

Lovely photos of the forsythia and the violets. I haven't seen violets around here for a while.

George said...

It's good to see that Spring is busting out all over up there in Ohio. You captured a very pretty forsythia.

chubskulit said...

We have a lot of those purple flowers in our yard but I am wondering if those ware weeds or wild flowers coz they're kinda pretty..

Hope you can still visit my African Violet entry, even I am a little late, thanks in advance.

Great flower shots, Tom. Forsythia is one of my favorites as we know that spring is truly here when we see it.

I didn't know what the name of that was. Great macros!

Rose said...

I would not have thought to surround the forsythia with a yellow frame, but that sure does work for me. Very nice shots.

Hilary said...

Yellow and purple.. the colours of spring. Beautiful!

Gaelyn said...

You have showed two of my favorite spring flowers.
