Today's Flowers # 91 - Special Flowers

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.

It is time to show the flower photos and to start I have this tulip from my yard. It is a real beauty.
I took a walk along the Cuyahoga River and found this wild flowering bush. The white blooms with the pink was so neat.
The Honeysuckle was in bloom and putting on quite the show of small blooms. I just learned the name last year.
The final are the blooms of the Pine Tree as it gets ready to make the pine cones.
You can see a lot of neat flowers at the above site.

Your tulip is a lovely color.
The chokecherry blossoms are so pretty. Did you smell them for they are as fragrant as the honeysuckle.
Nature sure is a gift from God that He has spread in every direction. Do enjoy.
