It seems that spring is finally here. It looks like the warmer weather is here to stay. The flame flowers are finally out! Every year, the flame flowers are my sure signs that spring has arrived. I have yet to get a good picture of the flame flowers, but hopefully this year will be the year. I always see them from a moving vehicle and have never had a chance to get close to them enough to get a good shot. The flowers are a special flame red and they really stand out from the light green leaves on the trees. Until such time I am able to shoot some photos of the flame flowers, I give you these instead… (sorry, but I don’t know what they’re called, though).
