Spring



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).

We had sunny spring days for few weeks and now it's been snowing again this week! Noooooo! :P

These look beautiful and a little bit like viburnum - it's great to see nature start to wake up isn't it? We're getting longer days here but there's still a way to go on the weather - looking forward to pictures of your flame plants. #lifethruthelens

Our area is starting to bud as well...but the only things blooming in my garden are the daffodils. It certainly looks like spring has arrived with fanfare where you live!

we call these butterfly plants, I don't know their real name either, but butterflies like them. So pretty.

Looks very similar to lantana. I hope you get good shots of those flame flowers. I am really looking forward to seeing those. Of course I like these-we both thought pink this week :)
