Florida Florals - a spring collection





Central Florida is blooming! All of these photos were taken yesterday; the bottom three were shot in our yard. The first photo is of a neighbor's flower bed.

They are all just fabulous Jacob! I have azaleas on my blog today and tomorrow, but my amaryllis haven't bloomed yet and I'm still waiting for my dogwoods to get to their peak. I think all this dry weather might have affected them.

Excellent choice for a post, so many great shots of beautiful flowers. If I had to pick one photo, probably I'll pick the second one.

JM said...

Lovely shots! The 3rd one shows what we call here, an 'amarilis'; my grandmother had a huge collection of them.

Hello Jacob! Your spring is beautiful! I'm a bit short of time these days so I can't visit as many blogs as I'd want, but I must add yours every day! Thank you for visiting Arradon DP and taking the time to comment. I wish you a nice day, sunny I think, the sun is always shining in Florida, isn't it ;-)

Bibi said...

Oh, gee, I'm so JEALOUS seeing everyone's flowers!!! Here we're having a late spring (I know it's on the 20th/21st, but usually something is green!) I sure hope spring arrives soon here. Your flowers are gorgeous; can almost smell 'em.

You asked about Dusan's Code, and I found this on Wikipedia:

The code was based partly on common law, partly on old church law, and somewhat on Greek imperial laws, but in its essence it has predominantly autonomous character. It even has some elements of constitutional law, so it could be viewed as a kind of constitution. There are around 200 articles in the Code.

We both posted flowers today! Except that mine are already in a vase...

Jacob said...

Thanks so much to all who visited and commented! Alice ... no, the sun doesn't always shine...right now, for example, it is relatively cool (65 degreees) and foggy...we expect 83 degrees today and perhaps some sunshine.

I'm not complaining...it is nice weather most of the time here in Central Florida and not as humid as South Florida.
