Sunday Stills: Flowers and Plants

Sunday, May 3, 2009

This week's challenge for Sunday Stills was flowers and plants. Stop by to see what everyone else has done!

This is one of my favorites - taken in our front yard. Too bad these flower don't last very long!

I came across this tree while walking the dog last week. I love the buds just starting to break.

And then there's the tulips I threw in for good measure :)

Dogwood flowers may not last long but they sure are pretty!

The dogwoods are pretty, ours in KY where so damaged by the ice storm we have very few that bloomed. I miss seeing the clouds of white in the woods.

Love the dogwood (like everyone else) but also really like seeing leaves and blooms still in bud.

I think flowering shrubs like dogwood and lilacs are some of my favorites even though they don't last all that long.

So much is barely blooming this time of year around Nevada. I was considering a picture of buds on a tree too. Good job.

I don't believe I've ever seen a pink dogwood! That is cool. You're right they are so short lived. I have one white on in my yard.
Pretty tulips.
Have a happy week!

Can't go wrong with tulips, you have some very nice colors too. Our dogwood has bloomed and greened over already. Great job.
