One of my favorite things is spring - and spring flowers. Yesterday we had lovely weather - sunny - almost 60 degrees and bright blue skies. When Don got home from work we took off on one of our rides in the country and I found wonderful spring flowers.
Fields of Dandelions - oh how I love Dandelions. We get the word Dandelion from the French dent-de-lion, meaning Tooth of the Lion.
This is a particularly good year for Dandelions and the fields are covered in their bright shiny yellow faces
Our yard is cooler because of the shade and we don't have the luxury of so many Dandelions like this. I saw one little one last night when we drove in - hopefully there will be more soon.
Flowering Quince is blooming everywhere.
The sun was lighting this bush from behind and made the blossoms glow
Such pretty flowers
And Oregon Grape - an unassuming looking plant, with small, dusty purple berries in clusters in the summer, but the spring is its time to shine.
Full of glorious little daffodil shaped flowers
Oh the color - such a pretty plant in the spring.
The flowers are less than an inch across - but so pretty. I love spring flowers
