It has been so enjoyable watching this tulip go from a closed bulb with promise of pops of color, to sunshine bursting forth from its center, and finally in full bloom.

Sunshine Bursting Forth

Yesterday’s flower of the day that was a pop of color is today’s winter delight!  The tulip opened up this morning and I couldn’t help playing with light until it looked like sunshine bursting forth through the tulip petals.

Flowery Lemon Pie

A pretty tropical flower that reminds me of a flowery lemon pie.  Lemon pie is also easier for this forgetful mind to remember than the flower’s actual name, plumeria frangipangi.

Bright sunflowers make it look and feel like summer here and now.  Yes, it is September but sunflowers are still in bloom at Taltree Arboretum and Gardens.   Enjoy the beauty and sunshine for as long as possible.

One Thing I Know

The one thing I know about this flower is the color – peach. The rest is a guessing game for me. I thought at first that it could be a type of lily. Now, I am guessing an amaryllis.  Do you know?

One more thing about this pretty blossom is that it is the flower of the day.

Splash of Red

A splash of red makes me smile and think of fun.  Whether it is a sporty red car dashing past, the feel of red silk billowing in the wind, or a bright red hibiscus showing off its colors in the sunshine.

Fiery Orange

I am very much a morning person and enjoy watching sunrises while out hiking.  Sunsets, on the other hand, happen without me most of the time.  I am ready to curl up with a good book by that time of the day.  This is my version of a sun setting in flower form – a fiery orange zinnia.
