Flower Fun

Ok,I admit, I am getting tired of seeing snow and so have dipped into the archives for some colour.
I picked some colourful blooms and then used a program called Image Framer. I should say this is a Mac App and of course I just have the free one,so am a little limited with frame choices.


Let's start with one of my favourite colours,pink.
This is a unique lily,which has a spotted look,yet has a beauty all it's own.


I cannot do a special flower post and not share at least one Daisy. This simple flower is easy to grow,therefore I like it,but it is still beautiful from various angles.

The flower which is easiest to grow is the Dandelion. Ok,I know it's a weed,but those first few that pop up in spring are still beautiful. 

Periwinkle is another easy to grow flower and an early one to bloom


One more lily. I have lots of lilies in my gardens,thanks to Jake's love of this flower. I enjoy them more now than ever.I guess,truth be told,I like all flowers.

I hope you have enjoyed my flowers. I know I enjoyed looking at some bright colours.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend.

  1. stunning yellow lily! the rest of the flowers are lovely too. I turned to scrapbooking (consequently, photography) after my husband died in 2006. I wish you the best in this chapter of your life.

  3. Ruth, It's good to see some beautiful, colorful flowers for a change! This has been a long drab winter. At least my jonquils are blooming :)

  5. Such a cheery post for a dreary end-of-winter-but-not-quite-spring day. That first one looks like an oil painting to me.

  6. Hi, I have that image framer --but haven't played with it yet... Your frames are GREAT.... It's probably like other apps... They want us to like the free one --and then hope we'll buy a better one... ha ha

    My fav. is your Periwinkle --and that frame (which is perfect)... Can't wait til our Periwinkle blooms.

    We had a gorgeous spring day here--and I even opened the windows and doors in the house. Felt wonderful.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  9. The combination of the daisy and the frame is my favorite. We have lots of periwinkles around here, and now I now their name!!! So I can post them in the spring, which is only 3 days away. I think dandelions are wildflowers, People call the wildflowers they don't like weeds.

  10. Lovely touch of spring color! Good choices on all the frames, but I like the dandelion best. When you look closely at a dandelion it's really quite a nice bloom, and you can't help but admire its tenacity--all the while you are grousing about its tenacity.
