spring has sprung

Around the country, the weather has been very unusual for spring.  One day it’s warm and the sun is shining.  The next day it’s snowing!

South Florida has had some very nice weather as of late.  (Sorry North East & Denver!)  This has lead to some really gorgeous flowers in the past 3-4 weeks.  I finally had the time (and gumption) to get out and snap some photos of these vibrant plants.  (And believe me, the bougainvillea IS on point.)

So, whether you’re looking out the window at white stuff, sun and green grass, or brilliant blossoms like me….enjoy the color below.  Spring is here!!!

Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea glabra)  Let me tell you folks….when these bushes are in full bloom, they are STUNning.  The color pops are out of this world, and everywhere you drive, you will see these intensely colored blossoms.

This set of plants have been around for a loong time…as you can see with the size and quantity of blossoms.  When you walk under the pergola these are growing around, you feel like you’re in a fairy tale!

These little yellow lovelies were a cheery spot in the midst of a green spray.

Dombeya – Tropical Hydrangea.  These trees have beautiful pink clusters of flowers…and are great pops of color to the area.

The smell of the blossoms of this Plumeria tree are AM-azing.

Even the aloe plant outside my front door got into the action.

And last but not least….the most exciting one of all…Of course I saved the best for last 😉

My orchid is budding!  In a short time, I’ll be having beautiful orchid blossoms on my porch!  Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted when they finally open up!
