Pink Tulip

This was another shot I got from the Smith Gilbert Gardens.  I was walking around and ran across this small bed of tulips that were beginning to bloom.  I thought having all the other tulips in the background made for a good photo.

I seem to have put my life on hold for the last two weeks and it only looks to be getting busier.  However, I was able to get by the Smith Gilbert Gardens again a couple weekends ago.  This time, the roses were beginning to bloom and some of the other flowers.  I have no idea what this flower was as it had no marker.  It was beautiful though.

Bluebells

Unfortunately, most of the flowers had not started blooming at the Smith Gilbert Gardens while we were there.  I noticed this little bluebell along one of the trails and it was lit just right by the sun.  I wish I could find a field of these in the Southeast, but I am still looking.

Field of Flowers

With all the snow we have had lately, today and yesterday were quite a change.  70 degree weather just a week after several inches of snow and ice.  Only in Georgia can you find that.  In honor of the warm days, I went back through some older stuff and found this field of yellow flowers.

Flowers are some of the best subjects for photos.  I found this one in the yard.  I don’t know what kind of flower it is, but it is yellow.  With the good contrasts, I thought it would make for a good black and white.

For the past three years, I have tried my hand at gardening.  Some people would call it a small farm since it is a half acre.  One of the tricks that I have heard from some of the other gardeners is that you can plant garlic around the garden to keep deer out.  It did not work for me.  I resorted to a couple farm dogs in the area fenced for the garden.  However, it is pretty neat to see the garlic sprout, grow this long stalk and ball like flower on top.  I just happened to catch this one with a visitor.

If you click on the photo, you can see the additional visitors along the base of the individual little flowers.  They are the little black dots.

This is another of the flowers on the property.  I had no idea what type of flower it is.  That is, until Google.  I guess this is the most known flower with pink petals and an orange center.  Regardless of the name, it is still a beautiful flower.

The Clematis

The previous owners of the property where I live enjoyed planting flowers, but not of the annual variety.  So, every spring, I get to see many flowers blooming.  The way they planted the flowers, there are blooms of different kinds, one after the other.  This is a clematis.  It is neat to watch it grow every year from under the ground, flower and then die off in the winter.

May Flowers

Today’s Photo: May Flowers

April showers truly do bring May flowers.  I took this on May 5.  Just a few days ago, this field did not hold a single flower.  In the span of a few days, and several inches of rain, these sprouted.  Now it is time to go search for some more.
