Spring Flowers

Spring-FlowersI love spring, especially after a severe winter like we experienced this year. With spring, however, comes many visits to local nurseries accompanying my wife as she searches and purchases plants for around our home. I appreciate her efforts, but going to nurseries is akin to going shopping, which I do not enjoy (like most men). There is a positive side to these outings, because I do enjoy walking around the nurseries and seeing all of the lush green plants and in particular those in bloom.

To make the trips to nurseries less like shopping, I typically bring a camera, and while my wife is looking around at plants, I am not too far behind taking photographs of those that catch my eye. Included in this article are a few of the images from our most recent trip to a local nursery.

Purple-and-Pink-Fuchsia-3The above images are of Purple and Pink Fuchsia flowers. Their very unusual flowers attracted me and my camera.

Above are two unidentified beauties. I need to start photographing the names of the flowers that are attached to the pots. To see more of my flower photography go to: http://stabone.com/p578613902#h6650e15

    Really Spectular Stephen, I’ve never had the opportunity to see the Fuchia (which I’ve always loved) in such detail before. What a gift to have such a fantastic photographer in the family. Thanks,
    Love, Dot

    I have a huge file on everything you send me Stephen. My mother loved fresh flowers. She could of had a full colorful gallery to choose from If she had lived to enjoy these. I shall enjoy them as I do whenever I wish to go back to them.  Blessings,  Jan
