Those flowers are a sheer delight. Many years ago my dad used to grow columbine, such a dainty flower.

Absolutely delightful - thank you. And I think I have all of them except the last.

Ginny said...

Your bluebells are a special type, called Spanish Scilla! Basically they are bluebells native to Spain. The last flower is awesome, I have never seen one.

Beautiful shots of some lovely flowers Denise. Have a nice weekend.

Valerie said...

Oooh some of my favourites there, Denise. Love Columbines, I always think of them as little ballerinas. And bluebells are filling my house right now, though sadly not for much longer. Hope you have a happy weekend.

Karen S. said...

These sure are treasures! I can't wait to see some blossoms around my own gardens!

Each flower special and different from the other. Many of these lovely blooms reappear like magic each year in parks around my neck of the woods. They seem stronger each spring and in less need of care surviving winter and all kinds of weather!

gigihawaii said...

Lovely flowers and lovely critters. You sure have been busy with your camera!

I have many of these flowers in my garden, or did. The more aggressive ones are taking over! Nice photos Denise.

William Kendall said...

Beautiful, Denise! The bluebells tend to appeal to me the most.

Lovely every one. That's a wonderful garden. On one of the first RV trips we took, we found Columbines growing wild in Colorado, where it's the State flower .. I thought it would be fun to try to find every State flower as we traveled, but that didn't happen. (Not even sure if every State has one.)

As always, your photos are delightful and it's so nice to stop by and look at them. I know you enjoyed taking them, and then editing which ones to show here. The beauty makes all that work worth while, I hope.

Fabulous macros! And I love those snowballs. Hope you have an awesome week! Can't wait to see what pictures I'll be getting at Madera Canyon! :-) I know I'll be sleeping like a baby on that bed....we are staying in the Bird's Nest Suite.

My dear Denise,
I'm so sorry for visiting you and your beautiful pictures of these pretty, pretty flowers so late!
I love little Bluebells very much and your Ox-eye Daisies remind me of my beloved Grandma...the wild form of them were one of her favourite flowers :)
But also the opulence of the Chinese snowball and the wonderful colours of the Azalea, Columbine and the Centura Montana are a feast for my eyes!!!
