Weekend Whimsy: Life in Florida: FLORA

A few weeks ago,  I blogged about the animals so this week we'll take a look at the plants.

Right now the azalea, dogwoods, redbuds and wild plum are in bloom.  It's a great time to be in North Florida if you love to take photos of flowers and plants.
White Azalea

Pink Azalea
Very soon, the citrus trees will be blooming.  I LOVE it when they bloom.  It's usually still cool enough to have the windows open and the spring breeze wafts the heavenly perfume of the orange blossoms inside!
I believe this one is called wisteria.  It will begin to bloom in a few weeks and will continue for most of the summer.
And my amaryllis are already putting out new growth.  By Easter, I will have huge trumpet shaped blooms.
Later in the summer, we will get some hot weather favorites like Hibiscus.
And Bromeliad.....
And Crepe Myrtle.....
I think this one is related to the Bird of Paradise.....
And I don't really know the name of this one!
Anyway, just a few of the Floral beauties we have in Florida!

Have a great weekend!
