I'm getting envious here ;) All that abundance in colour all year round. Here we're tossed between 'nothing' in the winter months and then all of a sudden in May an explosion of colour. This spring our blossoming trees are exceptionally stunning.

Gorgeous blooms! That is one thing I miss about living down south. Right now everything is blooming but come winter there will be nothing.

You have a lovely collection of flowers in your yard and so lucky to have flowers all year round.

Mama-Bug said...

They're all beautiful Sandra!

Jama said...

Most of the flowers here can be found in my country too, since we only have sunny and rainy days...no other season!

I certainly hope I can get my flowers on Remington Drive to look like that! Have a fun weekend! See you on Monday, my friend!

Sunny said...

Amazing blossoms! Makes me want to sniff my monitor!
Have a delightful weekend.

I'm envious of all the beauty you year-round in Florida, but I think I'll stay up here in our mountains. But I do thank you for sharing all of these beauties with us.

Beautiful collection of flowers. How nice to have them year-round!

Okay girl I'm a little jealous here - not only do you have the neatest camera - but the most wonderful blooms!!!!!!!!! Now we have some flowers all year round - nothing like that though. Spring time is not a season my mom used to say - it is a blessing - you have that blessing all year round.

Denise said...

It must be wonderful to live in a climate where you can enjoy flowers all year long. I remember my last vacation in Florida and was in awe of both flowers and the birdlife down there. Your photos are amazing. Have a great weekend.

Awe Shucks.... Now I'm totally jealous... Your YEAR-ROUND flowers are gorgeous... We have some pretty ones here --but as you know, ours are NOT year-round.... Oh Well... Guess I'll just sit here and pout.
Hugs,
Betsy

Thanks Sandra for a lot of colorful blooms - a yearful too!

Ann said...

How wonderful to have year round flowers. They are all so pretty. You should make up your own calendar.

Regina said...

All just super!! So lovely..the second looks like a Bottle brush and the February image is very similar to our Ohia blossom (that shot is gorgeous). The wild sunflower is one we have like the purple .. I'm sure you never get tired of them (my favorite) along with the hibicus!
I just got back from town and noticed Phil posted an update from Ginny..not sure if your back- till later:)

Pauline said...

One month as lovely as the next - how fortunate you are! And you captured them beautifully, too.

This is one of the things I love about FLA - seeing amazing flowers while walking down the street! Love the orange hibiscus!

Camella Black said...

Okay you made me homesick... I have tried 3 times to get a bottlebrush tree to grow here in SC; others have done it but not in my yard. My greatgrandmother had two massive ones in her yard and well I all I can say is, the shots are wonderful and I miss Florida!

Doreen said...

woohoo!! what a great yard you have. all are so gorgeous. love the yellow one for oct.

GingerV said...

wonderful year round flowers, lucky girl to have all this beauty around you. have a great week.

Bagman and Butler said...

Year around flowers -- I think we sort of have that in South Carolina but not the color and richness you've captured here...or maybe I haven't looked hard enough. Som of these flowers are hard to believe! Mother nature is amazinly creative.

Rebecca said...

Nice selection. I like the first few. They look interesting.
