Maybe the plentiful rains. Maybe I’m just being more attentive. I am not sure why the blooms have been so vibrant this spring, but they have been glorious. I have taken some treks this spring to look for wildflowers, but some of the most impressive flowers have been around town. No matter where I go, neighbors’ yards and landscaping displays alongside freeways, by restaurants and hotels and even in shopping malls are bright and brilliant with flowers.
I also love the new growth greens that are so very evident in the spring. Green continues to be my favorite color.
Most of the flowers shared here are from around town, near my apartment in Bakersfield, CA. But the Bird of Paradise and Calla Lilies were in bloom near a restaurant in Valencia, and the Pansies and Red Yucca were near my hotel in Las Vegas.
A great blogger I follow recently shared some wonderful photos of dogwood blossoms in Yosemite National Park.
Where have you been finding spring blossoms this year?
