Wonderful Vinka!

I was ‘hunting’ for beautiful Vinka flowers yesterday – it was not easy to find them as they love to hide their beauty from the sun, especially behind other plants. However I won our Hide and Seek game and found several Vinka hiding places!

One of the most popular ground cover plants, it can thrive in both cold and warm climates. It blooms prolifically, is easy to grow and tolerates poor soil and drought.

Have a beautiful day,

I was finding and photographing lovely Iris flowers for the last couple of weeks.
Here are some pictures of the first and last Iris flowers to bloom this year. I found blue, purple and white colors.

Nature is the best artist, isn’t it? More iris photos:

Did you know that an Iris flower has great spiritual meaning in different countries? It is a symbol of creativity, great power and good news ^^

Have a happy day, full of only good news 🙂

Lovely Lilac in Bloom!

The lilac is in bloom now and smells utterly divine. I do love it so much! The lilac season is one of my favorite things about spring – the most fragrant time of the year.

Here are some photos of beautifully blooming purple and white lilacs
I found while walking in parks, woodland and even in flower markets.
It was very pleasant to be around lilac bushes because of their delicious scent – in fact I could smell them before I saw them!

Blooming Sky

More blooms – more spring. An explosion of Blooms was continuing for last several days and I was focusing on the blooming sky this time.

I’m so pleased I took these photos, because it was snowing (!) in Tbilisi this morning and almost all blooms were gone!

You can see more blooming tree photos here.

Have a great day,

Shorena

Focusing on Daffodils

Daffodils are one of the most popular flowers in the world. The simple beauty of trumpet-shape blooms is so charming.

Did you know there are up to 13,000 different hybrid varieties of daffodils (botanical name: narcissus). They are among the first flowers of spring.

In some countries people believe that bringing home a bouquet of daffodils brings happiness into the home. However, you should avoid presenting someone with a single daffodil as some believe that it foretells misfortune.

In Wales, the daffodil is the national flower. According to legend, if you see the first daffodil, your next 12 months will be filled with wealth. Keep this mind for next spring!

Have a happy time,

Shorena
