Happy Iris Day!

This unique, tall flower produces nectar for insects and is celebrated for its distinctive beauty. With over 300 species, the Iris is an excellent feature in garden landscapes, with a variety of colors.

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!

Cherry blossom time

Cherry blossom time is the most beautiful time of the year when trees come out of hibernation by putting up a show for us.

Cherry blossoms were in full bloom when I went for photo walk to capture 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
