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,

love is all around when violets are all around

Violets are one of Spring’s most loved flowers – few plants symbolize the renewal of nature as much as the violet.

Violets have already started to pop up so I went for another photo walk to discover and photograph them.

More blue violets:

Even more violets!

It was lovely sunny morning and as you see I found lots of lovely blue violets.

Have a sunny day you too,

Blossom Time

Some early Spring trees are blooming in Tbilisi and I’m so excited. I walk in the city like a shopaholic in a shopping mall, searching for the perfect Spring accessory – beautiful blossoms!

And I like all of them! Especially plum blossoms, which usually open well before the leaves, creating a cloud of white flowers against a backdrop of leafless branches.

After a warm February in Tbilisi, plum and apple trees have already reached full bloom.

I love them when they are at their brightest and best!

This is a tiny part of my tree blossom collection:

That’s all for today. In a couple of days I will post more blossom photos. I promise!

Have a great Spring day,

Shorena

These Beautiful Waterlilies…

Water lilies are one of the most beautiful and elegant plants in the world. They symbolize different things in different countries – rebirth and optimism, creation, fertility, purity and pleasure, peace and spiritual enlightenment, sexuality, abundance and innocence, etc.

These colorful photos I took last summer in Tbilisi Botanical Garden, gardening center ‘Gardenia’ and some other places.

…And I’m looking forward to time when I can go for waterlily ‘photo hunt’ again.

Have a nice time,

Shorena
