Five on Friday

plum



We miss the warmth and the blue skies we enjoyed during our 
 time in Italy in March, but the colourful blooms here in the UK cheer us.
  It was hard to choose just a few examples of Nature's beauties
 from both countries for Five on Friday Weekly Meetup.
Thank you Tricky and Carly for organising the Meetup.
Do go over to their blog and see what others have posted this week.

apple blossom, tulip 'Rembrandt' and parrot tulip 'Rococco',
large cupped daffodils 'Red Devon'



schlumbergera ('Christmas cactus' ), flowering this season



Wishing you a good day and a peaceful weekend.

  12. Flowers in spring...just the antidote for a long, hard winter. My corner is still waiting for some, but I am confident it will happen. Your selections are lovely. Oh, and I enjoyed the post featuring the gardens and paths over the river and that book wallpaper...delightful!

  20. Those would definitely be favorites, but I must say apple blossoms are my all time favorite. Our tulips and daffodils are now past blooming, but there are apple blossoms around town.
