Some nice flowers!

Those are much nicer flamingoes than the plastic yard type ones I saw yesterday.

Your post just went LIVE. Thanks for visiting!!!
June 9, 2014 at 7:17 AM
Beautiful flowers. Off to check out your other post.
June 9, 2014 at 7:17 AM
I have flowers in my yard, but they are weeds.
June 9, 2014 at 7:28 AM
What gorgeous flowers you have! I wish I lived where hibiscus wasn't such a delicate, have to spend the money annually to have them, sort of flower. My neighbor buys them, as she spends a lot of time by her pool, but I just can't justify the cost for a single year.

Wonderful late spring / early summer blooms Carol :)
June 9, 2014 at 8:06 AM
Beautiful flowers. My clematis is going nuts right now. I love it. And the lupine! We're having a pretty good spring here for flowers. The right mix of sun and rain. :)
And congrats on that novel. Seeing it everywhere.

Alex - Live-In Handyman gets all the credit :)
Delores - Someone planted a whole flock at a house in our neighborhood several weeks ago. I think the owners were on vacation and came back to them LOL.
Robin - Thanks! I've just come back here from there :)
Mason - Cool :)
David - LOL! We have some of those, too.
Hart - Hibiscus is one of my favorites. Here they like lots of sun and lots of water. Ours don't always get lots of water, so they don't bloom as much as those that do.
OE - I don't tend them or they would die. Live-In Handyman has the green thumb.
L.G. - Clematis is so pretty. It doesn't grow here. Our spring bluebonnets are a form of lupine.

Gorgeous flowers! Loved your interview at Robins place. Oh, and I also love the pink flamingos :)

JUST beautiful.Nothing is more lovely than blooming flowers!
June 9, 2014 at 12:15 PM
Jen - I love new followers! Thank you :)
Stephanie - Maybe I should run a contest to name them....
Marcy - Thanks.
Michael - I wish they'd bloom all year.
June 9, 2014 at 12:44 PM
Such beautiful flowers! And those flamingos make me laugh. :)
June 9, 2014 at 1:13 PM
Love your bloomers - and your non-bloomers too.
June 9, 2014 at 3:09 PM
I guess I'll need to know what provoked that flamingo on the right. His feathers are in a twit.
Lovely blooms. Guess I'll have to find out what you're talking about and visit Your Daily Dose.
June 9, 2014 at 3:18 PM
Gorgeous! We planted our annuals yesterday :)
June 9, 2014 at 3:37 PM
What a fabulous flamingo!
Love the flowers too!

I love the flowers growing from the fern-like plants.
June 9, 2014 at 5:02 PM
Cherie - Me, too :)
EC - I thought about titling the post "See My Bloomers" or something similar, but I thought I may get banned from Blogger if I did :)
Lee - He's having a bad feather day :)
Jemi - We're already in the 90s here. I may put some vinca in the front. It's the one thing I can't kill.
Michelle - Thanks. I'd tell him, but he's already a little arrogant :)
Diane - I think those are called Pride of Barbados. I could easily be wrong.
June 9, 2014 at 5:16 PM
If love is a flower, then I'm in bloom.
June 9, 2014 at 7:04 PM
What a blooming delightful post. It seems I am here and soon I will be there, yes over there at Robin's. When I get there I shall make mention of I was here and that means I could come back here and tell you I was over there and....
June 9, 2014 at 7:12 PM
Really nice flowers
June 9, 2014 at 10:03 PM
Gorgeous flowers. Me, I think my favorite flowers are irises, and they're blooming all over my neighborhood. I'm headed over to Robin's now...
June 9, 2014 at 10:18 PM
Flowers are beautiful! What gorgeous colors.
I have hibiscus too (purple). So glad it's summer (almost) and everything is blooming. Yay
June 10, 2014 at 3:16 AM
Love the flamingos. LOL
June 10, 2014 at 8:37 AM
Janie - Great line! I may steal it, LOL :)
Gary - You're everywhere!
Jo-Anne - Thanks. I love them, but Live-In Handyman is the gardener. I have a black thumb :(
Helena - On any particular day, my favorite varies between hibiscus, iris, daisy, and bird of paradise. I also love peonies, but they don't grow here and I rarely see them.
LR - Ooh, I bet your hibiscus is gorgeous!
Melissa - They stand on a cabinet in the corner of my office. And make me smile :)
June 10, 2014 at 9:54 AM
Very nice. I especially like the shades of pinks and reds in that first photo.
You're rocking blogland with your book, Carol. I'm excited for you!
June 10, 2014 at 7:59 PM
So pretty. Hibiscus is my favorite flower.
June 11, 2014 at 9:19 AM
Very pretty! Those pictures make me want to take a jaunt out my back door to just enjoy nature.

Medeia - One of mine, too.
Crystal - It was too hot to jaunt very far today LOL.
Editors - My pleasure!
June 11, 2014 at 6:08 PM
I love spring flowers. Ours were delayed because of the long winter. I thought we would never have flowers.
June 12, 2014 at 6:57 AM
Stina - Seemed like winter would never end!

Gorgeous flowers! (And I don't have to weed or water them!)
Heading to Robin's now...
June 13, 2014 at 10:38 AM
Lovely flowers, Carol! You must be very happy with the blooms after your long winter!
June 14, 2014 at 12:51 AM
I loved your post on paying it forward. Your monthly giveaway idea is awesome! I also love the red and pink flowers. And the birds made me laugh - zombie flamingos!
June 14, 2014 at 3:12 AM
Susan - There's a lot to be said about not having to weed :)
Val - Yes, I love flowers!
Lexa - Thanks. Love 'zombie flamingos'!
