After this long cold winter, the Spring Flowers have started to bloom and I wanted to share the beauty with you all. While the daffodils were out while the snow was falling this year we are skipping straight to the amazing Pansy that can be planted in the Fall here and it will last thru the winter, even this cold winter.
The next flower can be found on the many dogwood trees in Spring time here in Virginia. We don’t have any pink dogwood flowers which are even more beautiful
It is not Spring in the south until the Azeleas bloom. We are lucky to have Azeleas in almost every color of the rainbow.
My least favorite is white but they still are beautiful.
Yet another color.
The multicolor Azeleas are my fav.
While I love Peonies and you can read tips on how to take care of Peony bushes in this post, I was given a few volunteers from a friends parent’s plants and this one has bloomed for the last two years. Be patient I have had these plants for 4 years at least.
This Peony Tree has blooms that are tea cup size and are so beautiful I would never cut them.
Lily of the Valley Flowers are well known for being in Bridal bouquets. I love picking a few and placing in our guest bathroom. What a beautiful smell from such a small flower.
While the Lilacs are already gone, I love bringing these in the house too. These remind me of the lilac bush in my front yard at home.
I can’t take credit for these lovely tulips, these were from the Cincinnati Zoo. Spring is definitely official when these babies bloom. Unfortunately something ate all my tulips this year before they had a chance to bloom.
I wish I had better luck with Irises. I have many green leaves but few flowers. They are so beautiful.
Unfortunately Virginia’s 2nd state flower is pollen. While I am trying to enjoy the flowers of Spring, our allergies have another plan.
While these are only a few of these amazing Spring Flowers in Richmond, I hope they bring thoughts of warmer weather and maybe even some great memories.

Do you have a flower that brings back a certain memory?
