Mm, beautiful flowers! I agree with Kate, any kind of flowers are my favorite. My fringed tulips are just peeking open right now. They're always late bloomers too.

I love spring blossoms. Usually everything is in bloom over here at this time of year, but since we had an etremly warm spring most of the spring flowers are already gone. So now I am waiting for the summer flowers.

Lovely flowers, ours are all hidden away now, apart from the camelias they are stating to bud. Lovely FTF

I'm very jealous - it's autumn here, nearly winter, and damn cold.

beautiful surroundings you have there! Our flowering trees bloom for about two weeks - the prettiest time of your on our little street!

I know you're thrilled it's Spring and now I can see why.(aside from the fact you're not freezing your arse off) Those flowers and blossoms are so pretty.

Im afraid there isnt much of that going on here at the moment so keep posting pictures like these Diva so I can live vicariously through you!

Thanks for dropping by FTF this week.

I love the spring/summer blooms. I was driving down the street yesterday and smelled lilac for a good stretch of road. It was great!

Very beautiful flowers. I have some Iris blooming now and I just love them. I planted some poppies last year, but they haven't come back. I am so sad. Thanks for sharing your beautiful blooms!

I love spring flowers, in fact i love flowers full stop. Fortunately, even though it is autumn here, there are quite a few flowers still around.
