Flowers In My Neighborhood (April)

"These are the people flowers in my neighborhood..." (Remember the old children's song?). Well, I would like to show you some of these flowers, pictures that I have been taking for the past 2 months or so. For lack of space I will only post one of each. Aren't you glad that I won't post all 800 (rough guess) of them? You don't have to answer that, I can already hear you.

I don't know the names of all of them but, for those that I do, I will put the name under it. I guess I'll be showing my lack of knowledge (or memory) but perhaps my readers can help me out with some of the names.

This looks alot like azalea but I think it's something else. Anyone know?

The ever-beautiful daisy. These were wild, not cultivated (my DH calls them weeds), but nonetheless so lovely.

Rhododendron, which comes in several colors. I really should do a post just of them!

Pansies. The Portuguese language calls them "Amor Perfeito" or "perfect love". Like it?

Wisteria. Not sure if it's classified as a bush or tree. Maybe a vine. I just know one thing: it is SO beautiful!
 (I learned later it's a vine.)

Azalea, also of many colors. It's difficult for my camera to capture its true color but these really were hot pink!

Lavendar. This as well as others are at a neighbor's house. Love these little beauties!

Iris, from our neighbor-daughter's yard...as are the geranium and pansy above.

Do I need to tell you what this is? :) The spider already knows it's the most elegant place for her web.

Ok, so these tulips were in a grocery store but only a few miles away.

After seeing how many different kinds of flowers I have pictures of, I've decided to post only these of April.
 Later on this week I will post those I took in May.
Looking at flowers...those little creations of God with such amazing details...just makes me praise Him for Who He is and what He does. The Psalmist says it well:

Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created. (Psalm 148:5)


  1. An abundance of beautiful blooms! The joys of spring. Your sweet pea isn't a sweet pea but is still very pretty.

  2. Thank you for sharing! Your work is a true encouragement. Scrolling through the beautiful blooms was a bright spot in my evening. Um grande abraco
