Today's Flowers

I WISH I could stop my car and take pictures of all the breathtaking blooms this time of year. This one below was taken at the parking lot of a mall. There are hundreds of these beauties around our area. (click images to enlarge)

Here's a close-up.

This is my forsythia gone wild! They shine every spring!

Talking about wild, here's a flowering quince competing for light with the forsythia.

Our apple tree..

These are all wonderful shots of spring blooms. I love the trees in bloom and forsythia, especially when allowed to go wild, is a favorite of mine.
