Have a great weekend!

Last weekend I would have agreed, but we had another wintry visit this week...your flowers here are so lovely and if only they were growing in my own flower bed!

Spring is sprung, and good neighbours to boot. Sounds like all in the garden is roses
Nice flower photo too.
Have a nice week.

Today in Oregon we're having a truly beautiful day. I'm planning a walk to enjoy the flowers in the neighborhood.

Wow what a beautiful bouquet! I love tulips and daffodils - they signify the start of spring every year!

Such a lovely photo. The unusual light really is perfect. As to pollinating your Meyer lemon with a Qtip, I am not sure. I know apples need another tree's pollen, even a branch in water under your tree if one is not nearby, but lemons I don't know. But hey, it couldn't hurt!

Beautiful flowers and wonderful friends!

Leovi said...

Exquisite flowers, delicateness in colors, exquisite play of light and shadow, wonderful photos!

We've had glorious weather in Scotland this past week, springlike indeed. Time to put the hot water bottles to their beds, methinks!

Tulips are my favourite spring flower - especially Queen Of The Night - she goes with every colour does her majesty!

Oh, I've just noticed Feline Friday in the post below. I might check it out shortly as I'm looking for fun things to do on my other blog!

Jim said...

Great colours.

Ralph said...

The flowers sit like sunny orbs in their arrangement. The real sun intrudes and thus is the perfect spring combo of warm sun and cooling shadows. Lovely indeed!

Jess said...

blogitse said...

Spring is there, spring is here - the best time of the year!

They are beautiful. What kind neighbours.

Jim said...

Hi Kathe ~~ You do have good neighbors!!! Isn't that nice!!! I am sure though, that you are nice neighbors for them as well.

Ours are okay, nicer on one side than the other. The other left us two plumeria bushes, but they were really his that he planted on our property. We made him move them off.

Sorry I'm so late in returning. I had the fun duty of playing with youth yesterday morning and early afternoon. My post was fishing. I actually caught a fish.
Then in the evening we attended a wedding.
