I know it’s certainly not specific to my yard this time of year since spring is bustin’ out all over…but Saturday morning when I went out to feed the outdoor cats, there were blooms and flowers everywhere, birds cavorting, butterflies flitting, so that it seemed like a spring wonderland.

This is a huge vine that goes across most of the front of our house and one of the sides. Twice a year it blooms so it’s pretty extravagant.

My hibiscus is coming back after being slightly damaged by the frost even though it was covered.

The lantana also had frost damage but it’s coming back nicely. They’re very hardy.

It was so colorful and vibrant that I had to try to capture some of it.

  1. wow some of those are so exotic looking. A pomegranate flower! I’ve never seen one before. I adore hibiscus and since we’ve moved we now have a tiny little hibiscus that blooms profusely.

  2. And you did capture the essence of spring in this series. I was a bit surprised that you experienced some impact of freezing temperatures. A strong series of pictures.

  3. What a perfect title for this post, Candace!
    All of these are wonderful, but that hibiscus is absolutely gorgeous. Such an amazing color. It makes me think of a sunset.
    Wishing you a fantastic day!
