APRIL SHOWERS - MAY FLOWERS



That's how it looked a few days ago as rain showers moved in for a day.

Here's what it produced.


Those are called mock roses and they are the first to bloom.




The last three are called Firecracker Roses.

I think you can see why.

I've never heard of firecracker roses, but they sure are pretty.

Where are the daffodils? :-)
It appears that you have sent all the clouds this way...

Beautiful flowers. Show us your entire yard, please. It must look like a botanical garden. :)

Nice photos. What camera are you using?

Bruce Taylor, a.k.a. Catalyst said...

Nikon Coolpix. Point-and-shoot. I did use a tripod for the close-ups, though.

Steve said...

Nikon makes some good cameras.

There is a rose named 'Firecracker', but the rose in your photos is 'Fourth of July'.
Great pics!
