Flower Walk

I have my mother to thank for my love of flowers. She always has a nice yard and I learned most of what I know about flowers from her.
Miller and I spend a lot of time at the school while Jackson has soccer practices and games.  Often times, while we are waiting, we go for a flower walk and look for flowers that are in bloom.  Some times I have my camera or my phone, but just as often, I don’t.  Here are a few things that were in bloom recently.

This lovely is an Angel Trumpet.  Terry Gentry, I think of you for some reason when I see an Angel Trumpet.

These are very common.  They are called Desert Rose, I think.

This bottle brush tree is so pretty right  now.  They remind me of something that would be in a Dr. Seuss book.april2 (16)
If you look closely you can see a bee coming in on the right side.

The bougainvillea is amazing right now.  This one has lots of varieties even in the same branch.
