Lovely, as always, but especially #3. Love purple flowers. Have a bunch in my yard myself, though we won't be seeing them for a while yet.

And the "you might also like" link? Spray Paint: It's What's For Dinner?!?!? I think I must read immediately. Heh, heh.

Ginny said...

What a beautiful sight for this Monday morning!! You are a good photographer!! So pretty! What is the white flower? We had one across the street, it looks a bit like a small hibiscus.

EmptyNester said...

Amazing, those pictures really did make me feel happy! Thank you!

Mary Ann said...

My favorite colours:)

Linda said...

I'm a sucker for macro photos of flowers, so #2 is probably my favorite. But they all provide a beautiful start to my week.

Madi and Mom said...

Morning BB...oh boy is mom late for her very important date with you!! Totally Dad's fault!! Mom is now joining Dad on his morning power walk at the mall. This moring it was 50 minutes then they ran errands. By the time they got home it was nearly lunch time. Retirement time flies by.

What lovely pictures. Mom would rather walk outside; however, our entire neighborhood is coated in pollen. So there will be no outside walks for a few weeks.

Hugs Madi and Mom

Ava Quinn said...

Thanks for the early blush of spring, Betty! It was much needed in my neck of the woods.

Ms. A said...

Wonderful Monday to you, Betty and have a terrific week.

I think I may have misspent my coin of life.

Jennifer Shirk said...

So lovely! Keep 'em coming, Betty!

I live where the flowers don't grow for half the year; I can hardly imagine having this kind of beauty around all the time. It's so lovely to see it every Monday - thank you.

Brian said...

You've brightened my Monday once again, thanks!

ds said...

Lovely flowers to adorn an otherwise dreary Monday. Thank you!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

We finally had a nice weather Monday and your flower pictures topped off a lovely day.

Ann said...

Happy Monday to you Betty. The flowers are a welcome site.

Daisy said...

warm wishes

Nicolasa said...

Gorgeous! The second one is memorizing!

Gigi said...

I am NEVER ready for Monday, Betty. Never. Maybe if you weren't in a different time zone and I received your beautiful flowers earlier.....but in any event, they always end my Monday with a smile! Hope you have a wonderful week!

Mamma has spoken said...

Purple!

Susan Fields said...

Beautiful flowers - thanks, Betty!

baygirl32 said...

Happy Monday Betty! love that white flower

Shan said...

Beautiful from start to finish!

By the way, this afternoon I tried to relate your story about writing on the board... and the part about dramatically leaving the gym after "the treadmill incident." Only I couldn't stop laughing long enough to tell it. Still cracking me up!

Kazzy said...

Big snowstorm here yesterday, but spring is coming, and I want to plant lots of flowers.

Marlene said...

Love the flowers, Betty. Also love the sentiment! Wise words!

Baby Sister said...

Oooh!! I love all the flowers you picked!! Good choices!!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Cheers, jj

faye said...

Beautiful flowers to start the
week... now can you work on the
weather this way ??

Hilary said...

Ack.. it's officially Tuesday now! Still lovely.. even though I'm late. Not a wilted one in the bunch.

SweetMarie83 said...

Gorgeous pictures! Makes me even more anxious for spring! I keep telling myself that all these gloomy, rainy days will lead to beautiful green grass, buds on the trees and flowers...and that at least it's rain and not snow because it could just as easily be snow!

scrapwordsmom said...

That first flower is amazing! Oh I can't wait for our flowers...love that time of year!!!!

Leovi said...

I love the beautiful tones you have achieved in these flowers, exquisite, deliciously attractive. Really beautiful.
