Monday Morning Flowers


Good Mondays To You All!

Spring Break is over here, so it's back to school for me.

Hope you have a great week!

Thanks for the gorgeous flowers, and thanks for stopping by this morning, Betty.

Wishing you a marvelous re-entry to your school routine.

Beautiful flowers! I hope you have a really great first week of Spring.

Flartus said...

Oh, you were on Spring Break! Well, that explains your absence. I hope you and your students are all refreshed now, ready to finish up the semster with panache. (Because that's how Betty does things.)

CiCi said...

Well darn, I didn't have a spring break though.

This is the first time in years that I feel like I could go somewhere, travel to see someone. I have been hiding away long enough.

Hope your week was more than pleasant, full of joy.

Madi and Mom said...

Morning BB and thank you for the lovely posies. I love the lantana.
Oh I put my hummingbird feeder out last week. Earliest ever but it has been so warm. Our dogwoods and red buds are blooming.
Hugs and I hope your week goes smoothly,
Hugs Madi and Mom

Retired English Teacher said...

I love that quote. It is so true. As always, I loved the flowers.

Ann said...

That doesn't seem quite right that spring break is over when it isn't even officially spring yet. I would protest :)

Daisy said...

The flowers are absolutely gorgeous today, Betty. Thank you! I hope you have a great week too. :)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Love the flowers. I finally have some of my own to enjoy. The daffodils are open and adding bright splashes to the winter blahs.

Ms. A said...

I hope yours was more exciting than mine!

julie fedderson said...

Joanna Jenkins said...

faye said...

Catherine said...

Spring break?? Do you have spring there Betty? We had it for a couple of weeks but old man winter fell upon us last night. Well it's all so very depressing. *wipes tear from eye* Alas I shall have to take pleasure in your sunny flowers this morning. Thank you..... ;)

xo Catherine

Liz said...

What type of flower is the middle photo? That makes me happy.

I love the colors I'm seeing on your blog, BB. They are very springish and very much a fresh, happy restart for you!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Those magnolias are just gorgeous. What a treat to see all of these.

Hilary said...

Beautiful petals. Spring has indeed sprung.. even here.

Lindy MacDuff said...

I always love to see what beautiful flowers you've shared. Today's did not disappoint. The lantana makes me long for our Arizona home. Have you ever noticed they smell slightly like chrysanthemums when you cut them?

Baby Sister said...

Your flowers are always so beautiful!! :)

Pat Tillett said...

Thanks for the pretties!
Spring break is over? Somebody better tell all the crazy youngsters I saw at Lake Havasu today!
