Morning flower walk around my condo...:)

I don't usually get up too early but I happened to find myself awake the other morning and I grabbed my lens and went downstairs for some exploring. I figured it would be better if the sun were more toward the East since when it hovers toward the West, my pictures would include the parking lot and bits of the condo building. So here's what I found. I don't know the names of some of these flowers, by the way so if anyone knows...feel free to comment! ; )

I think this flowering tree is a Kwanza cherry. I looked up some similar flowers on Flickr and compared them. Here's another one:

Processed with my favorite Florabella actions for Photoshop.

I love these tiny little blooms because the petals look like hearts!

Above there are a lot of tulips but I like the ones that are multicolored. Again with the heart shaped petals...see it?

Hens and chickens are the name for these small, rose shaped succulents that are growing in a small container garden near my entryway.

I have no idea what these little buds are or what they will be.
And these are some saucer magnolias that I took photos of this weekend on Cape Cod. These are possibly my new favorite flowering trees.

Hope you enjoyed....the next week is going to be a little rainy and blah here...hope to get out again this coming weekend for more.

So pretty! I think the little purple ones are lilac. Were they on a large bush/tree? They are one of my favorites. Take good sniff next time you are nearby - they smell heavenly.

Ohh I'm going to check into that Victoria...they were tiny buds on a vine though..not a tree. I'll have to watch as they grow!

Gorgeous :)

The purple buds are Lilacs! Victoria is right they smell amazing when they are out, I have some planted right outside my back door even though it is different from the tree we had in our garden grown up, it reminds me of Spring in England :)

Have a lovely evening, T. :)
