Touched by the Sun

Photographing flowers in bright sunlight doesn't always produce the best results, but sometimes you just have to take the opportunities when they arise, especially with a wind threatening to turn many flowers and blossoms brown in no time at all.

Red Wing Azalea

White Dogwood buds

Cherry blossom

Dutch Iris

Centranthus and Wallflowers


Gazanias and curly-leafed parsley

All your colors are so rich !!
Alice, what's your day and night time temperature right now?

Thanks for giving me your zone.
It sounds like your zone is more Florida here but with a very very high altitude. I bet the weather is great all year long.

I'm loving spring in your garden, Alice! The Azaleas are wonderful! Wish I could see those rich colours in person. I'm envious of your flowering fruit trees. The cherry blossoms are such a beautiful sight!
You'd laugh at my's tiny, and has had only a few small blooms, but Richard would probably like it :) Maybe it'll grow bigger next year.
Blue bells! I'd love some of those...and the gazanias look pretty growing beside the parsley.
Thanks for this Sunday morning stroll through your lovely garden, Alice :)
Your photos came out beautifully in spite of the bright sunshine.

It's nice to know that though things are starting to die here, they are just coming to life in another part of the world! Your azaleas are beautiful!

Wonderful photos. You have so much going on right now in your garden. I'm still waiting for fall--now just weeks away!

Looks like spring has definitely sprung in your garden - the flowers look wonderful. And those cherry blossoms are spectacular!

Missy... I have some plants I need you to identify for me. I just need to remember to photograph them tomorrow lol. Such gorgeous colours. I have lots of hibiscus in my garden and loads of carmallias but not one azalea. You are so truly blessed with the greenest of green thumbs. xox Nicole
