Flowers in the Spring Light

Helianthemum St. Mary
Clear sunlight penetrating the delicate tissue of all kinds of petals illuminates the garden.


The humblest of flowers shine brilliantly in spring sunshine. Drawn from our winter habitats, we peer into these miracles of color and light with our eyes and camera lenses.

The ever-changing patterns of color and light are an eternal source of fascination in every garden.

Bright, happy pansies are always welcome


  1. Lovely shots, and I really like the Pink Lemonade honeysuckle.

    Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

  2. Thank you, FlowerLady. I love the Pink Lemonade, too. The colors as it opens are lovely, and a wonderful sweet scent tops it off.

  3. Hello, Sandra !
    Oh, how lovely. Very enchanting pictures... absolutely beautiful flowers. My favorite is a Pink Lemonade Honeysuckle, it must be so fragrant.

  4. Thank you, Sandra!
    It has a lovely, light sweet fragrance.

  5. The pink honeysuckle is one of my favorite plants! Here it practically blooms all year and wasn't even affected by the below 0 temps this year! Love it.

    I enjoyed seeing the photos of the clematis. I really want to plant clematis but I am a little intimidated by it.

    Thanks for visiting me at Cowgirl Culture!

  6. Thank you, Kelsey!
    Love your blog. I adore the lower deserts were I lived most of my life,in Phoenix, AZ and Sedona, AZ. I grew up riding the Sonoran desert on a quarter horse; happy times they were!
    Thanks for your comment.
