Today's Flowers Blue Bells

Posted by Picasa


The Blue Bells are currently in full bloom in Iowa, which is a good 2-3 weeks earlier than normal.    Growing up I remember picking them for Mary's May alter.  I have had them growing in my yard for over 30 years, they are so pretty with the buds being pink and the flowers the most beautiful sky blue.

Love the blue and the touch of pink!
Very well captured.

Your comment to me that you had never seen Wisteria in real life - I inherited mine when we bought this home two years ago. I wouldn't want to be without it. It covers the pergola over my deck.
