More Flowers from Washington, DC

 Howdy effuryone! Welcome to Nature Friday, where we can meet some new friends and maybe share a picture or two of what nature looks like around Blogville. This week, we are showing you some of the flower pictures we found on Mama's phone from her trip to Washington DC in early March.
Due to their warm, rainy Winter,  Spring flowers could be found blooming everywhere in DC, even during the first week of March! Here we have a pretty purple hyacinth.  

 There were also some beautiful snow drops just like the ones Mama saw in our local botanical garden!

 One museum had this pretty pick hyacinth in their front entrance garden.
 Mama saw this unique flower on one of her walks. Imagine her surprise when she googled it and found out it was witch hazel! We never even thought of witch hazel having a flower!

 You learn something new everyday, right???

 Of course there were daffodils blooming everywhere! Mama loved the fluffy center in this daffie!
 ...and you can never go wrong with fields of daffies, right??
 We'll  wrap up this week's Nature Friday with another pretty purple hyacinth.
Thanks for joining us for some Spring Washington DC flowers this week. Here in New Mexico,  our backyard is FULL of blooms...starting with out crabapple tree blooms!
Join us next week as we show you what else is blooming in our backyard!

  7. Rosy you are still my favorite flower BUT OMDs there were some mighty pretty ones in DC too.
    I agree about Witch Hazel never thought of it as a flower...it is quite pretty. BUTT I sure do hope and pray there are no more blooming witches.
    Sunny and Rosy your poses were perfect

  8. Your mom found lots of beautiful blooms in Washington D.C. Not only is witch hazel pretty to look at, but they smell divine too!

  9. So pretty, sometimes I think we favor the vividness of the crabapple over the cherry blossoms!

  10. Java Bean: "Ayyy, sí, we have got blooms galore here! Not to mention weeds! SO MUCH RAIN THIS YEAR!!!"

  11. awesome flowers! love all the bright colors and the Rosey in the garden is my favorite flower of the post. at the dr office yesterday I saw hyacinths in a vase and touched them and they were fake. not as pretty as yours. I have never seen real ones, and thought I could say I did. your crab apple tree is gorgeous. we don't have any blooms, we just can't seem to get any rain
