Spring Flowers - GAWE - 2013 #2

(This posting is the second of a two-part series.)  This Spring, as in past years, there were a number of beautiful flowers found in the Gardens at Waters East.  Here are a few never before seen photos of the many blossoms during the Spring months of April and May 2013.

Enjoy your time strolling the paths here on the shores of Lake Michigan.

  1. Wunderschöne Bilder eines fast schon wieder beendeten Frühjahrs.
    Obwohl wir so weit von einander entfernt wohnen, wachsen in unseren Gärten hauptsächlich die gleichen Pflanzenarten.

  3. Calling you soon! We arrived on Thursday; crashing and burning tomorrow and probably Monday, too! Love the pics!

  4. Thank you for stopping by! You have an amazing eye and yours gardens are quite lovely--your property, inspirational. So glad to be sifting through your blog--it's all been amazing so far and have found so many "new" things to consider in the future! :) That star magnolia really is an eye catcher.

  5. Love those beautiful blooms! Stunning photos! Thanks for the nice share!

  6. Jack, your daffodils are beautiful, especially one with red center. I think the first photo is of Chionodoxa, isn't it?

  7. One of my favorite songs has the words "Virginia Blue Bells" in it and now I can see why.. what beautiful flowers!!

  8. Out of this world!!! I feel the cool lake breezes as the little birds and bees make their ways around the flowers. Very nice!
