Beautiful Blooms

From Adriel:
Look what I was surprised with!!!

I planted iris bulbs a few years ago and one of them popped up again this year with a bloom! What a nice surprise!! I just love flowers... here's a couple more.

This is a blossom on my lemon tree. My brother got this tree for me on my last birthday (last May) and I have been waiting and waiting and now there's tiny little baby lemons all over it! =) (And yes, I realize the blossom itself is not the baby lemon... this is just one of the blossoms left over that didn't actually get pollinated and did not become a baby lemon. *grin*)

Another flower from my potted aptenia (I guess I'm spelling that right).

I just love that bright pink!

I would have had another photo to show you, but as I went over the shoot a picture of another flower, I heard some buzzing (somewhat loud), which sounded like several bees and then I saw something flying close by and I got scared and ran inside. Now stop chuckling... I thought I was being attacked by a swarm of bees!!! So alas, didn't get the fourth pic. But that's okay, because I don't even know the name of the plant and then I would have had to look like a dummy... LOL!
Well, enjoy the pictures and savor them, because flowers don't last long! =(

What beautiful flowers! How fun to have a lemon tree! And, I don't blame you for running inside at the sound of buzzing... Very smart thing to do! :)
