Great photos. I do so love that hibiscus. The color and the double blooms are outstanding. I wonder if it would be hardy in my area?

Great bloom day post.

You've put me in the tulip mood! I think I'm going to have to pick myself up a bunch from the flower shop today!

Hi Darla, what a color on that hibiscus! It is my favorite color. It is so springy in your area, candytuft and everything looking great. Hooray for blueberry flowers! Yum!

To think Spring is actually sprouting in some areas -- heavenly! Loved these beautiful photos. The hibiscus is one of my very favorites -- I had one last year and it bloomed and bloomed!

Wooo Darla, I can't believe you have never had tulips. They are one of our favorites (along with our lilies, our irises, our roses, etc.)... ha

Beautiful colors of your hibiscus.

Great pictures. All of your flowers are so pretty.

Great photos and beautiful flowers! The color of that hibiscus is fantastic! And in reply to your comment on my blog, yes, I take many, many bad photos as I'm still trying to learn to manually take photos. :-)

I can't believe all of the blooms you have. We are still looking at snow.

the salmon hibiscus flowers are such a beautiful color. All your flowers look wonderful. Florida is kinder to plants and flowers than our Arizona desert, so your flowers always look brighter.

Pretty flowers! Enjoy the tulips while you can -- they only bloom for one or possible two years here in Florida.

Your blooms look awesome. I love the Peach hibiscus especially.

Hey, you know your sign on the sidebar that says--Live long, talk much====the end of that saying is laugh often. Does yours say that? Live long, talk much, and laugh often.

Beautiful hibscus, you are right that it is more peachy than the one I posted. Love tulips too. I don't have much luck with tulips, they never seem to come back. I am into planting and returning year after year.
