Mums with my Mum

I noticed it for the first time on Easter Sunday
the vibrant rich yellow flowering trees


when the wind blows
the yellow flowers flutter the the ground.






While my mom was here,


 we visited Leu gardens.

My mom loves flowers!
I could be completely wrong, but I think that these are Mums that I saw with my Mum (ABC Wed letter M) 
My parents are great at gardening 
they have flowers and delicious vegetables all spring and summer.  
I took home my student's plants over spring break...


and  killed about half of them. 
We also took a tour of the house, but that was a little too much information.

We had a fun afternoon walking the gardens, smelling the flowers, touring the house and enjoying our time together.

I wonder what kind of tree that is with the yellow flowers. It is gorgeous! Dropping by from Outdoor Wednesday.

Wow, the yellow in those first photos is quite strong. It is interesting to watch it morph into the pinks and purples of the flowers in the middle of the set.

All my Canadian friends that wintered in Florida this year had stories of how cold it was. One of the coldest in years. With you M&M photos it's nice to see that things are getting back to normal.

I like the larger pictures. Great little tour of all the flowers. I love when petals fall from trees - it feels so mystical to me.

Lovely shots .. we aren't quite that far into the warm weather yet.

The yellow flowering tree is so beautiful! The petals look a little like crepe paper! And love the macros of flowers! Really stunning!
