Beautiful.....

The first flower seems as if it would be a tiny one. Guess it reminds me of tiny flowers, in my "neck of the woods." :-) Which of course, doesn't mean that this flower of yours, is the same size...

Gentle hugs,
Tessa~

These photographs are just beautiful. I especially love the magnolia. One of my very favorite spring flowers.

Have a wonderful weekend!

You may not have figs, but you certaainly have some exotic plants in your garden, even with Spring just beginning for you.
Cineraria is something I only know as a houseplant.
