They're all beautiful, well, except daffodils (to me)-- up close, but I love even those in mass. Makes me want to run outside and plant more flowers. Some of these I have never seen before.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

And you guys know how to grow all this? I'm truly impressed. My gardening skills are limited by my body, sadly.

Happy TT, though! Enjoy those plants (I really did, as it's snowing here today!)

Miss Positive said...

Interesting...I just got a lesson on different type of plants!

Barbara said...

Beautiful flowers. I have a forsythia bush that is huge! One big mass of yellow blooms this Spring, but it's now solid green.

Thanks for visiting my TT.

CountryDew said...

Cool beans. I wrote about flowers for my TT too! Great list. Green thumbs are very good.

Top of your list is the Laburnum - it's mine too! In Denmark they call it 'Guldregn', which I always thought meant 'Gold Rain' - a perfect name for such a beautiful tree. A couple of years ago, though, I was disappointed to find it actually meant 'Yellow Rain', but in my mind it will always be Golden!!

Nice list!

The pink camellia is gorgeous.
