  1. Wow! What a wonderfully colourful post, beautifully captured Scott. We’re currently being battered by 70mph winds and driving rain here in Cornwall. No sign of summer so, this post cheered me up no end. Thank you.

    • Thank you, Chillbrook…I’m glad it brought a bit of color to your otherwise dreary day. And 70mph winds must be crazy…we’ve had an increase in wind the past few days…with a 20 degree drop in temps, but nothing like that…goodness.

  3. Wonderful flowers Scott, Beautifully captured, especially that third one – what pink flower is that, please?

    June 7, 2012 at 8:17 am

    • Thank you, Victoria…and the third one looks and smells like Lilac…. Maybe someone can provide a more accurate answer, but I believe that’s what it is. I’m glad you like them. 🙂

  4. Stunning! Oh how I love the pink flowers. Mind, you I detest the color pink, and yet you made me fall in love with that beautiful shot, so that’s quite an achievement there 😀

    • Well thank you, Face…I’m happy you like it in spite of disliking the color. 🙂

  5. The third one is of lilacs and the fourth is a redbud tree. And they are all beautiful!

    • You’re welcome, Erica…does it sound like you’re yearning for home? 🙂

      • We’ll, when I see photos like these, yes. I’ve been away so long that I forget about the beautiful nature in the Northwest. Always nice to browse through your blog.

  7. Lovely colours Scott – it’s a wonderful time of the year.

    • It is a wonderful time of year, Finn…thank you. 🙂

  8. Are these current? If they are, it puts you several weeks behind our blooming cycle. Interesting. And the photos are lovely, as usual.

    As for the lilacs…. Latvians have this tradition that’s somewhat like looking for a four-leaf clover. Most lilac blossoms have four petals, but every once in awhile you’ll find one with five petals. These are considered lucky. The hybrids with the double sets of petals don’t count.

    • No, they’re not really current, Gunta…the most recent one is probably the very last one of the single yellow flower…probably at least three weeks old by now and the other ones aged by a few more weeks.

      I was going to offer to find some Latvian luck on my Lilac bush, but the flowers are all gone already, even though it bloomed about three to four weeks after the ones in downtown SLC…will have to remember next spring. 🙂

    Spectacular colors… thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you, David…and you’re welcome.

  11. A delightful post, Scott. The colors are so beautiful. There is something especially calming to my brain and eyes about the first photograph: the light and composition are just right. 🙂

    • I’m glad you like it, Melanie…if I remember correctly, the sun was still behind the buildings downtown, so it was just the morning glow lighting the tree and blossoms on that first one. Thank you for your nice words. 🙂

  12. Beautiful colours, Scott. Love the Plum? Blossom and the Lilac particularly. We are getting a battering in the UK from driving rain and high winds – it’s not doing the garden much good.

    • Thank you, Andy…and yes, I’ve heard that you guys are getting quite a lashing over there…maybe it’ll be done soon.
