Neapolitan Spring

If you take a look at the CDPB portal you will notice it right away: Spring has sprung! We are regailed with splendid photos of apple blossoms, cherry trees, redbuds and tulips.

Since South Florida enjoys summerlike weather all year long, it is a bit of a challenge to find some legitimate signs of Spring. But I did! This African Tulip tree is in bloom right now...

and the Tabebuia chrysantha (not a Yellow Poinciana!) beckons under its shady canopy.

more tomorrow...

These are wonderful blossoms, Isabella. I especially enjoyed the vivid, deep reds. Visit my blog for my version of spring in Minnesota.

Wow, that is some tulip tree. What magnificant blossoms. We can see a tennis match here taking place at Key Biscane. Everyone looks really really hot.

It isn't spring everywhere, you know? (said in my best "snippety" voice).
Some of us do things differently.
We prefer to be obtuse and to do things from another angle down here.
We have ... ummm.....autumny stuff.....like....pumpkins?

The colors are wonderful but it isn't Spring everywhere, here in Maldives it summer all year

We haven't sprung yet. We might be stretching. Nice photography Isabella.

I am not up to normal yet, so am only trying to pop in here and there. As I get better I will try to get back on schedule.

Spring flowers all over the blogs at the moment! (I don't see much of autumn colours at the moment, especially as Nathalie left Australia.)

magnifique cet éclat de couleurs. Pas encore comme cela a Evry. Bon Weekend

This magnificent brilliance of colors. Not as Evry. Good Weekend

Hi Isabella! Here I am for my at least weekly visit...
Neapolitan Spring is surely nice, but with 29º Celsius here today, no one can complain... ;)
Big Al is incredibly big; the closest I've been to them was in Everglades and Pantanal, but maybe not so close... ;))
The «Poisson d'Avril» was cute!
Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter, where I’m still strolling around Bilbao (not yet the Guggen, though...). Look forward to reading you back there!
Have a great weekend!

Love the poinciana tree - it's shape, set against the palm. Not so sure about the colours in the first photo - orange and pink? you can tell I'm spoiled, can't you? Yet I love those amazing tulip tree blossoms and what stunning palms in the background. What's the name of those palms, Isabella?

You have obviously conspired here in DPblogs just for teasing me, haven`t you - with all those wonderful flowers, what you have taken in your garden or your city garden or your nature . . .
But I will come after few weeks and show to you, you will see!!

Have a happy weekend with your flowers :))

I wish you a creative weekend and come to see my SKYWATCH Friday:)

Wow! Those redish orange blooms are certainly vibrant and unusual! Isn't it great to enjoy summer and spring all year long?!

Lessie said...

And I thought we had blooms! Whew!
