Today's Flowers - 04-13-09


Well, it's spring and the flowers are bursting open everywhere I look. So here's a new weekly meme just for the flowers! Today's Flowers hosts can be found here.




This was taken a couple of weeks ago, rather than today. The Ribes sanguineum or red-flowering currant is just about done blooming now. This rufous hummingbird came by several times a day to dine on the good stuff.

Great shot of flowers and bird! (I did see the flowers :))

Great capture. Hummingbirds are wonderful, and challenging, subjects.

What a wonderful photograph. That hummingbird is a lovely addition, though the flowers alone would make this shot. The two together? Fantastic!!!! Thank you for sharing.

The red-flowering currant is gorgeous! I wish it were a hardier plant so I could grow it.
