(Day 41) Flowers in February !

Where I live, the only living flowers in February are found indoors. So it's a wonderful experience to be in a climate, even for just a short time, where flowers can flourish outdoors throughout the year. I found the one in the photo posted below on a tree I was sitting under while waiting at a park. I haven't determined yet what type of tree it was, but the flower caught my eye. Perhaps people who live in a climate where this is a normal occurrence in February don't take particular notice; sometimes we can take the beauty that surrounds us for granted.

Beautiful. They have flowers just like that in Mexico except they are perfectly round! Was going to take a photo but I didn't follow 'ABC' :(

Flowers! In FEBRUARY! That's the craziest thing I've ever heard. ;o)

This is a wonderful shot, I like what you've done with the DOF. It makes the bloom look that much... spikier!

Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday and for the comment! I'm looking forward to perusing your blog a bit more too. :o)

There is a learning garden off of the raod that you are by and maybe you can find out what type of tree that is. lol

Ah, yes I agree! We often times take the beauty that surrounds us for granted.
