Blue Ridge Blooms


These are various flowers we encountered during our travels through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Other than the Rhododendrons and Foxgloves, I couldn't tell you the names of the other blooms.

You never disappoint, Brian! These are just beautiful! That yellow one looks like a Japanese Iris - and possibly another iris and some lilies in the mix. Gorgeous!

A riot of color! How beautiful! I love that foxglove in particular.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They're all magic, what ever their names are! Wonderful. The yellow ones look like wild iris.

Pamela Gordon said...

I love the foxgloves photo! Something about the perfect pink symetry. The others are pretty too. ;)

Rohrerbot said...

I love all the little freckles of the blooms. The foxglove is gorgeous!

Faye said...

I think I may smell honeysuckle in the last photo. But on the other hand may just be another rhody? In England they grow a rhody that gardeners call "smelly yellers". Don't know if they've made it to the mountains yet.

Olga said...
