Spring Flowers

These pictures of spring flowers were taken at Rosetta McLain Gardens in Scarborough. It is a beautiful place to people watch (especially wedding parties having their photos taken), look out over the lake, or simply look at flowers – as the bench plate attests. Now that summer is here and the temperatures are soaring, it is nice to look back on lively rather than wilted flowers.

I love the texture of hostas. These lovely specimens were found at Rosetta McLain Gardens in Scarborough in May. I had to lie on the ground to get them – nobody seemed to blink an eye.
