February Flowers

In honor of Leap Year 2016, I’m sharing some of the amazing flowers I’ve been seeing around my neighborhood this month.

Since this is the first time in my life I’ve started paying much attention to flowers, I had to do quite a bit of internet research, trying to ID each one.  Thanks to Google and the awesome Wildflower Identification Guide, I think I’ve done surprisingly well, although some of the seemingly common wildflowers are still in my “mystery” category.

  1. Beautiful photos and I can relate to being busy by searching for the name of the flowers ☺. I love the Poppy and the purple Hibiscus is amazing! I have a yellow one in my archive and some other more common colours but never saw a purple one. Thanks for sharing!
