Spring Blossoms are the Sweetest

I live in Reno, Nevada, and when spring comes to this area the flowers start blooming. This area may be a desert, but people's gardens still overflow with beautiful and colorful blossoms that I can't resist taking a picture of.

So sit back and enjoy some beautiful spring flower images. Spring will be here soon.

White Lily Blooms

These lilies were lovely, but they were sure difficult to get a picture of since they were so gleaming white the sun reflected off them. Luckily I walked by quite often and got this less-gleaming image here.

Willow and Spring Blooming Flowers

This little place was in a relatively barren section of the neighborhood, but these people brightened it up by planting their tiny yard with a pretty weeping willow tree and several types of flowers. It was such a nice sight to see on my walks.

Daffodil Blossom

Daffodils are my favorite flowers. I love the detailed, perfection of its petals and the way they seem to always be happy.

Blue Skies and Blooming Tree

This tree grows along the alley near my old apartment. I loved the way its white petals would sprinkle everywhere, adding tiny pieces of natural confetti upon the ground below.

So often we forget to look up and see what's above us, but the blooming tree pulled my eyes up in time to spot the interesting juxtaposition of blossoming tree, fluffy clouds, and straight power lines.

Hyacinths smell great, so even though they aren't my favorite flower, I grow them frequently just to enjoy their scent.

The ladybugs loved the blooming trees near my old apartment nearly as much as I did. Every so often I'd go out and see their gleaming bodies all over the tree checking out all the blossoms.

I love daffodils, including these pretty white ones. They look especially lovely set off by the dandelion flower next to them.

Is it a weed if it's growing in the perfect spot?

This lovely tree blooms in the springtime in a park along the riverside. I loved the way the shining white blooms stood out against the blue skies.

This weed plant near my apartment in Midtown Reno is climbing skyhigh to get into the sunlight the other weeds were obscuring. Its little flower looks like a sun gleaming over the plant.

A neighboring business, a photography studio has bushes of lilac blooming in their yard. In this shot, the lilac flowers hadn't quite gotten to the opening point, and shine like little grapes on the bush. Later the flowers produce a wonderful fragrance.

Rain Dampened Tulip Blossom

As the sky drizzled on my walk, I spotted this creamy beauty taking it all in. This tulip seems to love its bath and the rinsing of its leaves. The rain made a little puddle inside the cup of the flower.

Taking a walk one day I spotted a neighbor's tulip blooming for all its worth and looking down inside noticed how striking it was. I love the bits of pollen in the cup.

While this big lavender bush was blooming the bees were very happy to come pollinate it. I captured this one perching on a lavender blossom.

Tulips

On a rainy day in spring, I took a walk through the neighborhood and spotted these beautiful tulips blooming in the dampness. The pink and green really shinned in the rainy weather and made the entire corner brighter.

Weed Flowers

These tiny yellow flowers topped each weed plant outside my apartment in Midtown Reno. Though weeds aren't much to look at, they are pretty in their own way and the flowers are neat.

California Poppies in Downtown Reno

These flowers bloom each spring along the edge of the Pioneer Center in downtown Reno. I'm rather partial to California poppies since I'm from California and it is the state flower.

I loved the way the rain pooled up inside this tulip blossom.
