    Cool pics, Paul.

    I haven't had time to photo the spring blooms here yet. Our bleeding heart is so pretty too.

    Beautiful Paul, the spring bulbs are the only thing I miss about living up north. Our amaryllis are just starting to bloom. They are the limit of our spring bulbs

    Cool

    Those are wonderful, Lina.

    Here are some point and shoot shots from my place here in Arkansas. Nothing as beautiful as the ones posted. You guys make me want to get my good camera out and go photograph some blooms.

    These are Bleeding Hearts
