Flower Overload, Part 1

Guys, I have SO MANY flower pictures I want to show you. I’ve been taking pictures by the hundreds, and I can’t keep up with posting them! If spring goes on much longer, I’m seriously going to wear out my camera or something. XD But I can’t help it. I LOVE SPRING! 😀

Since I don’t want to bore you to sleep, I decided to divide my boatload of pictures into bite-sized servings. (Well more like large-mouthful-sized servings. XD )

Now, onwards! 😀

My grandparents have this huge flower in their flowerbed, and it does NOT smell good, let me tell you. XD It smells like a dead animal. O.o I’m not sure what it’s called though. *Update* Clara says that this is a carrion flower. Thanks, Clara!

P. S. And now a word from our sponsors. XD Not really. But I do have some reminders/updates/announcement thingies. Ahem.

  1. Oh oh oh! *raises hand to answer question* I read about that flower in my school! It is a very large flower, but stinks. It attracts flies as well, but the name slipped my mind. All those flowers are VERY pretty! I love the tree peony!

    1. Lovely photos! Okay, this sounds really weird, but the ‘smelly flower’ reminds me of the flowers in spongebob! XD LOL I can’t believe that’s what I thought of. 😛The peony and bleeding hearts were my favs. 😉

  2. OH! SO PRETTY! 😮
    I love all these flowers pictures! The redbuds are my favorite- we have some of those here! 😉
    Oooh! Oooh! That flower is called a Carrion flower! It’s very smelly, as you may know. XD
    Thanks so much for mentioning my tutorial, Allison! 🙂

    1. Thank you very much, Clara! I’m glad you liked them! Ooh, thanks! I thought it might be, but I looked it up, and the pictures didn’t seem quite right… but maybe it is after all! Yes, blech. XD You’re very welcome, Clara. 🙂 Thanks for commenting!

      1. You’re welcome!
        Yep, I looked it up too, but then I saw on the Wikipedia page that there’s a smaller kind that people can grow in the northeast. 😉
        No problem!

  3. The little blue-ish purple flower looks kind of like a wild geranium. We have a ton of them at our house right now.

  4. I love flowers too, Allison! I like taking pictures of them, and I also like looking at your pictures of flowers. 😉 They’re just so pretty!
    Unfortunately, we don’t have a whole lot of flowers around here, but we do have a dogwood tree(I just learned what it was from this post), and I took pictures of the flowers on that. 🙂
    Anyway, I especially like your pictures of the redbud tree blossoms. They’re so pretty! Though it’s really strange that they have flowers on their trunks.

    1. Yes! Thank you so much! Ooh, that’s neat that you learned what a flower was called from this post. 🙂 Yep, it is so weird and pretty about the redbuds. XD
      P. S. You know how in my survey you said you wished we could talk sometime? Well, you can send me an email through the Contact Me page, and we can chat through that if you’d like!

      1. Yeah, it is! 🙂 I don’t know a lot of names of flowers, plants, and trees, so I always like to learn about them. 🙂

        P.S. I don’t actually recall saying that in my survey response(did I? I really don’t remember), but whether I did or didn’t, I really would enjoy emailing you! I just might do that sometime. 🙂

        1. Yeah!
          P. S. Oh, woopsie-daisy! Sorry about that! That was actually someone else who said they were a Christian, home-schooled girl, so I guess I thought, “Christian Homeschooler.” XD But yeah, I would still love to hear from you! Sorry about the mix-up. :/
