(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Freesias

Make Time for Small Reflections
Click for Ruby Tuesday
I'm grateful to Patty of Magpie's Nest for identifying these lovely bulb blossoms as Freesia. They've come up yearly in my front yard for a while now, but I'd forgotten what they were called.

Freesia is one of m favorite scents, but until I saw your pictures I never realized I had never seen the flower! They are lovely. I may have to try and plant some.

Jackie said...

Oh these are just beautiful. I also like your presentation very much. It's very creative.

I owe you an apology. I had a nasty comment come in and while I was in the process of deleting it..I inadvertently deleted your comment too.

As a matter of fact I lost 12 comments. But, I saw your name at Dora's and remembered it.

Thank goodness I felt terrible about it getting deleted.

Now I will go visit your Ruby Tuesday too. Once again I am heart sick that your comment got lost.

As for the others I guess I am just going to have to try to visit as many people as possible tonight and tomorrow and hope I can find them!!

Happy WW:-)

Mojo said...

A reminder to be patient... spring is, in fact, on its way.

Nice collection!

Shangrila said...

How pretty! I've always loved the smell of freesia shampoo, but had never seen the flower! You've made me anxious for spring and my tulips! Happy WW!

Gattina said...
