Photography of Wisteria Flowers in Bloom

Wisteria in Bloom

Magnolia in Bloom

Violet in Bloom

The backyard is a great place to take some photos of Spring in action.  I took these photos last night after I got home from work and it shows the color of Spring can be found just about everywhere right now.  The fist shot is the bud stem of the Wisteria plant which is almost as prevalent around here as Kudzu.  You can click on the larger size of the Wisteria and see it is covered in yellow pollen from the pine trees which is covering just about everything right now.

The next is a bloom from a Magnolia tree (a southern Magnolia I believe, not the traditional large thick green leaved trees), and the last is a violet (weed).  The violets are everywhere this year but they are so small if you don’t look closely you might miss them altogether.  They are about the size of a pencil eraser at most, and are usually considered to be weeds.

The Magnolia tree is interesting… one of the early bloomers of Spring, it produces these large white flowers before it grows any leaves at all and doesn’t bloom again until next February.  Right now it has exploded in bloom and the very center of the flower has a beautiful yellow and red center (shown below) which is also smaller than the size of a pencil eraser (very small).
