Prafrance 2015 : blooms blooms blooms !
Here comes the second set of photos taken on our day trip to Prafrance. (botanical garden specialized in bamboos) First I showed you the bamboos, but today I'm sharing photos of some of the flowers, shrubs & trees in bloom when we visited !
ornamental cherry tree blooms, with bamboos in the background
here's a pink variety of camellia ... so pretty !
not sure which kind of tree it was, but it was loaded with flowers e-ve-ry-where !!! Bees were pretty busy ! (can you spot it ?)
some type of small irises spotted by the greenhouses ... I usually don't like irises, but this one was so special !
wisteria was in full bloom, as you can see above & below ...
now a red variety of camellia ... and another busy bee !
wisteria behind the greenhouses
this very special tree is named Davidia involucrata (dove tree or handkerchief tree / arbre aux mouchoirs)
I couldn't resist taking a photo of hubby taking a photo of this huge pink shrub of rhododendrons !

I had brought my macro lens only so this explains that I have close ups or really framed photos. I couldn't get wide angle photos with it. But most of the time, that's the way I prefer to take photos.
I hope you liked this set as much as I like taking these photos ! Have a great rest of your day !
