Finally, more walking pics...part 1

The bridge over Flat Creek near the memorial gardens leads to several trails.

These days I take the road more traveled, staying close to the creekbed and not climbing the more exciting trails that might lead to vistas on higher mountains.

A new bush (to me) has some exotic looking blooms on it.

Flowers are about 4 inches across, with gorgeous coloring in the center.  Sorry for blur.

And then I cam to another bush with similar blooms, this time in orangish pink.

Again, the blooms look to be about 3-4 inches wide.  And these are bushes that already stand about 3 feet tall.

My friends who I consulted say they are Bittersweet.  Mmm, can't wait to see the berries in the fall!

More blossoms from this walk tomorrow.

    1. Just opening the windows gives a sense of no longer being closed in.

    1. I wish you'd been able to enjoy them with me...since I've lost most of my sense of smell I didn't even catch a whiff of the Honeysuckles, sigh.

    1. Well, moving and producing pottery does keep you a bit busy I imagine!

    1. Doesn't look like pictures of anything that's been suggested so far. 3" blooms don't match the ones of spice bushes on line. But maybe a variation. Another horticultuist said maybe Fringe Tree...also looks like much smaller flowers.

  6. All these photos are very pretty Barbara. I love the dappled sunlight on the flowers, ones I don't think I have ever seen before.
