Today's flowers - Wild roses and chestnut trees



The first rose bushes are blooming in Vienna! White and yellow, surrounded by lush green!

On my picture, the chestnut trees are still blooming. But today's cold rain has washed down the petals.
The icemen are doing their best!


You find flowers from all around the world here:

We still have to wait a while for wild roses, but chestnuts trees are in bloom - they are so pretty!
I like your main photo very much.
Have a Nice Sundy:)

Your wild roses are beautiful! We have some in the woods behind our new cottage, but the centers don't have as vibrant a yellow color. I know you are enjoying all the springtime scenes after such a hard winter!

The wild roses are beautiful - ours are usually pink. Love the chestnut trees in bloom, too.

I have never seen white wild roses - ours are all pink, and will not even consider blooming for a few weeks yet! But the chestnut trees are about in the same stage! Lovely flowers, all!!

Que linda fartura de rosas! Formam um conjunto de rara beleza, fico imaginando o doce perfume...
As flores do castanheiro também são magníficas, sinto em não conhecê-lo, aqui no Rio de Janeiro faz muito calor, provalvelmente ele não toleraria o nosso clima.
Um grande abraço!

I love the wild roses. they fill the ditches along the country roads. Most are pink.
Our Chestnut tree was torn in half by a windstorm but is surviving. I saw some with red flowers--so unique.
Thanks for all your lovely pics. MB
