What's bloomin'?

.
Strange flowers, no?

Trees and flowers are in full bloom.

Spring has sprung, and soon the holidays will be here too.

What a beautyful flower. I have never seen this one in Holland...
Do you see them a lot in Jerusalem ?

London Caller said...

That's a type of Grevillea.
Also known as Spider flower.

They look unusual, not sure I've seen them before

Dina said...

Shalom friends. This is the first time I see this. It's in the garden of my friends here in the Jerusalem Hills.
Spider flower? That makes sense, the name, thanks.

Can`t wait to see the blooming in Israel!:-)

Spider flowers must fit me very much! hehe

Francisca said...

A blossom with character, for sure. Spider flower would be a good name. Are you doing anything special for the holiday, Dina? I'll go spend a week near Vienna.

Thank you. Please have a good Thursday.

I'd love to know what the first flower is that you've posted. Any ideas? I just went to the New York Botanical Gardens Annual Orchid show and WOW, the varieties of orchids I've never know.

Kay said...

That is an unusual plant, but very beautiful! Happy spring to you, Dina!

VP said...

I would really like to know more about flowers...

Dina said...

Suzanne, says it is a type of Grevillea, also known as Spider flower. Sounds good to me.
I don't know many flower names in any language.

Francisca, a week in Vienna sounds good. Mit Schlag, whipped cream?
The week of Pesach there are many guided tours here, so I'll go on some. And the seder is Monday night.

Beautiful. The thin branches in the second picture remind me a bit of the impressionists.
