Early Spring Flowers in East Texas

The weather in Nacogdoches is a comfortable 70 degrees, and the early Spring flowers are starting to bloom. My area is well known for the Azaleas, but we have so much more than that.

I’m not 100% sure on what each flower is, but I think the pictures above are a pear type of flower.

 

As I was walking my dog through my neighborhood, my eyes were drawn to a bright yellow burst of color from a distance. As I got closer the sweet aroma just pulled me over. I think this is a Forsythia bush. The pics I found online weren’t exactly like mine, but pretty close.

Whatever they are, they are so pretty and smell soooo good.

I feel pretty confident that this one is a Texas Redbud. They show up early and the purple pops beautifully against all the deep greens.

Flowers can be hard to photograph, but it’s a challenge that’s always a lot of fun to tackle. I love to watch them change throughout the season and enjoy their pleasing aroma.

I don’t know if I can choose a favorite because I love them all, but roses and tulips are high up on the list. What are your favorite flowers?
