Mosaic Monday - Early Spring in Yunnan

It is early spring there in Yunnan, China and the flowers that were evident were those in pots. Indoors, in hotel foyers, even the camellia plants were brought in for display, in huge pots. Other plants like the narcissus and belladonna lilies looked so lovely in their oriental blue and white porcelain pots. Outdoors, in the parks and temple grounds, pansies, daisies,  and other spring flowers were arranged in their pots as landscaped flowers.Only the hardier varieties like calla lilies and cabbage flowers were planted on the ground.

Hope these images of early spring blooms bring a warm feeling into your hearts.

  1. what a glorious collection of colourful flowers. Spring is such a wonderful time. Here we have had a long dry summer and are looking forward to some winter rains.
    Thankyou for sharing and have a wonderful week.

  2. I really got a smile with all this color. The cabbages looked so happy all lined up.

  3. @ life images by Jill - Thank you Jill, did you know that this place, Kunming where the flowers were photographed is a place you would like? It is called Spring City because it is spring all year round there!

    @ gwgt - Yes, they do look like smiling faces, haha.
