Red, White and Blue FLOWERS for the 4th of July

Happy 4th of July to all of my Blog Friends in the Good Ole USA today!!!!!  Hope you are having and have had a fantastic weekend --filled with lots of fun, family, friends, fellowship,  and food.

Today---in celebration of our colors,  I will share some red, white and blue flowers that have bloomed or are blooming in our yard this Spring/Summer.  Hope you enjoy seeing the 'patriotic' flowers today!

Here's a 'combo' for you which reminds me a little of fireworks.  This is LOLLYPOP LILY (taken on 6/2/16)

 A RED  Tulip  (taken on 4/13/16)

Beautiful TULIP (taken on 4/13/16)
I love this last picture when thinking about the 4th of July.  This sweet little tulip reminds me of FIREWORKS....

Hope you enjoyed my red/white/blue post today!!!!!  To be honest,  we have LOTS of reds and whites blooming most all spring and summer ---but we don't have too many BLUES... Blue flowers are not easy to find ---and as you can tell from my pictures,  the blue tends to become more purple than blue... BUT---I love purple and have lots of purple flowers....

Have an awesome day today ---and Happy Birthday AMERICA.
