More St. Thomas Flowers

Good morning,

No April Fool here today.  I always think of my Mom and her love for flowers on this day, though, since this was her birthday.  :) 

As regular readers know, I love flowers, too.  Flowers just jump into my camera wherever I happen to see them.
I captured these in my camera recently on another trip ashore in St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.
I was also playing with settings on my Canon 50 D camera.
These pretties remind me of little white stars.  Perhaps that is part of their name?
Finally, this blossom reminds me of those on the magnolia tree that should be blooming right now in my front yard back in Cincinnati.

Enjoy!

Lois

Enjoyed your beautiful flower pictures. My husband has been taking pictures of the flowers blooming in our yard now--I hope to get them on my blog soon. I have been busy with the crochet sweater for our daughter-in-law. I sure hope it is going to fit.
Love,
Marie
