Urban Blooms

Red / purple flowers

I have lived in cities my whole life.  One of the things I like about cities is how people try to incorporate plant life and blooms within the concrete jungle.  I want to say these are exclusively spring blooms, but we have nice enough weather year round that there is always something growing.  I forget just how pretty my graduate school tries to keep the grounds.  We actually have a eucalyptus grove, a path of olive trees, orange trees, and a turtle pond, all on campus!  It's the small things in life, you know? 


  1. Oh, pretty! My favourite blooms are jacaranda blooms that just show up so unashamedly purple around the city and suburbs haha.

  2. Beautiful flowers! :) I just moved to center city Philadelphia from rural North Carolina, and I've been pleasantly surprised to see how many plants and flowers there are in the city!


  3. WOOOOOOW!!! just came to your blog and the first thing i see is the stunning pop of colour from those floral beauties!! Love your photography, you've captured it perfectly. Thank you x

  4. These pictures are all so pretty! I spend nearly all my time in the city, so seeing occasional pops of colour around always makes my day :)

  5. I love that the flowers are all blooming now! We have a ton of cherry blossoms on my campus, and I see them everyday in between classes (:

  8. These are such lovely photos. I love this time of year when flowers are starting to bloom and where there was no colour before, there's vibrant coloured flowers now! Such a happy time of the year. We have daffodils appearing in front of our house at the moment and it makes me so happy to see them!
