They both describe different degrees of beauty.

  • Bonito / Lindo = Cute / Pretty
  • Hermoso = Beautiful
  • Precioso = Very beautiful

Usage might differ, there are some cases in which Spanish uses bonito, but English uses 'beautiful', this mostly due to 'pretty' and 'cute' being either too feminine or endearing, (e.g. Quiero un carro bonito = I want a beautiful car).

'These are beautiful flowers' should be correct English too.

It is correct English, but not a correct translation.

  • Estas flores son hermosas = These flowers are beautiful
  • Estas son flores hermosas = These are beautiful flowers

In all fairness to Liz534, "Estas son flores hermosas" sounds unnatural in Spanish, I can't think of a situation in which I would use that phrasing.
