That’s one huge flower …
I’m just imagining more, in different colours …
Happy First Day of Summer!
I’m so excited! Can’t believe that the weather is actually warming up! No rain! And we’re getting temperatures higher than 75 degrees a few days at a time!
Here’s some flowers for you that I found, wandering around the hotel during our soccer tournament last weekend. The boys were running around playing tag or man-hunt, or some such thing, and I wanted to keep an eye on them for a while.
So I took pictures of the flowers so that they wouldn’t notice me watching them.
Perfect cover, right? None of them paid me any attention …
I think we’re off on another busy weekend trip. Hopefully I’ll have some time to blog more .. I really should use this scheduling posts feature … or blog on the go …
In the meantime, enjoy the flowers, the hot sun, and the beginning of summer!
My new colour palette and flower obsession for this visit.
I call it the Iris Orchid, because the colours reminded me of the iris flower that I had taken a photo (at right) of some years back. I do see some similarities to the orchid. As usual, I didn’t look for the name plate that would identify this orchid. I’m getting bad at this, but then my focus wasn’t exactly on the scientific names of the orchids. I was just there to enjoy their beauty!
I wish there was an image search capability – for example, where I can show Google a picture and ask it to come up with the name?
At the Farmer’s Market over the weekend, I was met with a table full of potted flowers. Of course I had to stop and take pictures! Need you ask?
It was refreshing for my eyes to see splashes of colour everywhere.
‘You’re having fun, aren’t you?’, said one lady to me as she passed behind me while I contorted to get a better angle.
‘I bet you’re going to end up buying one of those pots’, said another.
And of course there’s always one flower that would catch my eyes and fascinate me.
This must be a type of daisy? (I really should read those labels so I’ll know what I’m talking about!) But look at those colours – red in front, light green in the back. I didn’t want to disturb its pose, so I tried to zoom in from where I was standing.
I really need to work on my own garden and try to grow flowers and vegetables. Perhaps we’ll try again this year. Maybe I’ll have a green thumb this year …
