TODAY'S FLOWERS

We returned from our vacation a week ago today. How quickly one settles back into routine. I have come down to earth and am enjoying being home, while remembering all the places and things we saw while away and looking at all the photos we took, I have lost count how many. These are some of them taken on a very wet day in Seattle. It poured pretty hard and I reveled in it. That city is beautiful in any weather. I was surprised to see all these pretty flowers still looking fresh and colorful. The fall colors on the trees were gorgeous. We had just finished visiting the Space Needle and the flower beds were outside the entrance.










TODAY’S FLOWER’S is a wonderful meme created by our good friend Luiz Santilli Jr. You can find beautiful and unusual flowers from all over the world by clicking here.

I have been there twice for a very short visit. I know the weather is perfect for those beautiful flowers to thrive. North of Seattle are tulip farms, I got to visit them and they were a sight. Colors as far as the eye could see. I wish our flowers here in GA looked like your pictures in the peak of season. Keep posting about your trip.

What a wonderfully colourfull array you bring us from so far away. Seatle is a very beautiful city, as is Vancouver with both the mountains and the sea. Hope you had the most wonderful holiday.

Welcome home Denise. I enjoyed the posts you created before you left and I am now anxious to hear all about your trip to the northwest.

I think that Jack and I must be fthe only folks who spent at least ten days in the northwest in 2007 and didn't once run into any rain!

I know it was a fluke of nature.

One thing about rain---the rainbows and flowers that follow the rain are so fresh and beautiful.

Looking forward to your next post about your trip.

I love it when my city looks good. We're in a very rainy session now, typical of November, and temps are in the 40's. The damp cold is bone chilling. And yet it is cloudy, damp days that offer the best photo conditions for things like flowers.
Nice job.

Denise: Nicely captured on this wet day adding beauty to the flowers.

diane said...
