That first orange flower is really striking. I wonder what it's called.

Such lovely colors.
Sunny :)


A lovely series of flowers, but the first one has a really wonderful color!

Have a nice Sunday and week my friend!

AL said...

Nice flowers but I like the first and the second photos, the color looks very happy!

Nance said...

I love all of 'em! I love the softness look of the whitish/yellowish one and the vivid color of the rest. Nice shots, Denise!

guild-rez said...

I loved your photos, Denise! Can I copy the 7th and 8th? Had only seen in Christmas arrangements. If so let me know here on the blog.

Thank you, dear, have a great week.

Cezar and Léia said...

Lui said...

Gorgeous surprises on your walk. Thanks for making us walk with you and see these delights! And oh, I'm walking with my flower dog Bogart!

Happily Retired Gal said...

Aw ... now these are familiar blossoms (since I live along the coast in Southern California). I'm glad you had a chance to visit. I dropped by to let you know I've left you a little something at Sacred Ruminations.
Hugs and blessings,

Rosamaria said...

Thank you, dear, for letting me take your photos, you made me happy.

Titania said...

Very pretty wild flowers, love especially the golden, Californian poppy.

Denise said...

Kay, I loved that little orange flower too. I think it is a poppy, not 100 percent sure though as they are different from the poppies am used to.

Sunny, thank you.

Valkyrien, thank you and happy Sunday to you too.

Al, I like that, 'happy flowers', what a lovely thing to say.

Nance, thank you.

Guild-rez, thanks Gisela, I thought that little green bug was so interesting. I have never seen one of those before, not that I have noticed here in Virginia anyhow. Maybe I ought to start looking in earnest.

Carver, thank you, it was a lovely walk and not just for flowers, but for animals, birds, ocean views, everything. I will always remember it with great pleasure.

Yogi, thank you.

I-Beati, thanks Sandy.

Rosamaria, how kind of you to ask. I am delighted you would like to copy those flowers and I feel honored. Please copy any you wish to.

Léia, thank you. Nature gives us so many beautiful things doesn't it?

Lui, I am very happy you came on the walk with us, Bogart too :)

Happily Retired Gal, your California wildflowers are fantastic. How kind of you to leave something at your blog. I will visit as soon as I can.

RosaMaria, hello again. Knowing my flowers makes you happy makes me very happy. You are so very welcome.

Titania, thank you and thank you so much for identifying the Golden California Poppy.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

Your lucky to have those flowers. The California Poppy is a personal favorite.

Jacqui said...

What great flowers. That orange is just so - orangey. I enjoyed catching up with your week - those jellyfish pictures were stunning and your seal adventure was pretty exciting.

Stine in Ontario said...

The flowers of California are so pretty, Denise!

#3 is my favourite of the series, no idea what it is though?

These are wonderful, as ever.

Eve said...

Are you traveling again Denise!!! I can't keep up with you!!! hahaha I love the orange monarda (bee balm) at least thats what it looks like. And my favorite picture is of you way below with the wind and rain whipping your hair! Wow hold on, don't blow away!!!

Jama said...

The flowers are so gorgeous, I just can't decide which photo I like best.

Gill, thank you. I'm going to have to do a little research on that flower you mentioned.

Sandy, thank you.

Eve, yes we did a little traveling. I'm a noman at heart. I'll have to look up the orange monarda. Thanks for identifying it for me. Can always count on you. Yes, that rainy, windy picture is one of Gregg's favorites too. I thanked him greatly for taking it ;)

Jama, I too couldn't decide. That's why I always seem to post so many.

Msdewberry, thank you, I loved those colors too and as you say, very fall like.
