TODAY'S FLOWERS # 81

I don't know what kind of plant/flower this is.


The snow-covered 'ground' surrounding it, is actually the water of a large pond covered in ice.

  23. This is a lovely little find here and capture in the ice Denise! It's like saying (here I am) ha!
    Hey, thanks for your sweet comments. I just realized the post you wrote concerning the tsunami is in my draft..(I do that sometimes) I feel some of the older archive pictures will do better justice if I take the negatives and have them burned on a disk)..my goal!! So thank you; looks like we're in the clear! Close call as the earthquake in 1960 generated an awful disaster here- completely bending parking meters!! I so appreciate your visit and concern!! Big hug and blessings! Regina-
