TODAY'S FLOWERS # 105

When we were in Seattle we caught the ferry over to Bainbridge Island, and I found all these beautiful flowers around the parking lot of a pretty church.










TODAY’S FLOWER’S was created by our good friend Luiz Santilli Jr.

  23. I'm particularly intrigued by the first photo. Could that be a lady bug in the center of the photo? Or even perhaps a tiny petal from a red blossom of some sort, maybe lantana? Keep up the good work. It's always a joy to visit your site.

  27. I am especially interested in that last yellow flower, with its drooping trumpets. I've never seen it before. This world is so filled with beautiful and marvelous things!

  28. So beautiful. I really like those spidery looking daisies. I saw some up the street I am going to have to go out and photograph. The neighbors have adjusted, now, to seeing me taking pictures of their yards!
