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.

You really have the gift of making all flowers look so incredible! The colors are truly striking. I love your sea gull photo, too.

What a colourful plethora of blooms you gathered for us! Love that light tangerine poppy-like flower the fan-shaped is so exquisite!

Very pretty flowers, indeed. I wonder how many hundreds (thousands?) of photos you took on your trip. It's delightful to go through them and relive the experience.

Kathy said...

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.

I can identify some of these flowers, but not all of them! I like the colours of the calendula, especially!

Craver Vii said...

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!

RNSANE said...

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!

At 65, I've done it! My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon!
