Hi Denise! I somehow lost track of you :( I know, I should have kept a closer eye on my reading list!!

Fabulous photos, Denise! The Gaura is so delicate and pretty.

Self Sagacity said...

I didn't know the cone flower was called double delight too? I have some, but known it as Double-Decker. I have a double delight rose, it is known for this name because of the fabulous fragrance. Good to know. :-)

Patty said...

Once again, beautiful flower photos. Hope you're having a great Sunday.

LivingSoAbundantly said...

I like the vivid colors in your photos. I especially like how the petal in your top picture is slightly folded back in one spot. That is great that your lens picks up such details. :)

Pat's Addition said...

Nice collection and totally identified!

jabblog said...

I love that double Echinacea - gorgeous colour, form - everything.

Enjoy your week, Denise:-)

Pat's Addition said...

How funny...bet you didn't have to ride the school bus to get there! (Our driver missed the turn, never been on a trip where they knew the route.}

Francisca said...

I enjoyed my our through your digital garden today. I must be missing home, Denise, because the soft yellow waterlily pulled me in the most.

Carver said...

These are all wonderful flowers. I love that variety of coneflower you started with. Sunflowers are always a delight to see and I also enjoyed the other flowers.

Francisca said...

Hi again, Denise. Thanks for both your comments. I know about not getting around as much as we would like, I certainly don't either, but I'm pleased you enjoy what you find on my blog. :-) Unfortunately, on this job I am in Romania without my honey; it's been our longest period of separation in 26 years, so while being here and the work I do are wonderful, I will be happy to go home in a few weeks. Thanks again.

Margaret Cloud said...

Beautiful pictures, you know I like the Thistle.

Jean said...

Very nice series of beautiful blooms. I like your "take" on them!
