Let's Stop and Enjoy The Flowers

.....before the madness of the Holiday Season is upon us. Yes, dear friends, it's August again. It's going to be all downhill from here and before we know it we are humming fa-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la again.

So let me show you some of the flower images I have captured so far. I've been taking quite a few flower pictures lately, which is like going back to the roots of this blog. You may remember that my first post(s) is about lilies.

The images were taken from different times and different locations in different weather. Enjoy. Looking at flowers makes me happy and lightens my burdens.

  4. Hi MRoy, as usual those are beautiful photos! Regarding your message in my post for me to ID these flowers, i am so sorry to disappoint you, as most plants i know are tropicals or those found here in the country. I am not giving justice to these if i do, as i might just be guessing from what i see in other blogs or from the net. Temperate climate plants which i see abroad look so fascinating for me so i've also asked other temperate country bloggers. Example was Wisteria which i saw in Sweden and Turkey, which took my fancy from then on. I am about to plant it here as i heard we have it, but learned it is quite invasive in the tropics, so i stopped. I posted my wisteria photos in previous posts. Am sorry again, if i know the plants i will tell you. Thanks for thinking i know them! haha!
