Chinese Hibiscus

I’ve simply called this flower a hibiscus but apparently it has a grander name…”Chinese Hibiscus”…the leaf of this plant is lovely in it’s own right!flower.2016

Hibiscus…

I think…if this is not a Hibiscus please let me know?   A knowledgeable fellow explained this is a specie of Bauhinia, common called an “orchid tree.”  Thank you Russel at russelrayphotos2.com

laying down…

this particular Bougainvillea tree is on the property of the condo we rented in Key West this year.   It has grown terribly out of shape, completely bending over, and yet it continues to thrive.   As you can see it is lifting the interlocking brick as it grows.   tree.key.west.2015t to thrive.

hanging in there…

I took this photo last week…while the flowers aren’t anything special I couldn’t resist as these hardy flowers are holding on regardless of the onset of fall!   Having said that two days later we had snow, it is gone now but was cold for a few days…not sure how these flowers fared?

I’ve never been a fan of yellow…never, but I recently saw photos of a wedding and the flowers, bridesmaid dress, etc., was yellow…I have to admit it was beautiful.  So in honor of yellow…

lovely…

When I went for a walk yesterday morning I spotted this in my neighbor’s garden, lovely fuchsia peonies…I noticed today the rest of the buds have opened, but I didn’t have my camera or phone with me…I may go back and take a few photos.

I love tulips…wish we were able to enjoy them longer, the petals on these were already beginning to pull apart…

cobalt blue & pine trees…

this is one of my neighbors garden areas, a bit of a hodge podge, but I’m fond of the cobalt blue flowers.  I’m hoping to be able to do some planting this year?!

this photo is one that I took from my moving vehicle, I rather liked the scene…I know it is a bit blurry but I think it looks like a painting rather than a photo…

both…b & w & c

I love flowers, but I’m partial to specific colors, such as purple/mauve and white…maybe that is why I like black & white so much?

By the way…it is snowing here again, we are supposed to get between 10 and 15 cen…or between 4 to 6 inches!  Hence the flowers!
