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

Someone questioned me about the lack of snow…we have lots, but I’ve not been able to venture out to take photos , so for now I will post photos I’ve taken in the past few years. Some I’ve posted before, some I haven’t…

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.

 


green & white…

A couple of my favorites…

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?

yellow…

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!

I hope to take more photos tomorrow, but for now these are a couple more from the other day…this one was taken looking in the opposite direction from the ducks.  Off Silver Beach

waterfront.2.2013I love flowers and always make sure I’ve them in the house…I usually choose purples and white, while not my usual choice, these caught my eye…

buzzing around!

I was at the waterfront the other day and came upon this pretty pink flowered bush…I’m not up on my flowers so I don’t know what it is called…but the closer I got the more Bees I noticed…so I tried to get a few shots.   I have to say these fellows don’t stay in on position for more than a couple of seconds, it was very difficult to get photos…I’m sure the people walking by where wondering what I was doing?  these are three different Bees at three different bushes…in case you were wondering!

because it snowed!

When I looked out the window this morning it was snowing…I wasn’t happy as most of our snow was gone…I know it won’t last long, in fact a great deal of it is gone already…to counter act the snow affect, I thought I’d post things that make me happy…pretty flowers and part of the side garden path to condos in Truman Annex, Key West…

a gift to myself…

I love flowers, I usually have a bouquet of some kind in the house all the time, I love white flowers almost as much as I do shades of purple, while I enjoy all colours of flowers I prefer to stay with white for in the house, and ad accents, such as mauve & purple, or lime green, love lime green with white…I find those colours soothing to look at…I had a large bouquet this time so I put four in a tall bud vase…I know some would say there should be three or five, but four worked for me that day…

purpl.mauve.carnations.2013   this isn’t were they generally sit but I was trying to find a good light…this was the best I came up with at that time of the day, I see if I have time to experiment with the light before these flowers wilt.  this wasn’t the right angle either for the vase  but that’s fine for now…I know something is wrong with brightness of this one as well but not sure what to do to change it, is missing something???   hmmm…not my favourite photo

carnations4.2013again a different background and different light…I also used the bloom setting on this one, which I’ve not used before…gives an interesting look.

visions from my walks…

while I’m away I’ve gotten back into my walks…had to stop for awhile at home due to the terribly cold weather…here are three lovely flowers, unfortunately I don’t know their names…if anyone does please let me know!   a blogging friend of mine who takes many gorgeous photos of flowers said the first is a bougainville, the the 2nd, and 3rd are hibiscus…
