I have to admit, I’ve seen these flowers for years and never knew what they were called…Ginger flower.
I’ve been absent for awhile now, life happens…I hope to be around now!
I’m trying out a new theme, but not sure it is what I want as I can’t seem to make the photos larger to fill more of the page? Will be playing around for the next little while so if you come by and see something unusual it is because I’m playing.
When I went out a couple of weeks ago it was just as the sun had set and the sky was awash with the most vibrant colors, I’d gotten out of the habit of keeping my camera in my vehicle but my trusty iPhone did the trick I think…
I was away in Florida for a month, this is my first post since I returned mid February…took this photo on the way to Key West.
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?
Fall is upon us here, the changing of the leaves are almost completed…I’ve glimpsed the process but not had much chance to photograph it this season. How about these for some color? I love cut flowers in my home, usually have a bouquet of something…right now it is a couple of the pumpkin arrangements, but they are wilting fast.
when your condo is facing west it is difficult not to be obsessed with sunsets or the after glow…here are two more photos…I particularly liked the contrast between the dark wispy cloud and the colorful one!
the only time I might see a sunrise is for nine weeks during the summer when I travel on Friday to Rosseau…we leave North Bay at 5:00am and this year we/ve seen a number of beautiful sunrises. My problem is I’m in the passenger seat and the sunrise is on the driver’s side…for the most part I can’t shoot around my daughter’s head! This past Friday I managed to capture a couple of weak shots of the end of the sunrise around her head!
a little farther down the road was foggy and the colors were pale pink!
Most of us aren’t a fan of Dandelions, myself included, but they do look pretty and delicate just before they get blown all over…this lovely flower is one from a bush in my next door neighbors front yard…I don’t think it is as sharp as it could be due to the fact it was swaying a bit in the breeze when I was taking the photo…I couldn’t resist!
on Saturday after the Market I took a few more photos besides the Chief Commanda II…some of them were of the lovely tulips along the water front. It was a warm sunny day on Saturday, since then the warmth and sun have been simply a memory…as we get further into summer here I’m hoping to be able to take more shots of flowers…I don’t have any in my yard right now as the landscaping is being done…I don’t have much of a green thumb so it will be simple, with flowers that grow like weeds!
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…
