Today's Flowers

There's a new feature that my friend Luiz Santilli Jr. is doing. It's called Today's Flowers. Check it out. These flowers are from a friend's front yard. I was waiting for the carpool, and I had the camera with me and... you know how it goes, right?

That Balloon Flower (I think) is terrific! Smart you to be waiting WITH a camera!

Very pretty! Always have a camera at hand; you never know what you will see.

Carletta said...

WOW! These are VERY nice. I like how the blue and yellow contrast with each other and they are my favorite (school) colors.
Well done my friend!

Sir Craver,

Thank you for the very kind comments. Sorry, the internet has been the last thing on my mind here in the Yukon - but I simply had to visit you today ....

Can see you're having great fun with that camera.

I haven't seen balloon flowers in a while. They come in other colours but I do like the blue the best of all. It looks really nice with that yellow daylily - a good colour combination!

(Btw, gave you a little tag, for better or worse. : )
