My World #84: Flowers Make My World Pretty

23 Aug

August is almost over and I just realized that the flowers of spring and summer will soon wither to give way to the beautiful explosion of leafy reds and yellows.
So I had a thought. Why not share the few floral images I took during these seasons here.
“The Amen of nature is always a flower.” ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes.

Hope you stop and smell the flowers in YOUR WORLD.

    Love your first photo – maybe because I’m quite partial to little pansy flowers – great background too

    Great flower shots. They really make our world pretty. Love the angle of the first photo with the peek-a-boo bridge on top.

    The Pinoy festivals are really cool. Maybe next time, I will let you know if there’s a festival coming up. 🙂

    Love your worm’s eye view of THE BRIDGE across the pansies and borage to my way of thinking belongs in every self respecting garden.

    Beautiful! I’ve already felt a bit of autumn in the air – not today though – too bloody hot!

      who’s been asking for summer heat anyway? i was content on 70-degree summer all the way through fall.

    That first photo is beyond fantastic to me! I LOVE San Francisco. Was lucky to visit for the second time this past July and loved it even more than the first time. My step-daughter lives there and another daughter in Santa Barbara, so I’ll be going back lots!

    That is one of the best photos I’ve seen featuring the Golden Gate. Wonderful! Thank you!
