bird of paradise flower

The bird of paradise flower has these beautiful long red stamen. A friend held up her blue purse to give me a background and 'Atomic Flower' is the result.

Blue Flax Forth

For about a month I was greeted with a bouquet of Flax Flowers right outside my back door, so had to take a picture of them. There is a little bit of red, white and a lot of blue in this mandala So thought it might be appropriate for the 4th of July posting. Enjoy the day!

honeysuckle words

Every so often I add words to my mandala. To the mantra in the honey suckle flowers I would add - Eat, Sleep, Garden and take pictures!

sunny daylily

I have always loved flowers. They are colorful and come in many, many shapes. I was out early one morning when I found this daylily opening. In it's sunshine shape it is appropriate for all the sunshine we are going to get this week, already in the 90s.

the display

This is one of the orchids I put out with the staghorn fern. After the blooms quit I un-potted it to find there were no viable roots, so we are hoping it will recover outside.
