In The Garden

"A flower's appeal is in its contradictions — so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance,
so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect."
- Terri Guillemets -

How about some photos of pretty flowers? Not that you have much choice. I've got a very busy day ahead and this is what I have to offer. I hope you enjoy 'cause there isn't anything else!













Have a beautiful day, everyone.

    1. That one is the Euphorbia polychroma. Quite popular. I swear when you look at it when it's just bloomed, you get dizzy! The yellow is very bright. Like neon.

  14. Beautiful captures, Martha! I especially love the second and second-to-last shots. My flower garden is in pretty much full color now--just waiting for the tiger lilies, and later the dahlias, to join in.
