Sunday Stills Challenge~Purple~091909

I found this purple bougenvilla at Target several years ago and planted it in my front yard on one of the posts on our porch. I didn't want the traditional hot pink one. I wanted a purple one, which is less common. It is beautiful here in the desert in the spring. Right now, it is resting after a long, hot summer, but next spring it will be back with its blossoms. Sunday Stills Challenge for September 19, 2009.

Today's Flowers~L.A. County Arboretum 090609

I grew up a block away from the back entrance to the Los Angeles County Arboretum and I visited it often as a child. I always loved the Queen Anne cottage and its carriage house and gardens. I took these photos a couple of years ago when, as an adult, I went back to visit the arboretum. Aren't the flowers gorgeous? Today's Flowers for Sunday, September 6, 2009.

"g" is for...ABC Wednesday 090209

"G" is for garden. This was my garden out in front of my house last spring. All is gone now, and I'm thinking about what to plant there soon. I'd like to put in some sweet peas, but behind them plant some sunflower seeds. And, of course, I'll plant African daisies again! ABC Wednesday for 090209
