Smoke tree blossoms~Today's Flowers 062710

The smoke trees here in our valley are blooming right now and I stopped one afternoon last week to take some photos of them. The usually-gray trees and now covered with dark blue flowers. And, these flowers attract hundreds of bees! I could hardly get close enough to take the close-up photos! ACK! As I recall, they do not bloom for very long, so I'm glad I stopped to take these pics.

Red and Orange Bird of Paradise and blue sky~Sky Watch Friday 062510

These flowers aren't in my garden. While I DO have some, they aren't blooming right now. These belong to a neighbor and while I was out and around the other day, I stopped to take some pics of them. Aren't they pretty against our blue sky? SkyWatch Friday for June 25, 2010.
