Fuchsias in Bloom

The flower that inspired a name for a color. The first two images were taken of a plant growing in a pot on a main road in Monterey, California. The third image is from the garden next door. Wherever they grow they provide a vibrant and eye-catching display.

Pink Roses Blooming

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”  William Shakespeare

Despite the persistent drought and the subsequent water restrictions the rose bushes continue to produce some lovely specimens. After trimming the pink one I was really happy to see the blooms appear.

Glamorous and Graceful Gladioli

The long elegant stems of these pink Gladioli were irresistible to me when I was out on a recent shopping trip.

To me they are the one flower that can instantly glam up an ordinary  corner in the house. Even as they bend the arching is so graceful it’s like watching a ballerina stretch.

Here are some pics of them.
