More Pretty Pictures

There is still too much hurt and ugliness happening. I am going to post some flower pictures so you have an alternative in your viewing. Some of these flowers are not the most perfect in structure. But isn't that part of the wonder and beauty of all nature, to understand that imperfections are an integral part of it?

Begonia Pink

Teddy Bear

Nasturtium Red

Begonia Red
This begonia looks much better when you click on it to enlarge it.

Dahlia Red

Nanina, thank you and you're welcome. :-)

Eclectic, I live in downtown where there's no yard at all. Of friend of mine lives closer to the lakeshore where I used to live. She can make anything grow. She would like that everyone enjoys her flowers. Thank you and you're welcome!

I'm glad you encouraged me to go to Flickr and look at the bigger versions, because the begonia is certainly beautiful enlarged.

I actually really like the last one too. The um, well (instead of looking up the name) the lavendar one. I particularly thought the fuschia colored streaks coming out from the center like little bursts of energy were very noteworthy.

Danielle, the small versions never do the flowers justice. But if I put them in large then they take up too much room. I really love Flickr. I had debated on whether to put up the picture of the rose of sharon because of the dead one I should have picked off first. But I'm glad I did and I'm so glad you like it. Thanks!

If nature didn't accept and/or embrace imperfection and deformity, I'd have been killed at birth. ;)

Mr B, sorry, didn't mean to kick up your allergies. Thanks!

Mowing the yard didn't help I'm afraid. Such is life.

Oh, poor Mr b, yeah mowing is pretty sucky for your allergies.

Oh--pretty flowers--brighten up any day!

Thanks Squirl!!

Oh--and I just found out that the bird I thought I was hearing every morning when I leave for work is actually a squirrel telling me off--it sounds so neat..I could have sworn it was a bird!

(my secret word has DQ in it--now I want some ice cream...)

Thank you and you're welcome. So it's a chattering squirrel that's greeting you in the morning. Now you're going to think of me every time you hear that little fellow, right? :-)

DQ, hm, mine looks like the name of a pharmaceutical: rxpefns
