First, let me wish everyone a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I’m linking this to Cee’s Flower of the Day!
I’m really feeling the end of spring and summer and the arrival of winter. I know and expect the seasons to change. Why, the changing seasons is the one thing I kept saying I missed the whole time I lived in Florida. Now, springtime was amazing here. Summer was fantastic here. Even Fall was beautiful — even though I knew what it was ushering in! And now they’ve disappeared. So, now that Christmas is over, bring on the Spring and Summer! But since I must be patient, I’m posting some of the flowers we have enjoyed at our new home over the past spring and summer seasons.
Although we haven’t yet gotten into the really cold and snowy days yet (coming soon, I’m sure), all the plants and trees around me are dormant (look dead) and I really miss the beauty (and the warmth) of spring, summer, and fall. So, to bring a little sunshine into this new year, I’m posting a bunch of the flowers we discovered here at our new house this past year. I have no idea what most of them are called. If anyone feels so inclined to enlighten me, please feel free to do so! 🙂
iPhriday is a day to share photos you have taken with your cell phone.
I ran across this photo challenge on another blog I follow and it looks like fun so I thought I’d participate with some new hibiscus in our yard this morning!
And the following is just for fun. I was playing around on Ribbet!
