Trying to brighten the day for those people isolated indoors during the Covid-19 pandemic. A slight change today. One picture of a walking route and …
Today’s Pictures: 16 June 20
While this first photo is lovely, be sure to see the second photo in this set. Thank you, Stuart. 🙂
Lilacs are such common, and, some may say, old-fashioned, flowers.
I think they’re lovely. And the scent! Heavenly. Especially after a rain.
Happy Friday to you! Here in Canada it’s a long weekend, but we won’t be doing anything much except continuing to relearn our appreciation for the simple things.
I hope your week is bright …
… and pink. 🙂
It’s really white around here still, so I’m throwing down a little colour.
I found this lush and verdant golden pothos growing its way up a palm tree and thought it would make a nice view for today.
Happy Monday, everyone. 🙂
Jill Weatherholt and I have been following each other for about seven years now. She’s strong and kind and lovely and a published author. You can visit her site at
She’s also an orchid whisperer. She keeps orchids in her office and they love her as much as she loves them. There’s lots of growing and blooming.
So when I saw this delicate light green orchid, I immediately thought of Jill. I don’t know what it’s called, but to me it’s Jill’s Orchid.
Here’s a flower for your Friday. I hope you have a good weekend. 🙂
I will be travelling soon and while I’ll still be checking in with my blogging friends, it may not be very regularly for the next couple of weeks.
Hello, little yellow one! 🙂
I found this bright yellow flower among the masses of snow-on-the-mountain. Isn’t it pretty? I saw it in the corner only after I had taken the photo.
The lovely, the different, creeps into our lives in unexpected, silent ways, and it’s up to us to pay attention and honour the visit.
I think these lovely flowers are miniature petunias, but I’m not sure.
Aren’t they pretty?
So fresh and bright. 🙂
The towering hibiscus bushes are in full bloom right now. Many of them are three metres (10 feet) or more tall.
Originally from Korea, and in fact the national flower of Korea, these bushes are now a part of many gardens and parks here in the Okanagan.
In the United States they are known as Rose of Sharon, but they aren’t related to roses at all. Frilly and pretty, they add a lovely blowsy richness to the landscape.
Happy Thursday from the flowering hibiscus of the Okanagan Valley. 🙂
