Today the letter X is for Xanthic yellow, which is a very beautiful color. I love Spanish broom and how fragrant it smells when I am hiking along a trail, and here is a photograph I took of one such shrub.
Today the letter O is for open spaces because I am continuing to share the photographs I took on my hike up in the San Bernardino Mountains. Personally, I enjoy nature since I grew up in the mountains, and it is comforting to see trees, rocks, wild flowers, chaparral, and other plant and animal life can be found out in the open during a hike.
D is for daisies that I see during my walks. Actually, lately I have been bicycling down a local trail where these daisies are blooming, but I still have time to stop and photograph these. The bold and inviting colors are quite refreshing to see on a spring day, and I will never grow tired of seeing daisies.
I enjoy the vibrant hue of orange and yellow daisies, and look forward to seeing these pleasant flowers each day. What is your favorite flower to photograph?
Here is a video I created of the orange and yellow daisies I spotted the other day. These flowers remind me of a sunburst with their profusion of joyful color. If you have not figured out anything about me thus far, one thing I will share is that I love bright colors.
White morning glory flowers look tranquil blowing in the wind.
During the month of August I have been enjoying a profusion of color with many different shades morning glories from blue-violet, magenta, light blue, and white. I planted a few seeds from a dollar package of mixed colored morning glories, and I have to say with daily watering this has been a great investment with the beauty these flowers provide each morning when I wake up.
Morning glories are resplendent and vibrant on the vine.
Get up early in the morning, and you get to look upon these blooms that are divine.
Every morning I enjoy getting up and looking at the magnificent morning glory blooms. It is one of my favorite rituals these days, but you have to catch these flowers before noon!
I have a special place for morning morning glories in my heart. I created a painting back in October of 2010 of a little gray cat sitting next to a morning glory flower, which is based on a photograph I took of morning glories planted in my mom’s garden up in the San Bernardino Mountains. Actually, I wish I had taken a picture of Buster dog standing next to the morning glories over ten years ago because this was the fondest memory that I ever had of these flowers. Maybe someday I will also paint a picture of Buster next to a morning glory, but for the present I enjoy photographing these blooms. Over the years I have taken many pictures of morning glories.
Many green worms have been chewing on the morning glory plant this summer, so I am glad the flowers were able to bloom.
The other day I took a photograph of roses in the late afternoon.
Here is another photograph that I took, which features two roses
In this photograph I was looking down on some lovely pink roses.
The roses are in various phases of the blooming cycle.
This rosebud is a crown glory, and makes us ordinary floral lovers feel like royalty just by gazing at it.
This pink beauty is a rose worth waiting for.
