Flowers in 2011


The year in flowers, most of which can be found in our garden at the yellow house. From the old house are the magnolia seed pod and the Lady Banks roses.


The above gardenia, after a morning rain, is my favorite.

Next post I will share my best bird images, many of which are hummingbirds.

may joy and peace surround you
