Happy New Year! There aren’t any outdoor flowers in bloom where I am but here are some pictures from Kew Gardens I took a couple of years ago. It was a sunny day in May and I saw so many beautiful scenes like these.
This was a good choice for lunch.
It was a lovely day for flowers – I hope it isn’t long before spring is back!
Now that it’s November these should be the last of the outdoor flowers. It’s much colder and the leaves are turning beautiful colors. Here’s a picture of some mums I saw on a walk a couple of weeks ago. I hope it won’t be too long before the flowers are back again!
It’s starting to look and feel like autumn. The mornings are cooler and the breeze is chillier. Yesterday I went on a walk and saw lots of pumpkins. Under the bright sunshine you could even see their shadows.
As I continued my walk I saw pine cones on the ground and in trees.
Then I noticed these cute carved pumpkins that weren’t scary at all.
My favorite was this owl.
Going on a pumpkin (and pine cone) walk was lots of fun!
A visit to Lake Michigan on a sunny and windy afternoon was perfect for late September. Lots of people walked on the beach and the pier to the lighthouse. The spray from the waves got people (including me) a little wet!
This seagull disregards the sign.
It was a lovely day to spend at the beach while it is still warm…
There have been so many colorful flowers this summer I thought I’d share these pictures. Some are from my garden and others are from walks I’ve taken. It’s also been a wonderful year for hydrangeas – I’ve seen them with pink, blue and white blossoms. Flowers are part of what makes summer so memorable…
