Bursting with Blooms (iPhriday)

From the glorious bouquet Hubby sent me for my birthday back in July, this flower is determined to survive as long as flowery possible. There are four of them sitting on my bathroom shelf, greeting me each day with a steely determination!

For Lisa’s iPhriday, where each Friday we have the opportunity to share shots from our smartphones – whichever that might be!

iPhriday!

 

 

 

Blue Ginger (iPhriday)

There is just something so captivating about the vibrancy in the colour of the Blue Ginger plant. It makes quite the statement, particularly with its large glossy green leaves.

This plant is purely ornamental though and rightly so with its striking blooms. There won’t be any meals with these ginger roots!

For Lisa’s iPhriday, where each Friday we have the opportunity to share shots from our smartphones – love it!

Morning at the Marina (MM2-15)

 

Wow, with summer now here and summer vacation just weeks away for us, it’s incredible how quickly the weeks are already flying by. Almost time to begin thinking about Christmas cards, lol!

Until then though, time for another Monochrome Madness from Leanne Cole Photography and once again, here’s another I’ve my rejects from her water themed week at the beginning of the month.

Morning at the Marina MM15

The resort we stayed at may not have been all that salubrious, but waking up to this each morning in Ucluelet more than made up for this. And although not crystal clear reflections, I still like the “feel” this image portrays.

What I particularly like though with converting this photo to black and white, it disguises the hideous bright red coke machine that resort across the water has near its front door. Of all the places why there I wonder.

Polar Bears and Snow Flakes brought me to tears!
