Let's go to Lowe's!

So today I thought I would show you something different than succulents. I know I'm sorry if you are disappointed but sometimes you have to do something different. You know, spice things up. Haha! Well I guess I am exaggerating about that point. But back in March I went to Lowe's to get some palm and cactus potting soil. I also wanted to see if they had any succulents yet. You know me always looking for what I don't have. And the flowers were gorgeous. So I had to take some pictures. Thank goodness I had my camera in my purse and there was sun. One problem though....I didn't get the name of most of them. So I bet you gardeners out there will be able to tell me.


Mellow Yellow

This was such a bright yellow and I love how the petals looked so
soft laying on top of each other. I think this is a rununculus.


Quit pushing

Now I did get the name of these! English Daisy's.


Playin

Everything was just so bright and beautiful I couldn't stop taking pictures!


I Have a Secret

Taking this macro I got pollen on my camera lens. Geez! Thank goodness
I carry a lens brush with me.


Check Me Out

I think these last few are different kinds of poppy. Not sure though.
Well it never fails I start a post and it takes me days to finish. So here you go.
Hope you like!

It's Another Beautiful Day

Let's hear it for stealth retail photography! It's one reason why I try to carry my little camera everywhere I go. Also, I sometimes find that if I can at least take a picture of something, I don't feel like I have to buy it.

Sometimes, that is.
