Nature’s Show-Offs


I love flowers. Their beauty delights and astounds me. It seems that almost every week at our home new flowers take their turn in the spotlight. The top two images are of the plant whose blossoms are on center stage this week. The red duo in the third image are hinting at the coming attraction for next week, and the last image was actually of a plant’s crimson explosion we enjoyed when leaving a restaurant.

With Love,

We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.

    Those first plants, we can only buy sometimes in a pot, they don’t grow in our climate. It is amazing to see them outside! They are all beautiful!
