Cool Blues and Hot Pink

Four lovely images remaining, all are flowers and I have three blues and one pink. The pink easily holds it own – this is no passive pink!

Thanks to the photographers for granting permission to use their photos.

  1. Oh, how these pictures make me wish the flowers were in bloom here. Only tulips so far, but the lilacs are starting to bud. I can’t wait for all those nice sights and scents!

  2. Four beautiful photos of beautiful flowers. Benjamin quietly looked at each one for a bit of time and finally said : “Gem, I like pink and blue. They are pretty, but orange is the bestest!” However true, he still wants to go see the Blue-Footed Booby dancing again. Thank-you x 2!!
