Flowers

In Livorno, Italy, VP takes a walk around town and shows three to five photos of things he saw that day.  Most of his pictures are pretty interesting.  
Here is my variation on a walk around town.  These are five pictures of flowers and plants that I probably wouldn't give their own day, but I liked them and wanted an excuse to show them here.
I have always liked daisies.  They are unpretentious.

Nice walk on the flowery side Jack, love the purple puff balls, the name of the yellow flowers in the last photo eludes me and it's driving me mad!

I love pictures of flowers. It's the second best thing next to seeing them in person. :)

I find walking through flowers to be peaceful and inspiring. Love the purple allium, one of my favorite. Wonderfully captured photos.

I like wild flowers. Daisies, poppies and some others. To see flowers is always a balm for the heart. In yiour first pic, I also noticed a lovely bench in the background, with two angels..

I like this idea of taking a walk and showing what you see. I did this one time a long time ago and had forgotten about it. You got some good photos from you walk!

What a nice collection of shots, Jack. I love the allium as we do not have that here. The intense purple is beautiful.

To Grace, these yellow flowers are daylillies.

Bises,

Flora galore. Hartford is a beautiful place! Merci!

Oh...and "great minds...";))

I think it should be a monthly theme "A walk around town," and that we can post up to five shots for that one. I really like what you saw.

Kate said...

I think I'll vote for the lilies.

A lovely tour, Jack. Was this a stroll through Elizabeth Park? Btw, I too am fond of flowers which are unpretentious.
