In The Gardens Of My Neighbors

Some favorites of mine from my friends' and neighbors' gardens and
 yards. I mentioned how hard it was for me to photograph white roses.
 I tried here. These are from a neighbor's garden. Sorry, I don't know
the name of the rose. I see these growning in many gardens here. I was
 lucky to be walking by and take these photos of these beautiful roses.
Isn't mother nature wonderful when she grows a natural bouquet like this?

This would make a great monogram 'C'
When I took these white rose photos it was 90 degrees with some humidity and sweat
was pouring down my face. The rose photos turned out because they were
 in the shade of trees.




These are itsy bitsy flowers that I blew up many times their original size. I thought they were sweet.




Pulmerias are popular to grow here. If it doesn't freeze they thrive and if it does
 they always seem to come back to life.
