Flower Power

The Power of Flowers! We were out for a walk this afternoon and there were many different kinds of flowers around to enjoy. I love all the diverse bright colours. Don't ask me what they are called because I don't know that much about their names. Ask @dswigle, she is a pro!

The bokeh effect on the second picture is astonishing. I don't know how that was achieved, maybe it's the lens or maybe the focus, it's beautiful. But it's the first time you're taking a shot of flowers that I've seen.

Thanks, the bokeh wasn’t intentional, but I love how it turned out.

I had to look up what bokeh means. I took a few photos in the past with that effect, without even knowing it. Probably many people did the same.

The first is one of my favorites! They reseed themselves all season long! They are Gaillardia (in the Southwest, they called them Blanket Flowers) They are a giver! You should get some for your yard!

The next one is a Hanging Jew. Much as they have tried to go away from that nickname, it still sticks. Its real name is Tradescantia.

The yellow is a Dahlia Peony (although I am not sure of the exact one. I think Bishop something.

The last is the reliable petunia, a tried and true friend.

That should do it, and it is always fun to work my brain a bit! Hello, Dave! @daveks Happy Canada Day!! I hope you are ready for the weekend!

These flowers are so beautiful. I so much love the last one. I love how colorful it looks especially with those little touches of lemon green.
