This past weekend the hubby and I were out and about with a family function, so of course, I had my camera. I just can't walk anywhere without taking a picture of any flower I see. This one above was a single gladiolus stalk that was in front of a restaurant in Hamilton, NJ. This single bloom was gorgeous and as you can see against the blue sky, the color was very striking. I personal love this flower but sadly many of our customers won't let us use them in our design work. :(
flora culture variety meant for cutting. :(
Once again, we are back at the restaurant and this tiny little purple flower was so pretty that I had to squat down and take a picture. This bloom probably only measured 1/2" across but the close up is just to pretty to pass up.
Do you ever see flowers while you are out and about? Grab a camera or your cell phone and snap a photo. You never know when you might want to gaze upon their beauty later!!
