These photos are of bell-shaped flowers from seasons past -- warmer and more colorful. I am especially fond of their shapes and apparently take a lot of photos that lean in that direction. Nice to look at in these winter days, so I'm posting these for Today's Flowers, a virtual flower shop hosted every Monday by Luiz, Denise Castro and Laerte Pupo. Stop by for a cheerful bouquet!
In contrast, a few not-so-colorful views of my world. Over the weekend we had a heat wave with melting temps up to 45 degrees. Today its just as bright and clear but with a forceful west wind, its feels like -14. Needless to say these snow people are leftover from our balmy weekend.
