Botanical Gardens: White & Yellow

I discovered a whole new definition of fall color today. The reds and golds of Michigan fall seem far away. I visited the Naples Botanical Gardens and wow is everything different from when I left last spring. The plants really enjoyed the summer rains and there were lots of blooming flowers. My photo snapping finger got some good exercise. My last post was a black & white so I have to ease my way back into color. Here is a selection of yellow and white..

  1. Such vibrant colors! They really stand out as we inch our way into November. It snowed more today (didn’t stick), and for Trick or Treat, we are going to be treated to thunderstorms and double-digit winds. Naples is sounding pretty good!

    • Gee whiz, Heather – you are getting it all. Sounds nasty. We have had a beautiful few days, but it is getting hot again – close to 90. I’ll keep giving you hot weather photos until we return in November. šŸ™‚

  2. Pat, I love your photographs, and while I don’t usually comment, I see them. The first one here is interesting. When I first saw it, I thought it was a table centerpiece. The green looks like textured place mats with the white flower just scattered there. I though it was lovely … as a table decoration! When I discovered that it is actually real, I was doubly delighted. Just wanted to tell you that your photography is fantastic. šŸ™‚

    • Wow, George, what a wonderful comment to read first thing in the morning. You made my day. šŸ™‚ The lily pads are especially pretty this year. I had fun photographing them with the lilies.

  3. Great photos, Pat…the yellow is so cheery! I like the second one with the bees…but for some reason I really like the half-yellow flower…some people don’t like “partial” images (my old boss said they drove her crazy), but I do. šŸ™‚
