Friday Flowers – in Pink

New Guinea Trumpet Vine

Jude’s month of pink is coming to a close today so I thought I would share some of the beautiful pinks from my last visit to the botanical garden before leaving Florida for Michigan. This New Guinea Trumpet Vine grows up the roof supports along the boardwalk into the garden. There is always something of interest along this walk so I usually need to stop for a few minutes to enjoy and see what I can capture with my camera.

But the next one is a favorite. Every time I’ve gone through this file I stop for a minute or two…

I was drawn to this waterlily because the sun’s rays was touching it just right as the sunlight was breaking through the bordering trees. On this particular morning I was following the gentle rays of the sun poking through here and there, not yet so bright it harshened up the shadows and washed out color. I did a little cropping and reduced highlights a touch – but all other post-processing didn’t have any value-added. As I cropped I noticed the hint of a reflection on the water at the bottom. That brings a smile to my heart.

Had to include some sweet memories – is that a touch of pink I see there? Do you think it will be enough pink to count on the very last day of April pinks? Jim and I split this scone and it was every bit as good as it looks. He took his half, the rest was mine. He was an engineer, so you would think he would be better at fractions, huh?

  1. The waterlily is a lovely shot. And the trumpet vine is pretty, but what grabbed my attention are those fabulous tulips! Such great colour combinations. Thank you for all your lovely pinks Pat. Hope to see you in May.
