flower fireworks

I love flowers, their color, their various shapes. This one reminded me of fireworks. We made it to September with some heat, fortunately, it’s cooling off this week in Colorado.

striped cana

Strips get me every time and the touch of an out of focus pink flower just added to the mandala. From a fun garden tour fund raiser. Enjoy!


The Nicotiana flower is from the tobacco plant. I bought this one when I was taking a class on fragrant plants this spring. This big plant smells wonderful – the sent has been bred out of the smaller versions! The long tubular flowers made interesting patterns.


Not a flower, but long line of train cars on side of the road. Liked the pattern that formed. Was on my way to Palmer Lake for art show when I saw this, train cars, ground, sky and a telephone pole!


It’s a little hard to ‘read’ as a columbine. The shape reminds me of a fancy butterfly, I just need to draw in some antenna and eyes.


Here’s hoping for clouds this afternoon to cool off a very warm day! Love clouds and taking pictures of them – there are never 2 alike.

trail of light

Trails of light made by the fireworks create some interesting images and patterns. I liked the faint red white and blue color.

4th of july

Needed some Red White and Blue, the giant flag at 6th Ave and I-25 provided the color. Hope everyone had a good 4th.

show at tri-lakes

The show at the Tri-Lakes Art Center will be up for viewing July 2 until August 23, 2019. The Center is located at 305 Hwy 105 in the town of Palmer Lake, CO. A reception will be held Friday July 12 from 6 pm until 8 pm. There is a section “For the Love of Andi” honoring my friend Andi Sahlen’s photography. She was my photo buddy. We went to the Denver Botanic Gardens many times to take pictures of the flowers. She will be missed.
