I've always liked Queen Anne's Lace.
Crepe Myrtle isn't native but was brought to the US in 1950 from Japan. It tolerates cold and grows in zones 6-11. It looks like you live in one of those. They grow very tall and can be trained to have only 3 main branches and resemble a tree more.
I don't think your pink flowers is one because it has several flower spikes on each stem. I will let you know if I run across it somewhere.

There truly is an amazing amount of beauty around us, I agree. All we have to do is open our eyes, right? These photos are great reminders. ;-)

Very nice shots Paulie...I especially like the onion flower as there is nothing in the background to distract from it.

Yes; it is everywhere we look for it.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
