Alphabet - P

Well, I'm way behind, but Kira is even further behind. I have to admit she did have a good excuse...she worked the nine days preceeding her flight to Minnesota, and once she was here, she was going non stop up until I dropped her off at the airport yesterday afternoon. Once she got back to Arizona, she unpacked, rested and got ready to get up bright and early for work this morning. Yeah, I guess I'll cut her some slack

I took advantage of all the beautiful flowers in the Como Zoo Conservatory when we were there on Sunday and took pictures of all the Pink flowers for my letter P.

This is the kind of job I should have, I'm much better suited to being creative, like with gardening than running tests on blood all day long. Ah well, such is life!

I think this is a "new Gerbera Daisy'. I saw them at the farmer's market a few weeks ago and I don't remember ever seeing two toned before. I think I'll get some next year.

All of these roses



I love lilies, they're such a wonderful garden flower. They're easy to grow, bloom profusely, and last a long time. They also make wonderful cut flowers. Lilies are probably one of my favorite flowers...unfortunately, 
I HATE the smell of them, as they pretty much make me gag.

Again, a lily, water lily this time. Beautiful! Thank goodness they don't smell.

When my darling daughter gets her act together, visit her and see her alphabet.

Such pretty flowers. I don't know about lilies so much but there are indeed some flowers (flowering bushes, mostly) which I find too sickly sweet and they evoke the gag reflex. I can't say that I've ever even noticed much of a smell from my lilies .. which are orange Tiger lilies. All of your flowers are so lovely.

Well, I have O and P up, and the Q pic taken. I'm still trying to decide on what to do for R. If I had gotten the pi I took on your camera, I'd probably have something red to post. Oh well, all in time I suppose. I like all that pink!!
