Carnaval of flowers – Hibiscus, Lily and Roses

Thursday Challenge – Flowers 

Flowers,one of  my favorite subjects. I just love the colors of this hibiscus. Spotted it in a garden while out walking. I’m calling it ‘carnaval’ it is such a beautiful mix of color.

The Lily

Another riot of color I enjoy in the garden is the Canna Lily, definitely a carnaval flower.  Vibrant, vivid, clear yellow with red spots,splotches, sometimes even a strip or two of dark red. It brightens up the garden so much when they are in bloom.

Carnaval of fragrant Roses

Rose bud – Fragrant Plum – Roses are my favorite flower

My favorite flowers of all time fragrant Roses. The perfume can be quite intoxicating, the form of  the roses can vary so much each season, and even each flower,  they intrigue me and bring so much pleasure.
