floral cheer

With a good deal of reluctance, I allowed myself to be dragged from the crashing waves to check out the flower gardens….. I believe the above flower might be a freesia.‘Tis the season for dahlias….

Dahlias, dahlias everywhere….

There was also a display of orchids, but it was inside and quite crowded and rather dark, so I didn’t begin to do justice to these lovely specimens.

    • Thank you! Did you ever visit Shore Acres while you were here? It’s where the recent crashing waves were shot, plus they have some pretty impressive gardens, too. It’s just past Charleston. Oregon misses you, too!

  1. Sorry for the double comment. Our Internet here is sooooo slow. It takes me almost 5 minutes to download a post, and then the comment doesn’t want to go, so I try again, and then both suddenly appear. I’m going to bed. Had enough for one night 🙂

    • Thanks…. but my fav was the first, possibly because the dahlias are so common around here or because the color in the 2nd shot wasn’t quite the real deal. Haven’t quite figured out why the purple tones don’t come out quite true for me.
