Yesterday while in the Capital City, the weather humid but mostly sunny, we walked to dinner at a Mexican restaurant just south of the Capitol. Flowers seemed to leap out at the camera’s lens, a spectrum of colors covering the rainbow. The city really does now how to sport some bling.

A sampling:

red flower

A blazing red petunia makes a statement against a sea of pink.


Purple hydrangeas contrast sharply against the black wrought iron fence that keeps them from spilling onto the sidewalk.


A solitary hibiscus begs for the camera’s attention.


Brilliant pink lilies seem to hold hands and make the surrounding greenery all the greener.

night daisy

My very favorite flower, the simple daisy.
