taken not from hand picked garden, but hand picked florist!
So to start you off.. I will take you out to Oro Valley, Arizona as we walk out of my parents house down the street.
Even Beach Baby Cricket loves this view!
Here is another view of those same mountains, Santa Catalina
(see..they even pick a spot that incorporates my name...)
their area is nestled beneath these beauties.
Now some of the pretties we saw out there.
Yes. This is real. Those are the REAL colors. No editing here.
Right in Luda's back yard.
These she has in bunches in all sorts of clay or terra cotta pots.
And this is right off the ledge by the pool area.
This one is on the side of the house in some sort of garden she attempted
to remind her of the East Coast.
And now this last one for Arizona...
Well... I'm just glad I don't have to worry about them here!
Yeh... not my fav. but it came out cool.
So we journey back to the see sawing Jersey side...
Now Cricket will have to have credit for this one.
And I will for these, before the little Rebel and his croonies ripped them all out of my yard!
A pick for my Dad.
Wishing him better health,
And to let him know I love him
I hope you enjoyed my nature walk across the country.... I am linking up with Tracie at Fish Tail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursdays. And
Trish from Pink Preppy Lily Lover for
Pink and Green Thursdays. Pop and in drool over all the beauties!
