Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid…flower power

For a challenge theme of “Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid“, my thoughts flew immediately to the Chihuly installation last year at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.  But as I scrolled through my photos while sitting in a motel in Edgemont, South Dakota, rain bucketing down outside, I came across this photo from the Naperville farmer’s market a few years ago.  The vivid colors lifted my spirits and provided a brilliant counterpoint to the darkness of the thunderstorm outside.  May they bring joy to you as well.  Of course, I should add the “warning” that I had to use last week:  I’m on very, very limited internet access right now (mostly out of contact except for evenings).  But next week I’ll be back online, able to access and enjoy the many marvelous versions of “Vivid” as well as the many excellent posts you’ve produced. In the meantime, have a vividly beautiful weekend!


How annoying!  I originally had the links to all my Chihuly posts and now they’re gone.  Well, here I am, on the internet for a few minutes, and I’m going to put them back in.  Take that, WordPress!

  2. Oh they are delightful.
    I love spring!
    Happy Weekend Janet

    • Thanks and the same to you! I’m hoping now that the rain stops before my husband starts on his bike ride in the morning. We drove about 15 hours and through three states to get here, so I hope he’ll be able to do it!

    I love the colors and the happy-squished feeling of these vibrant blooms…

  4. ‘Flower power’ – love the header! You’re so right – they lift the spirits. Must admit though too also admiring Chihuly’ s marvellous creations 🙂

  10. Beautiful – reminds me of Pike’s Market in Seattle. 🙂

    • Haven’t been to Pike Place Market for many years, but I have great memories of it. I’m happy that the markets in Naperville opened this month, even though we’re not there this weekend to go.


  11. So beautiful vivid colours

  12. Ooooooooh Gorgeous!!! I do love sunflowers!

  14. Chihuly is amazing (you MUST visit his glass garden and collection museum in Seattle… and meet me for lunch!), but this shot is gorgeous, Janet! The composition and colors are indeed cheery and beautiful! Safe travels.
