There are lots of flowers in this part of California and I see quite a few on my morning walks. Here’s one beauty that caught my attention.

There were quite a few of these in Wyoming this year and my PlantNet app identified them as Gunnison’s Mariposa Lily. I remember the name from the Black Canyon of the Gunnison in Colorado and Mariposa Gardens, the funeral home that handled my parents’ arrangements. But you can just call them beautiful.

According to my Pl@ntNet app, these are alpine daisies or if not, another sort of daisy even though we usually expect daisies to be white. But as a friend says, “You never know, you know.”

Alien invasion!

Once again it’s Friday and time for a flower photo. I took this photo in California where I was excited to be able to take some shots that included drops. Today in our part of Arizona it’s been threatening to rain and we’ve had a few measly attempts but nothing that adds up to much. However, the skies are still dark so we still have hope. Welcome to Friday and don’t forget to check your spam folder. I’ve had at somewhere between 75 and 100 today in total so far, none of them legitimate

While in California the last two weeks, I realized that while I’m there I’m taking photos almost exclusively of grandson, flowers, and doors. 🙂 I did get some of the ocean but somewhat tangentially. As I’ve mentioned before, the doors in Arizona are often purely practical doors designed to keep the sun’s very direct, hot, and harmful rays away from the inside door. It makes sense but doesn’t make for very interesting door photos. My family has gotten used to me stopping all the time for door and flower shots and are remarkably good about it, even holding my to-go cup when needed. 🙂

However, it’s Friday and that means doors were yesterday and flowers are today. How about some morning glories to start (or perhaps a much-needed jolt of happiness in) your day?

One of the non-family joys of a visit to southern California is the variety of vegetation, especially flowers. These coreopses brightened one of our recent walks. Welcome to Friday. I’m not at all sad to be missing almost-record high temperatures back home in Phoenix, soaring above 110 over the weekend!

Beach walks, reading time, good food, relaxing, family/grandson time. Life is good. I hope yours is too.

Spotted these on one of my morning walks. I like the color and the naturalness of the setting. If I seem inattentive today, it’s probably because my dad fell last night and is in the hospital so they can check whether he cracked or broke any ribs. So I imagine I’ll be a bit busy today. No, I don’t believe that Friday the 13th is bad luck. In fact, 13 was always my softball number and I consider Friday the 13th to be a lucky day. After all, his fall happened on the 12th. 🙂 A happy and blessed Friday and don’t forget to stop and enjoy the flowers. 🙂
