Imported Today's Flowers from Karaka Tree Motel

My 11th Entry

Thank you Luis Santilli Jr for creating Today's Flowers for us and your Team! Thank You Very Much!!!

To all the gardeners, horticulturists, and flower enthusiasts let's give Today's Flowers a big Hurray! It's time to visit Today's Flowers
and smell those sweet scented delights. TF Team on Board: Santilli - Denise - Pupo - Valkyrien

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay, "Afternoon on a Hill"

When I saw these orchids first time, I said to the owner, "are those orchids real?" Roger, the husband of Ann, replied, "yes, they are real."

"Well, they look plastic to me!" So I went near to touch it and they were real indeed! And Roger laughed. I took a close up or macro shot, but there's internal error that it can't be uploaded. So I hope this shot will do.

A bonus of beautiful clusters of Azaleas.

I don't know the name of these flowers. I just took it outside the Karaka Tree Motel where we stayed in Taupo, New Zealand recently.

Hi Bonnie, welcome back! I am sorry to hear about your pets and I know how you feel. I still grieve for the loss of my pet Scott, I still miss him. I am thankful that Coffee and Oreo came, they fill up my sadness over Scott.

Anyway, I like the colors of azaleas, hot pink! Good choice for today's flowers! Orchids sometimes looks artificial, it can trick us LOL. Thanks for the visit Bonnie.
