Flower Friday

Happy Flower Friday




Today we are featuring Celosia Spicata and Bitty the Bumble Bee.
Celosia is derived from a Greek word meaning burned and refers to the flame like flower.

Mom says this is a 'timing photo'.  She saw it and  she had TIME to get the camera! There was no sun on it at the time but the flashy beast gave it a glow...

We call the next photo Lady Celosia. Mom loves this pot.
Mom says during all this hot humid weather her hair resembles 
Lady Celosia's


Our flower blooms in back where most of them live have about fizzled out due to 
the horrid heat in July.  Mom has heard photography is all about lighting and angles.  These next two (non flowering) photos are proof positive.
First one taken from the back of the plant with sun shining through the leaves.
 Second one taken from the front within a few seconds of the first.


Last up but surely not least.....
Moi, after all it is my blog!!

  3. Hey Mom, wrap that box up and send Madi over to me for a hug!

    Love the flowers. I have one that looks kinda like that. Except the flowers on mine are a small purple ball. Pretty. Love the hair on the lady pot.

    Happy weekend.

  4. MOL MOL on the drones eye view!!! love it... and the light always shocks me the difference in the photo just by changing were the camera views from..i did not know the name of this plant but did buy one a few years ago at the flea market. I loved it, hung it on the front porch and it quickly died. I like the HAIR on the planter.

  6. We love to see bumble bees! Once we had some of them living under our front step. They'd go in and out all day. But they never bothered anyone. They're free to come back any time!

  14. Ya know, Madi, sometimes it's nice to have that flashy beast pointed at other things. Flowers certainly come in handy.

  23. How pretty ! Dad was really sick yesterday with a bad cold so we didn't get a flower post up. (Mom was busy trying to make him feel more comfy after she got off work).

    Thanks for brightening our day!

  25. I love your flowers. We are still getting lots of blooms but most of our flowers love the heat. (They don't have much of a choice) we have also had a lot of rain this summer. I like your aerial shot.
