More Flowers

I am still working on pictures taken at the end of July.
Here is another set taken at the Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg.

One of the attractions in this park is a Conservatory.Many tropical plants are grown in this place and also beautiful flowers.I found this lovely Begonia and knew that I had to get a picture of it.
Those colours are so vibrant,almost like a sunset.


One room in the Conservatory has a variety of uses. The day I was there it looked like they were set up for a wedding celebration. Now that would be the place to get married.I love the lovely greenery all around.It is quite an intimate setting,with room for only a few people.


In another area of the park,of course are the English Gardens,and you all know I love visiting them.
My Purple Coneflowers did not do well this year,but the ones in the Gardens are gorgeous.


The Butterflies seemed to agree with me and were busy feeding among them.


A few steps from the above picture,I saw these Hydrangeas.The sun illuminated  them just right.It doesn't seem to matter how often I visit these Gardens,I always find some more beauty to photograph.


The thought I have for today is as much directed to me as anyone else,perhaps more so.

When you choose to worry,you are choosing not to trust God.

  5. The colors and detail in all the photos are incredible! I can't believe that sunset begonia! What a gorgeous place to have an intimate ceremony! That white Hydrangea is purity itself! There is always more of God's beauty to photograph, isn't there!

  20. Beautiful photos. I'd love to visit there sometime! Your thought for today hit home with me...I'm such a worrier, and I don't know why, because I know very well God is in control. My family is going through some tough medical problems right now. Please pray for us.

  23. That first flower has such beautiful layers of color. I love the changes in each row of petals. And the Red Admiral sitting on the cone flowers is a lovely shot! I love hydrangeas of all kinds. That one is certainly beautiful. This place is really wonderful!
