Southern Manitoba is under a blizzard warning.
We are having snow,winds up to 60km/h or 35mph.Temperatures are dropping and are right now at −15C,or 7F. Visibility is way down and travel not recommended.
This is the kind of evening it is wonderful to be in a warm house,doing what I enjoy doing.
There you have the bad news,and it really is not that bad.
I do love winter and even a good blizzard,but I do long for some bright colours.
This is why I have decided to share some colourful summer blooms today.
The weather may be cold and blustery,but on my computer and now on yours,the flowers are blooming.
This bright Daylily,photographed at the English Gardens in Winnipeg,is sure to brighten any day.
A Daylily in purple. I would like to dedicate this flower to my dear friend Debbie who loves all things purple. I hope this brings a smile to your heart my friend.
These flowers were all photographed on the same day and in the same gardens.
I love the colors in this lily.I have lots of lilies in my garden,but very few that hang down like this.
I loved the way the sun is shinning through the petals on this one.I never take the time to find the names of each one,but to me this one looks like it could be in the same family as the Stargazer.What I do know for sure is that it is beautiful flower.
One more Daylily,this time in a beautiful shade of red. The gardens were being watered so this one still shows some water droplets on it. Looking at these flowers makes me wish for summer and more trips to Winnipeg to capture more images like this.
Thanks for taking a few minutes to walk through the flower garden with me. I enjoyed your company.
Matthew 6:28-29 - See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
