Think Back Thursday: Flowers

This week's theme for Think Back Thursday is Flowers. Because April showers (last week's theme was Rain) bring May flowers. I used to chuckle at my aunts for taking pictures of flowers and gardens wherever they went, but once I got a digital camera I found myself a lot more willing to "waste" pictures on flowers! Of course I don't consider it a waste any more! Often these are the photos that will serve as my desktop wallpaper.

The first set are from my own yard. Despite my husband being a greenhouse manager, we do very little in the way of gardening ourselves. I'm not good at it and don't really like it - hey, I am All. About. Low/No Maintenance! And he doesn't have the time during the planting and growing seasons because he's busy at work. We do have some lovely flowering trees:


and lots of Black-eyed Susans, which are one of my favorites as well as being the state flower.
A couple summers ago I managed to get some pretty good pictures of the butterflies, moths, and bees enjoying some of our flowers.

Last summer our outdoor cactus flowered.
The flowers my hubby gave me for our 25th anniversary last summer:

These pictures are from a visit to the botanical gardens at Niagara Falls, Ontario in summer of 2008.

Kennady has been to a couple flower arranging classes sponsored by a gardening club at the library.. She has really enjoyed the couple times she's been able to go to one of these classes. This was the arrangement she made at one class.
And here she is with creations from another class.
