More photo challenges! This time I’m combining two different challenges into one because they are very similar. I love photos with color in them and I especially like photographing colorful plants and flowers. I decided to use mostly newer photos with the exception of the Chihuly ceiling in the lobby of the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas. It goes nicely with the Chihuly yellow “ball” (I am not sure what its actual name is so I’ve named it a ball) that hangs in the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Most of these are flowers but there is one very colorful dessert: red velvet cake. It was almost too pretty to eat! The bouganvillea and hibiscus were photographed in Santa Monica, CA on our trip there last fall. The orchids are from the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory in St. Paul, MN.
One last item. For the CBBH photo challenge I’m linking two blogs that I’ve commented on in the last month. I’ve been enjoying travel posts at Displaced Beach Bums. I found this one during one of my not so regular searches for blogs about Málaga. This Beach Bum is quite the traveler and I’ve only just scratched the surface of her blog. So many blogs, so little time. But I’ve loved every post I’ve looked at so far. Do have a look!
The Travel Wench is a blog I just started following. Prompted by her following my blog, I had a quick look and another kindred traveler! Oh boy! She has quite the bucket list too, go and have a look. I’m going to show her Málaga one day :)
