Flowers + Santa Monica, CA



I think flowers bring joy to so many people.
Just plop them in water + watch the joy they bring!

Hydrangeas & roses are one of my favorites.

Isn't this green color divine?
You can change the color on some hydrangeas by putting iron in the soil.

We don't grow peonies in Southern CA.

 I buy them at the flower mart in Los Angeles when I can.  



Santa Monica pier


Speaking of Los Angeles, this was taken on Monday of this week.
How blessed are we to experience such glorious weather?
Yes, we are blessed.






Look at this view-  the Santa Monica beach & Ocean Ave.  






These palm trees remind me of ladies with fabulous hair standing up tall. 






It was such a clear and beautiful day.
Just look at that blue sky.

I had to share this with you, dear readers...



Thanks for stopping by!




Love,



Peggy

  4. Can you imagine all the home decor magazine photos without flowers? Would look so sterile and lifeless. Beautiful images, Peggy. It's getting cold in DC, and I'm wishing I was in Southern Cal :) x Loi
