Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.   Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

I came across some printed photographs the other day and thought, “Where are these?”  I checked my external drive – couldn’t find them, checked the hard drive on my PC, couldn’t find him – ditto with my laptop hard drive.  Finally found a DVD I had burned the pics too, and transferred them to my external.  *shew*  Wonder how many more pictures I need to transfer!  One of my biggest fears is losing pictures!

These were taken Mother’s Day, 2008 in Dallas at the Texas Discovery Gardens.  I don’t know what kind of flowers most of these are, but if you know, I’d love for you to tell me!

See the Spider?

The fountains

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

  1. So, dear readers, I have conferred with green-thumb-type people, and I’ve done some image searches on Google to find out what kind of flowers these might be.
    1. A Japanese Lily (?) – I haven’t found an exact match in my image searches, but it does look similar to some I found.
    2. A type of carnation – I think it’s a carnation poppy.
    3. Day Lily
    4. Spider on unidentified leaf
    5. Fountain (these last two are pretty obvious – I didn’t even need help!) 🙂
    6. Zinnia
    7. Butterfly
    8. Ladybug
    9. Butterfly on Lantana
    10. Echinacea
    11. Russian Sage (?)
    12. White Passion Flower
    13. Blue Passion Flower

  2. What a wonderful collection of summertime flowers! I love how most of them have busy insects somewhere on them.

    The 9th photo down is a lantana…Mom, Granny and your Mum all have some planted. The one after that is (I believe) a purple cone flower…but I’m not positive. That’s about all I know. 🙂 Miss

  4. They are so pretty! That last flower is very unusual looking. I don’t know what any of them are, but I like how you got so many insects in the photos too.

    • Thanks, Alyce. My mom would probably know every single flower, I’ll have to ask her! I love finding “extras” in my nature photos! 🙂

      I loved your raindrop covered rose as well.
