A Beautiful Photo of a Lotus

Flower gardens these days are not just about beds and potted plants.  A beautifully landscaped garden contains many elements, such as textures and levels. The addition of a pond is just one more and with that comes the introduction of a completely different type of flower — one more commonly found rooted in water than in soil.  For this #FloralFriday we offer this beautiful photo of a lotus as an example.

A Picutre of a Perky Purple Pansy

For me there have always been certain flowers that almost seem to have a personality. For example, the daisy is such a bright and sunny bloom that if flowers can be happy you know the daisy is as cheerful as they come. 

The pansy, on the other hand brings to mind for me a mischievous child, full of colour and vitality.  And in my case, as I've never successfully grown any in flowerbeds or pots,  a little hard to manage. 

Perhaps you too can see some of that personality in this photograph of a perky purple pansy.
