MY SWEET HUBBY PICKED WILDFLOWERS FROM THE ROADSIDE AND BROUGHT THEM TO ME. HE KNOWS I LIKE TAKING PHOTOS OF FLOWERS. THIS IS QUEEN'S LACE IN WHICH I STUCK THE PURPLE FLOWER HE BROUGHT AND A PETAL FROM MY GERANIUMS. IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY THE CENTER OF THE PURPLE BLOOM LOOKS LIKE BLUE AND WHITE STRIPES. IT IS THE CLOSEST I COULD COME FOR A RED, WHITE, AND BLUE ARRANGEMENT FOR THE HOLIDAY. :)

That's a beautiful arrangement and sweet of your husband to pick them for you. I also went with red, white and blue this week. Happy Independence Day!

You're so patriotic! :) I thought I would be taking a photo of strawberries, blueberries and whipped topping, but the strawberry field was closed. :(

Mimi said...

It does indeed, Carletta!
Happy 4th to you too, have a lovely, happy day!

Lovely red, white and blue for the day Carletta. I have a rose called 4th. of July, silly me, this would have been the right time to post it. Rats! Maybe I'll remember next year.

Life Ramblings said...

Ralph said...

This is indeed a patriotic style, the flowers a perfect red-white-blue. The perfect floral complement to the always classic stars-and-stripes. Stunnig!

Leora said...

What a lovely, patriotic arrangement.

Felisol said...

Red, white and blue are the Norwegian flag colors too.
The white "stars" were beautifully enhancing the red and blue.
Great.
Happy belated Fourth of July.

Thank you so much for your kind words, and I'm glad that you liked my blog.

4th July is just an ordinary day in Denmark, but seeing your bouquet I was not in doubt which day it was.

Kind regards,

Your photography and processing just keeps getting better and better Carletta...it's a treat to view your work.

Raven said...

I've been a bad visitor. Enjoyed scrolling down through all these beautiful photos. I think the geraniums are my favorite but they are all so gorgeous... so why choose, why not just love them all.

Pagan Sphinx said...

You are an amazing photographer, my dear!

Did you change your format? I love the ability to post my pics very large. I've not regretted it, since I did it, even though I had to compromise my side-bar.

Carolyn Ford said...

What a beautiful picture! I would frame this one and hang it on my wall. You framed it so eloquently, too.
