In Your Face!!!

Me, me, me.  Look at me.  No, look at me.  Better yet, skip all those and look at me!  Walking through the Gardens at Waters East, one almost hears this constant refrain.  Every plant wants attention.  Every bloom is screaming – “I’m so beautiful just look at me!”  In many cases they are right.  Take a look at this Tardia plant.  Beautiful shade of yellow – and the detail inside the bloom.

Self centered though they may be, the flowers do make you stop and stare.  They seem to be doing “their thing” just for you.  So why not indulge them for a few moments while walking the paths.

Here then are photos for this posting
pause a moment - - - really slow down and pause a moment
see the detail


A little too close!

One final look.

NOTE:   Since this Blog is meant to be an accurate journal of the gardens;
no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.
What is posted – is what it here.  It is what it is.

  1. I love these cheery yellow flowers.If memory serves me right, they are Tulipa Tarda. Since you asked,I live in Manitoba Canada,only about 20 or so miles north of the US border.

  2. No flowers here yet.
    I don't think I've visited since I moved from coastal Dorset to urban West Yorkshire. I've a new blog too - because the two places are so different from each other.
    Here's a link to Loose and Leafy in Halifax.
