Flower Overload, Part 2

(See part 1 here.) I’m ready to unload some more of my gazillions of flower pictures! (And I took even more today. *Sniff* Oh wait! That’s not sad, that’s good! XD )

First I’ll show you a photo I took today. We went hiking with my auntย who kindly offered to show us where some lady’s slippers were growing. (No, we didn’t take pictures of shoes growing out of the ground. XD Lady’s slippers are unusual, pretty, and rare flowers that grow in the woods. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ) We had lots of fun! I’ll devote a whole post to it later, but for now…

Lady’s slipper – or maybe a fairy slipper! ๐Ÿ™‚

And an edited version:

One day I just sat down and took lots of dandelion pictures. I just love the petal-design of the mature dandelion when all of the seeds have flown away.

Which one of those was your favorite?

For some reason a few of our tulips bloomed like this. Weird, but neat!

The next several pictures aren’t exactly flowers I suppose… But they’re so pretty I couldn’t leave them out!

New needle growth on evergreen tree. Okay guys, I REALLY LOVE this picture! I just think theย spiraling pattern is so neat. God made even such small things beautiful!

And all the rest of these pictures were taken at the Arboretum.

Dutchman’s Breeches. They really look like upside-down pants, don’t they? XD They’re so unique and pretty.


And that’s about it! Whew, I hope you’re not flowered out. XD What is your favorite kind of flower? Which of these pictures was your favorite?

Have a gorgeous spring day!


P. S. I made up a riddle: What word contains all five vowels? Hints: This isn’t a trick-riddle, it’s just a knowledge-riddle. It’s not even a long word or anything. But I’ll bet it will take a while for you to figure out! (Unless, like my sister, I’ve already told you. No telling, Megan! XD ) I shall tell you the answer… eh, sometime in the future. XD

  1. These pictures are AMAZING! I love them, Allison! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Okay, here’s my answer- Tourmaline! Was that it? ๐Ÿ˜€
    P.S. My mom thought of that word, I was completely clueless XD


    1. Aww, thanks bunches (of flowers), Jaclynn! XD Whoa, I have no idea what tourmaline means. XD *Looks it up* Oh, right – a gem. I knew that. XD XD Yeah, that works – but it actually wasn’t the word I was thinking of. ๐Ÿ˜€ Apparently this is a multi-answer riddle. XD

  2. Those are amazing pictures! The Lady’s Slipper flower looks like it has a tongue sticking out1 ๐Ÿ˜›


    1. Aww, thank you very much, Aunt Sharon! Yep, I agree. If you don’t have a top of the line camera, you’re forced to use your mind and brain to compose good shots rather than relying on the camera’s special features. Although I have to admit, having a good camera most certainly helps! My photography has improved both by having a good camera and by practicing. It was so fun hiking with you today! Thanks for inviting us!


  3. This post is from a while ago… but very pretty! I love flowers ๐Ÿ™‚
    I was wondering… what is the answer to the riddle? (if you still remember) XD Since you wrote this post so long ago I thought I’d ask ๐Ÿ˜‰ XD


    1. Aww, thanks! And I certainly don’t mind that this post is from a while ago. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so glad you found it!
      Heh heh, I actually do remember! It’s “sequoia.” I thought it was a pretty neat word. ๐Ÿ˜‰
