Wild Flowers

For the past few weeks I have been sharing photos of Pink and purple blooms, waterlillies and  Bees with flowers. This week will be the last installment of pictures of flowers which I took on Jeju island during our trip in June.

The blooms in the series were taken from roadside flowers which we went past. I love how the clusters make up the white bloom above.

I love the dreamy look of this flower so I edited the picture to make it more like a flashback picture.  There was a whole bed of these type of flower outside one of the hotels which we stayed in.

What flowers have you been looking at this week?

Purple and Pink Blooms

If you have been visiting this blog you must have seen the waterlilies from last week. This week I am featuring some blooms which I captured  with my camera while at the Botanic gardens in Jeju island.

Purple is one of Tiger girl’s  favourite colors. ( Her other favourite color is pink). She was thrilled to have spotted this purple bloom while we  were walking around in the gardens.

This purple bloom had white stripes on its petals.  It looks like an orchid however I’m uncertain what the bloom was as there were no name plates near this bloom.

I love the purplish pink color on this bloom . I would certainly love to have this to display on the dining table as decoration.

 

What is your favourite color for blooms?

 

Waterliles

I have always love capturing photos of flowers. Besides the flowers and bees I also took countless shots of the flowers which we saw at the botanic garden at Jeju island, South Korea. The waterlily is one flower which captured my interest.

I first got to view the waterlily when I spotted a pool full of it near the BBQ pork restaurant which we were brought for lunch during the 1 day tour we signed up for.

Doesn’t it look super pretty close up?  It looks so refreshing and  lovely. I could easily spend time mesmerized in it’s beauty if I had the time.

There were more different varieties of waterlilies in the Botanic gardens. The blooms there too were much larger and certainly equally beautiful. It was a real treat for the eyes being in the garden.

I love the purple of this Star of Siam. It’s patterns on the leaves and the flower itself is very different from the traditional waterlilies which I have seen in ponds.

This yellow bloom didn’t not come out that well as it was hard to adjust the lighting and specs on the camera as the shot was taken in the harsh midday sun. The leaves look more amplified then the bloom itself.

Have you been snapping any flowers this week?
