Friday Flower Fiesta — #3 (February 3, 2012)

Friday Flower Fiesta

Today’s Friday Flower Fiesta is dedicated to Sharon Lord of Tempe, Arizona, who owns Argent Décor. She provides home staging, vacation home furnishing, and décor ideas, all of it affordable.

I have known Sharon as a virtual friend for several years and believe that if you need any advice on staging, furnishing, and décor, Sharon is your go-to woman. Sharon, this Friday Flower Fiesta is for you!

Today’s Friday Flower Fiesta pictures were taken this past week at the San Diego Zoo, which also is an internationally recognized botanical garden as well as a world-class zoo.

Friday Flower Fiesta

Today’s Friday Flower Fiesta, titled “It’s a sunny day,” is dedicated to Carl and Ceil Winters of New Braunfels, Texas. Carl and Ceil run Complete Inspection Service, a home inspection company doing business in Canyon Lake, New Braunfels, and San Antonio.

I have known Carl and Ceil as virtual friends for three years, and have always found in them a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. Carl and Ceil, this Friday Flower Fiesta is for you!

If any real estate sellers, buyers, or agents in the hill country of central Texas need a complete home inspection, call Carl and Ceil of Complete Inspection Service.

Today’s Friday Flower Fiesta pictures were taken on Monday, January 23, 2012, in the neighborhoods of La Mesa, California, about 10 miles due east of downtown San Diego.

Friday Flower Fiesta — #1 (January 20, 2012)

Friday Flower Fiesta

On of the great things about living in San Diego (and there are many!) is that flowers are always blooming. Many plants that are only supposed to bloom at certain times of the year, like roses, can be found blooming at other times, sometimes even year-round.

Each Friday I’ll share five to ten flower photos from the Russel Ray Photos collection. I don’t always know all of the names, but when I do, I’ll let you know.

I use a Canon Rebel XSi and a Canon 550D, which is the same as the Canon Rebel T2i if you bought it in the United States. Mine was imported from London, England, before the Rebel T2i was available here. I use Corel Paintshop Pro X4 to crop or otherwise adjust the pictures and then to add a frame to them.

Today’s Friday Flower Fiesta pictures were taken on Christmas Day 2011 at the San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park about 40 miles northeast of downtown San Diego.
