Floral Friday Challenge.

Some images from Dubai.

The only genuine flower shot I have from those few days.

A Bougainvillea, I think.

Not sure what type of palm these are…

but I am sure they look better at night,

from a Dubai Creek Cruise,

than during daylight hours.

The Faraglioni Rock Formation…

off Capri island, Italy…

sets the scene…

for this week’s Floral Friday images.

 

 I would be only guessing the name of these plants

but I do like both.

The purple/blue one looks a bit like

a Tibouchina, however,

ours have never been climbers.

Floral Friday Challenge.

Our first wet day of our trip

caught up with us in Venice…

where we were destined to take cruise…


across the Venetian Lagoon to Murano.

In Murano’s windows we found quite a variety of flowers…

adding colour to a wet dreary day.

This was by far my favourite.

I should also add that while I described the day

as wet and dreary,

I was referring to the weather.

We had a wonderful lunch among great company

at one of Murano’s restaurants.
