Seeing Beauty when you Travel

Looking through Rose of Sharon Bushes enjoying nature can be almost anywhere you travel.
Rose of Sharon's are an old time flower, that attract birds and bees. Some are white as above, some lavendar and some are a rosey pink.
A large deep red Mallow, in the same family as the above Rose of Sharon's. They get so large sometimes a foot in diameter, they almost don't look real.
Maybe you'll see Lilly's in your travels. They are hundreds of colors, hundreds of varieties, all pretty.
An attempt to be artsy here, shooting through the bush as the wind was blowing.
Some Lilly's hang almost upside down. I'm carefully lifting it up to get the photo for you.

Sometimes travel isn't just about the destination, it's about the travel and what you see, smell along the way. Take time and enjoy it.

  2. Those are lovely flowers, remind me of the flowers that use to grow behind my house as a child. They look like hibiscus flowers to me, but I can't say that I'm an expert in horticulture.
