Greener Living


These were taken by my husband when he drove the kids who attended Bible Study (August 2009) in Camp Walker, Daegu! I don't know exactly what are the names of these flowers but they are gorgeous!
I love this dahlia..

The beautiful black eyed susans..
The chapel where some of the BS was held.I took this one at our garden here.
I was observing this ant that was walking in the big leaf so I snapped a pic of it.
These are the ones I took in the lake where we spent our weekend last week.
Lovely colors isn't it?
Isn't this lovely, the young leaves are in different color.
My husband took this one, he love the flow of the water...
I love how the branches of this tree looks..
An appealing sight.. for a lovely day.
I saw this bee feasting on the nectar of this flower so I I tried to capture her.
Here she is, I finally captured one. It took me several minutes to catch her in a steady position.
So who wouldn't want to stay here, very relaxing and so refreshing.
A great place to stay on weekend with family and friends. Have a great week guys!

  19. The flowers and plants are all so beautiful. The only one you didn't name that I'm sure about is the coleus. That's the colorful plant after the photograph with the bridge. I think it's the 9th photograph. It's the red and green leaves and looks like it has fern in front of it.

  20. What a lovely post!
    The flowers are beautiful. I like the windows of the chapel.
    the flowing water pic is so serene.
    Carver identified the coleus for you and I think the red leaves are from the Photina plant or as I know it 'redtips'

    Thanks for your visit. :)

  21. Your flowers are very lovely. I like the coleus, which are the deep red and green ones.

  22. I'm sorry, Rose, but I don't know the name of the flower.
    Your photos are great and so are the places you visit.
    Have a good week, dear!

  23. Rose: You have beautiful flowers and plants. I can't help with the name but you captured it beautifully.

  24. What a beautiful place! What country is it? I saw lavender dahlias in photos 2 and 3, and #4 is a type of daisy. I also saw coleus, the purple and green-leafed plant. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  25. What pretty flowers. The first one is Malva alcea, I think.

  27. Hi Rose, you overdid yourself in this post! Great captures even the tree by the lake is gorgeous!

  28. Beautiful flowers and plants. The green with the red leaves is as Carletta said a Red tipped Photina, I have one in my yard.

  33. Did your daughter win the smiling contest?

  34. Gorgeous blooms; from your garden?
    The colourful leaves are Coleus. The first young leaves of certain shrubs are red to protect them from sunburn!

  37. Beautiful flowers - but I'm not very good at naming them :)

  38. Hi Rose,
    The first one is Hollyhocks and Carver and the rest identified the coleus. The one with red young leaves i believe is a rubber tree.

    Yeah! Rylie won!!! Congrats my dear girl, you really have a nice smile so you are indeed very deserving!
