Flower Fix

Blue hydrangeas at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve featured flower photos on my blog. While we were in Seattle recently, I managed to snap some photos of the pretty flora of the area. As usual, I have no idea what any of these flowers are—I just pointed my Nikon D300 and Nikon 105mm lens at them and clicked.

Well, except for these hydrangeas.

The only reason I know what they are is that when we were on Bainbridge Island, my sister-in-law FW (wife of my baby brother, the hotshot Chicago lawyer), said to her daughters, “Look at those hydrangeas!” Sharp, ain’t I?!?

Other than those and the final it’s-really-a-weed-but-I like-how-it-looks photo, your guess is as good as mine as to what these flowers are. But I sure like how beautiful they all are!

I like calling these “fuzzy white flowers.” ’Cause that’s exactly how they look!

There’s more to photograph at the zoo than just the animals!

Do the animals even notice the flowers around them?

It’s just a common dandelion, but it was the final flora photo I took in Seattle.

Whew, glad I got in my flower fix! Wonder what in the heck they are!!
