seasonal flowers.

i took these photos for a photo challenge on thymely thoughts & the theme is seasonal flowers {the photo challenge ends june 30th} these photos were taken at a local garden that demonstrates xeriscaping, which is a very "green" way to garden/landscape in hot & dry climates, such as mine. it conserves water and it includes many different plants, not just cacti!

& i am not sure what this one is... sorry.

ps. giveaway coming soon! :)
