You take such lovely photos. Although I prefer lilies to cacti.
I won't like to sit on your beautiful rounded "stools". They are so beautiful.
Beautiful, love the colors in all of them. I can hardly wait to get outside and play in my yard. take care.
the last one is not a texture i would like you feel i don't think.. :/ eeepgreat photographs though
Wonderful texture photos. Those cactus are simply gorgeous!
Fabulous photos!! I so want spring to come. What a great way to spend your day. In a garden. Wow!HugsSueAnn
Really great textural choices. I love them both, but I'm partial to barn wood. :)
I love those sort of places in winter. I went into a butterfly garden at Niagara Falls one Thanksgiving and loved the contrast of the snow and cold outside and the tropical feel inside.
That was a lovely garden to visit. It makes me warm inside just to look at the photos.
Lovely photos, the amaryllis is excellent.
I think would enjoy a trip to a conservatory right now. How refreshing!
we all need a taste of summer right now!
Great shots, I really like the waterwheel..:-)
Thanks for the outing.....after this winter I needed it. I love the cactus shot.
I am definitely due a visit to my local nursery...beautiful photos and they did warm me up:)
As always, great shots! The amaryllis especially.

Gilly: the were astounding.SueAnn: I met a friend there, and unfortunately, a snow storm swirled around us after we left to find lunch!Dibear: I rather like that barnboard myselfSAW: I've been there, too. Isn't it wonderful? this is a free conservatory in the middle of downtown Toronto.
Nora: it was a perfect meeting place. the best part is that the gardens change with the seasons so you are never bored.Shirley: I like the delicate piping on the edge of the amaryllis. thanks.Stine: you are not that far away... next time you are in Toronto, it is worth stopping.Brenda: except Ann who is in NZ and Chloe in AU!

The weathered barn texture is gorgeous; really great eye to catch the flower in front of it. Really good contrast.Now to check out this Sunday Stills (finally!).

I feel warmer already.

XUP: I'm glad. we need the warmth and promise of spring.Holly: thanks, my favourite, too
Oh so lovely, I do like the cacti....I have some at home but am planning on bringing them to work. They make a statement I reckon!
I love the amaryllis. x
Sagittarian: yes... that would make a statement!Dennisthemenace: just for you. thanks.

morephotosplease: thank youallhorsestuff: my friend and I sat looking in amazement at the size of those cacti for a long time. thanks.char: thanks, mine too.
I love that amaryllis! I've never seen one that is outlined like that. Very nice shots!
I'm a sucker for amaryllis!
Susan: that red edge makes it looks more delicate than one assumes an amaryllis to beLena: same here. I always get two at Christmas - sometimes you can actually hear them growing!
good textures, really pretty photos- i especially like that cacti one :)
Johnny: thanks, I'm glad the cacti one doesn't make anyone dizzy, with the odd angle!
The waterwheel looks very classy, and the flowers have their own beauty -even the cacti! Sorry it's so cold!
I recognize these plants! Saw them this morning...beautiful!
Jeannette: the cacti are rather impressive when they are this big!
Susan: glad you dropped by!
