Monday we looked at the top posts of 2021 in terms of visitors and link party features. At the end of the first year of my little blog, I did a post of my favorite flowers from the year before. I included flowers in the garden or in a bouquet. If you’ve visited me before you probably know flowers are one of my great loves. Several years ago I also included a few nature shots, another great love. Today’s post is some of my favorites photos of flowers and nature from 2021. I hope I included some of yours too.
I have to admit many of my favorite nature shots this year were gifts from my nephews. Last summer James and his wife Heather flew to Las Vegas and then drove to see the sights including Valley of Fire, Desert View Watchtower, Grand Canyon, Red Rock Canyon, Nevada, and so much more. I always love James photos as he has a great eye for composition. It’s really hard to choose just a few as they are all so beautiful. Here’s a couple:
Valley of Fire
Bright Angel Trail Grand Canyon
Sunset in the Grand Canyon
In the fall my nephew Robert and his wife Lisa go up to north Michigan to enjoy the fall foliage and celebrate their anniversary. Here is photo from this year’s trip,

Now let’s start with red begonias and a gnome from last January. I love having flowering houseplants in the winter. The begonias lasted for several months.

I also enjoy occasionally buying bouquets for the table.
Roses & A Stone Bird
In the spring, my favorite season, I discovered this gorgeous tree a few blocks from my home. I’m already planning to visit there again this spring. I wish I could find one for my home.

Then amaryllis around the tree bloomed too.
