My Favorite Flowers & Nature Photos From 2021

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.

For several weekends toward the end of May, Heather was working in the garden.  First James and Heather totally redid one flower bed adding a row of roses.

Pink Rose Welcome Summer Printable

The first day of summer this year is Sunday, June 20th.  To me, June is the month of roses. When my sister and her husband purchased their Michigan home back some decades ago, one of the loves was the old huge pink climbing rose on the side of the house. Each June brought a bounty of beauty. My sister had bowls of roses everywhere. Today’s printable is a Welcome Summer sign with lots of pink roses.

They can burn out and must be fed constantly.  I’ve not had luck growing them here and just buy my roses.

My Favorite Flower & Nature Photos of 2020

Last week we looked at the top posts of 2020 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.  Traditionally I have only 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.  Last year I also included a few nature shots, another great love. Today’s post is some of my favorites photos of flowers and nature  from 2020.  I hope I included some of yours too.
