May's topic for the Focus on Life 2014 weekly photography challenge is
'In, At and About'
and for week 22, Sally (The Studio Sublime) gave us this prompt:
"This week we are focusing on what is IN Bloom!"
The only thing blooming here in the desert right now is the heat.
Well, there's tons of saguaro blooms that are looking pretty awesome right now, but I couldn't capture a good pic of those this week.
And, bougainvilleas and bird of paradise are always in bloom here when it's summer and super hot, but the pics I took of those didn't come out as well as this shot of one of the last roses in our rose bush.
The pics from the top looking down on the rose showed all the scorched petals, so I chose this angle because it looked the prettiest!
Okay, back to the bloomin' heat!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Beauty In Bloom!
*A little side note,...
Today would have been my Dad's 95th Birthday.
Happy Birthday Dad!!
Miss you so much - every single day!
