    Random flower shots form both Riverfront and Manito parks, with a few from the Gaiser Conservatory greenhouse thrown in for good measure.

    More shots on my blog.

    Unlike Brian's beautiful flower shots, most of these were shot in very bright/direct/harsh sunlight. Not particularly conducive to great flower shots, but you dance with the one what brung ya. ;)

    There was a whole bed of these, but this one was sort of just hanging out doing its own thing. Same with the one on the blog, it was showing off as well.

    Neither had I. The little sign said it was a parrot beak, but these are very different than what I'm used to seeing as a parrot beak. Cool though. ;)

    Thanks Freddy. I'm going to try and track down one of those Autumn Splendor rose bushes next spring. Even if I have to go dig one up. Ack! Did I type that out loud? ;)

    Thanks Brian. My favorite flower is the last one on the blog entry, though it certainly isn't the best shot or the bunch.
