Color for the weekend...

     If you ever visit Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, PA, be sure to step out of the beaten path and view their formal waterlily gardens outside.  They have a couple dozen varieties of waterlilies to enjoy. I missed recording the name of this one, but we enjoy a print of it everyday on a blue-painted wall in our home.  ~ Photo taken September 2009.

Here are some views from Phipps' Spring Show 2009
and Phipps' Spring Show 2011.

   With "Color for the weekend," I will be delving into the tremendous store of old photo I have from before my writing days to share with you all.  Hopefully they will be an inspiring end to your week!

  2. That's a lovely photograph; I can see why you would frame and display in your home. It's very mystical and shimmery.

  3. What a stunning photo! It is so peaceful and I love the blues and greens. I have never tried having a water garden before, but photos like this make me want to try!
