A word a week photo challenge -ORANGE

This week's photo challenge at a word in your ear is orange. First up is part of a wonderful floral display in Wynn's hotel in Las Vegas.

I have always judged The Bellagio to have premier ranking when talking flower displays but the Wynn has been giving it a serious run for its money lately. The umbrellas below also come from the Wynn. If you ever visit the Wynn you absolutely must stop and have a cocktail (or two) on the terrace of the umbrella bar.

The rest of my choices are from Guernsey in the Channel Islands and my 'home from home'(where I top up my vitamin D(!)), Arizona

Tulips in my garden
Cactus in flower
Sausmarez manor gardens, guernsey
Castle cornet, guernsey
More desert flowering plants


The red rocks of Sedona Arizona look more orange than red to me in this shot so they come in as my last entry. Sedona is one of the most beautiful places anywhere, not just in Arizona. I never tire of visiting. If you go do visit this church, great views from up there.

Thanks for visiting and getting this far.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla https://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
