Calla Lilies in Abundance

One last photo from last weekend. Needless to say, I was amazed by the glorious floral displays within one hotel. I thought these calla lilies were fantastic. I love the effect of the "tied" bouquet. I first saw this technique when our family lived in England in the mid-ninties.

While at the hotel, a bride and groom entered. They had the perfect backdrop of photos in front of this entry floral arrangement.

This handsome couple stopped by for a swim in the pool. They would have stayed longer but I had to go out to take pictures. My presence sent them flying.

Yarrow Explodes in Large Golden Blooms

The weather has been extremely sunny for the past few days. The vibrant color of the yarrow seems to reflect the intensity of the sun.

I recommend clicking on the photo. The intricacy of the yarrow bloom is stunning.

Rice Industry Troubled by Genetic Contamination

An interesting article on genetically engineered crops from the Washington Post
When Fred Zaunbrecher heard in August that the popular variety of long-grain rice he was planning to grow had become contaminated with snippets of experimental, unapproved DNA, the Louisiana rice farmer took it in stride and ordered a different variety of seed for his spring planting.
