Weekly Photo Challenge: Ooh, Shiny!

From Inishmore, Aran Islands.


When I’m taking pictures, the thing most likely to catch my eye is a pretty flower!  Ireland has the most gorgeous flower boxes and baskets everywhere, outside homes and businesses, or just on the street.  This particular one I found outside a restaurant on Inishmore when we came down from Dun Aonghasa (Dun Aengus) for lunch.  I loved the bright colors against the white wall.  I also loved the multiple shades of lobelia hanging down– it’s one of my favorite flowers, which I even had at my wedding years ago.

    It’s nice to see nature all bright and pretty against a white wall.

    Wonderful looking flowerbox Mei-Mei, we could do with a few more of them on the East coast of Scotland 🙂

    I like how most homes have flower boxes or flower containers–their weather is perfect for flowers.

      It really is! We’ve had a dry summer, and I’m an indifferent gardener, so all my flower boxes at home have died now haha. Makes me quite jealous 🙂
