Jet Lag Bloom Day, February 2010

Bloom day has passed ... it was February 15th but I was on the red eye flying back from Mexico. There were plenty of blooms in Puerto Vallarta. For those of you still covered in snow (as I am once again), please enjoy the sights of sunny Mexico and gardens in bloom. These photos were taken on a house tour sponsored by the Friendship Club. Our guides were volunteers and fees for the tour are donated to local children. We visited four homes in old town - three along the coast and one in the middle of downtown - spectacular!


Bloom day is the 15th of each month and is hosted (and created by) Carol at May Dreams Gardens. Muchas gracias!

  2. alright... now that i am totally jealous ;) what a lovely getaway. just the sheer beauty in the colors and hues alone. i am completely enamored by your second photo in particular. just gorgeous!!

  3. So beautiful! What a great place to visit in the winter, I love those blooms. That's the kind of pick me up everyone can use the middle of February.

  4. How wonderful to have been able to visit such a warm and beautiful place in the middle of winter. The flowers are beautiful. I recognize the Bougainvillea and Hibiscus :^)

  5. I love the first photo with the bright red flowers standing against the blue ocean! What a great trip and wonderful that you could help local children by visiting these lovely gardens. A nice break from winter!

  6. Violet Fern,
    What a wonderful adventure to chase away those winter blues. Your photos are beautiful, I just love the water fountain with the large shell beneath. And, the garden in that 4th image looks positively breathtaking. I hope you had a fabulous time!

  7. I'm so jealous of the bougainvillea and hibiscus in bloom in February! But I'm so glad you shared so I got to take in their beauty vicariously. :)

  8. Thank you all so much. I am glad you all enjoyed the get away. Everyone needs a winter pick me up!
