Flowers and Fences

Here are a few flowers and fences I saw in our neighbourhood in the Algarve for Good Fences and Today's Flowers for Theresa's and Denise's memes.


All the following photos were taken in July when we were on holiday in the Algarve.
 

This flower is from one of the Hibiscus shrubs in the garden.
 

Also from the garden. but I don't know it's name!!
 

I passed these pretty pink Oleander flowers and fence, on my way to the beach every morning
 

A closer look at the Oleander blooms.
 

Another Hibiscus flower from the garden.
 

A neighbours fence with the beautiful Plumbago blooms.
 

The Plumbago flower with what looks like a crab spider in waiting.
 

Not quite sure if this is also a Hibiscus bloom!!!
 

Another Hibiscus.
 

One of the many Villas with a high fence, seen in the vicinity.
 

A tiny flower with another crab- like spider.
 

A Rose, with the most delightful perfume.
 
I will be linking up with Good Fences and Today's Flowers as they become avail able.

...and it's the best way of displaying it! The colourful smooth pieces will look beautiful just in a dish or glass jar.

You have so much beauty here! It's a wonderful sight to behold before I "hit the hay"(get some sleep). My favorite must be the oleander flowers and fence--lovely scene. Thanks for sharing!

As suas imagens estão lindas!
Amei os hibiscus, plantei um pé por aqui e este
ano floresceu; esse vermelho da sua imagem está lindo.
Boa continuação de semana.
