Flowers ++

Not too much going on this week...

just trying to see and do and visit loved ones before I...

get ready...


GO BACK TO WORK!

Yes, I got the job. Woot! Thanks for all the prayers, well wishes, and good thoughts sent my way. I really appreciate it! Unless something out of the ordinary comes up to prevent me from taking on this fabulous position (with the year I've had it wouldn't surprise me), I will start on June 18th. Three miles away and NO PANTYHOSE. Did I mention that already? Hee.

These are flowers I've seen lately, some unidentifiable. If you can help me ID them I'd be thrilled to pieces.

ID #1 needed
Indian Pink - thanks, Mamabug!


Coneflowers - notice the heart vine so gracefully growing through them.

ID #2 needed

ID #3 needed

Periwinkles?
Update: Duranta from the Verbena family
Thanks, Deanna!

ID #4 needed
Flowering Maple
Thanks, Pat at Bailey Road

Captured this green anole one second before he jumped off the foot of a staute

EDIT: Sorry, I forgot to say what the job was: Executive Assistant to the CEO of a local credit union.

Such beautiful photos. #4 looks like flowering maple.
Congratulations on your new job!

These fabulous flowers obviously don't grow in Oregon (other than the coneflowers...a favorite in my own flowerbeds), so I can't help. But #3 is truly amazing! All those layers make it look like a paper flower. Congrats on the job!

Shug said...

Butterbean Row said...

Congratulations on your new job, Gail! I am so happy for you, especially since you don't have to wear panty hose. That was never a good idea.

I think #4 might be in the Peony family.
Gorgeous shots!

CONGRATULATIONS GAIL!!!
I am truly so happy for you.

Your photographs are wonderful, especially those coneflowers. Gorgeous color and softness.

Have a great weekend, and I wish you all the best in your new position.

Congratulations! How wonderful to get a job.

And these shots - well, they are just fabulous!

Barbara said...

yay on the new job, and especially the 'no pantyhose' clause! love these flowers but can't help you id any. sorry!

Hilary said...

Oh yay you! I'm so happy for you. Your flower images reflect such beauty as always. A website identifying your local flowers might be of help.

Deanna said...

Hip Hip Hooray you are now a working girl. Hope it is everything you dream it will be, but one thing is for sure, no panty hose!! Gorgeous flower images!!

Now to identify some of your flowers...
the blue one (periwinkle) is a Duranta. I fell in love with these while in Galveston.

I think #4 might be an hisbiscus and #2, could it be some kind of a honeysuckle??

No idea on the others.

Phil said...

Congrats Gail. Hope the CEO knows what to expect! LOL

Nadine, Chewy and Lilibell said...

Congratulations Gail!!!

Sorry, but I can't help you with the flowers, I'm so lousy with flower names, I couldn't even begin to tell you the flowers I have in my boxes....they're just pretty flowers, lol!

Rosemary Aubut said...

Gorgeous shots Gail! Congrats on the new job!

cat @ sea.sky.stone. said...

I'm not very good with flower names, but I know pretty when I see it, and these are that! A big woo-hoo on the new pantyhoseless job, too--that's great!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Congrats on the job and woot on no pantyhose!!! Love the green anole pic.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Congrats, that's wonderful news....the leave-your-things-behind trick must have done it! ;) Hope it all goes well for you, a fresh challenge.

Love your flower photos, especially the hibiscus/Chinese Lantern one which is so crisp and gorgeous!

Tricia Hays said...

You're crackin me up, Gail! LoL! =)

Kathy said...

Congrats on the new job. I hope it doesn't interfere too much with your picture-taking!
