THE BLOOMS OF ALHAMBRA

A trip to Granada isn’t complete without visiting the majestic palace of Alhambra, which is one of the last Islamic palaces built in Spain by the Moors. The palace is one architectural masterpiece and its interiors remind me much of the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey mostly due to the colorful mosaics and geometric designs. I also enjoyed exploring the palace gardens, which was bursting in a kaleidoscope of colors from the multiple flowering plants. Here are some of the photos I took of the garden blooms using my iPhone 7 Plus.

HOME DEPOT BLOOMS

I was at Home Depot this afternoon to buy some gardening stuff and decided to stay a few extra minutes to explore their garden section. I found myself admiring the blooms and decided to whip out my iPhone and started taking these photos. It is very convenient that one can just buy a potted plant complete with flowers and all. Gone were the days when you have to start with a seed and pray it grows then pray harder that it survives  to bloom. The retail industry has indeed made life very convenient.
