Not of This Season ~ Round Robin

The current Round Robin Photo Challenge is to post a photo of something you wouldn't see, or which would be very difficult to find during winter. A sunny day at the beach, an amazing sunset, summer fruits, a beautiful flower in bloom, someone wearing shorts or summer clothes, a tree filled with beautiful leaves, a pumpkin on a porch, you get the idea.

Here in the Tacoma, WA area we have been dealing all week with heavy fog and bitter cold weather. I was on the look out for the person who might be crazy enough to wear shorts but found none. I also knew I could easily use a photo on file for this challenge but, I truly wanted something taken within the past few weeks.

I decided to share the following two photos filled with beautiful spring flowers, tropical plants and Chihuly glass. All are unusual and not of this season ... YET.

Hi Monica :)

Lovely flowers. I don't think I have seen anything that compares. :) Just looking at them makes me feel warm, on this very cold day in the Bay Area.

Hugs, Carly

Ooh, I love that first shot - very colorful, and I wasn't sure for a moment whether the beautiful flame-colored tendrils were flowers or glass! I also love the round glass pieces in the second shot.

Sorry for the delay in commenting - I've been distracted by Life for a few days.
