"White" and "Up Close With Val"!...

I chose to pick the color white for this week's Scavenger Hunt brought to you by Krissy.  Hey, Krissy, congratulations on the Vivi nomination!!  I am very proud of you, by the way!!

We were allowed to pick a color of our choice.  I chose white.  I wanted to pick a color that was kind of hard.  The first two pictures are geraniums in my front yard.  They are still very beautiful which is interesting because we have had night's in the 30's and 40's already.  I don't think they will be this pretty for very long.  I love geraniums, especially red ones.  I had a red one, but it is no longer blooming.  My mom grew geraniums in my youth so I think that is why I have such an affection for them.
                                

    
The second shot I took was the sky.  Today was quite beautiful.  The clouds were white/grey.  The sun was out most of the time and the temperature is in the 50's.  Quite a lovely day!!
           
I have one last shot for you.  I am going to use it for an "Up Close With Val" game!  It has white in it as well.  What do you think it is?  Leave your guess in the comment's section or send me an email at valphish@aol.com.  I will let you know if you are correct.  Answer coming soon!!
            

              

Have a lovely week! xox

  1. Your geraniums are gorgeous! I've never seen white ones before that looked so lovely. The sky picture is wonderful, the clouds really stand out against that blue sky.

    Have a great one!

  9. Roadsign I am pretty sure.  Love your white Geraniums Val. I did not see any around this summer over here but I do like them. I remember you saying red was your favourite colour for geraniums. Yes, great about Krissy!!!!!  Sorry you were not nominated, I did try, voted for your both, not going to hide it (different categories)

  12. Great choice Val! White is so hard to photograph, and you made it look easy. Love your white geraniums. (Do you bring the plants inside, during the long winter months?) The sky is beautiful, I love looking at the clouds.    ~Deborah

  13. Hmm, could it be a car registration plate?

  14. Your geraniums remind me of weddings Val. As for the "up close", I go along with Sara, 1st thought that came into my head was a car registration number plate. Or maybe it is a road name sign - yours.

    Okay, is it a street sign that says Zone and probably Speed on it too?  lol

  19. I have learned to recognize another flower, the geranium, which is looking great.  I am going to read the rest of your journal when I can get the time.   My home construction takes all my energy, and I am missing out on so many journals.  mark
