B Is For Beautiful

Today I will dedicate the letter B to all things I find to be beautiful.
First I will show you some of the flowers I have seen and had the pleasure of photographing.

From my mother-in-law's garden.

From my mother's garden. Notice the bee buzzing around?

From an Easter bouquet the hubby got me last year.
How about some beautiful skies before my eyes...

God was smiling on us this day!

Even on the verge on a storm, it is amazing to see!

How about beauty in a bead of water?

What about a building or landmark if you prefer. The CN Tower used to be the largest tower in the world. Now it's second to the Buraj al Arab in Dubai.

This is my niece Bella, short for Isabella. Bella is also Italian for Beautiful. Which she is, cute as a button!

Now you know I saved the best for last. My babies! My boy, Kris, you met him in yesterday's post. Brianna is my youngest, and now a teen too!
