Favorite Pictures [Wednesday]

I thought I’d spend the rest of the week sharing some of my favorite pictures from our trip. Today’s are all from the time I spent at Santa Clara University. Enjoy!


So colorful!


Lovely flower, no?


For context, here's the flowers from the previous photo. They're huge!


Statue of Santa Clara in the middle of the garden (in-between the two arbors).


I sat outside the de Saisset museum to photograph the mission and some flowers. Imagine my surprise when this hummingbird decided to pay me a visit. He wasn't more than an arm's length away!


Hanging overhead.


The trellis was full of these flowers. The background tree trunks are actually the base of the vines that made up the overhead trellis, I believe. They were all woven together, and had obviously been there a long time. It was beautiful.

    The flower in the picture with the humming bird is, um, the bird of peace or some such thing, it’s the national flower of South Africa.

    Dude, Birds of paradise. There’s a special one with different color that was bred in honor of Nelson Mandella. That’s what you picture looks like. 🙂
