Our World Tuesday

Today is Tuesday, so that means it's time once again for Our World Tuesday, a weekly meme that encourages bloggers to share images of their world. It's a great way to get a glimpse of life through the eyes of others! You can find out more about it here. Even if you don't participate, I encourage you to take a look at the intriguing photos that bloggers from around the world share each week.

My kids noticed this flower at our neighbor's house yesterday morning, and I just had to take a photo. I'm not sure what kind of plant this is, but it's a gorgeous color, and it definitely brightens up the gray days we've been having around here lately. I hope it brings a touch of brightness to your world, as well!
 
 
Wishing you all a beautiful Tuesday. ☺
