Welcome to Art For Fun Friday #74


Where in the World

Wildflowers in The Queens Park Savannah; Port of Spain, Trinidad🇹🇹

White camels can be found in different places in the world: the Middle East, Africa, India, Pakistan, Somalia, Saudi Arabia, and there are some even in the USA. In Pakistan, there are around 1.2 million Dromedary camels. According to researchers, an area there called Balochistan is rich in white-colored camels

Pretty flowers and cucumbers are the best when it is warm. Your photo of the slices is quite lovely and makes them even more tempting. :) And what a happy bee. I bet she is thrilled to have found those flowers. I hope you've had a great week Gillena. Thank you for linking up to AJJ. And Happy Friday to you. hugs-Erika

What a beautiful photo of bougainvillea! I've only ever seen it growing in Hawaii -- too cold here in Canada for it, I guess.

Love the art and cucumber. Also love how you reinvented the old art to make it adaptable for Chris's theme at AJJ. Sorry I am late. Got food poisoning on Friday and am just now able to get out of bed.
