These are a collection of flower photos I have been able to capture during my travels. I have included some from my grandma’s garden from my hometown San Germán, Puerto Rico. The others are from beautiful gardens in Croatia and California.

“For Peace Alone Do I Ring”-Inscribed in the Hoover Tower’s largest bell.

A beautiful glance from Stanford’s historic Hoover Tower. This its a very inexpensive and or free tour, where you can learn a lot about the history of war, revolution and peace of America. It holds 48 bells, a gift from the Belgium-American Foundation. Provides a great view of the serene campus.

Photo taken in Palo Alto, CA. August 2012.

The beautiful city of Varaždin, Croatia, known for as the City Where Angels Sleep. This creative installment is located in a small alley between two buildings in Croatia. Carefully hidden, giving it a mysterious yet marvelous thought at point of discovery by tourists. Photo taken June 2012.

This is one of the most beautiful historic places in Varaždin, Croatia. This town reminds me of my hometown in San German, Puerto Rico. It has beautiful plazas, a cathedral, the Faculty of Organization & Informatics (FOI)University of Zagreb, great food, beautiful people and its genuine Old Town Castle.


The “Licitar” is Croatia’s symbol of love and affection. It is a beautiful hand-crafted work of art made of an edible ginger bread sweet cookie containing honey, but is used as decoration rather than for eating. It is given as a gift during holiday celebrations to loved ones and it is a favorite Christmas tree ornament.
