The Oval Plaza in Jerash, Jordan. (See more about its architecture here.)

Wikipedia says that “Jerash is known for the ruins of the Greco-Roman city of Gerasa” and that it “is considered one of the most important and best preserved Roman cities in the Near East.”

From the Chopper, originally uploaded by Arty Librarian.

Aerial view of the Scilly Isles – or more properly, the Isles of Scilly – which are made up of five inhabited islands and many small islets; they are located about 45 km (28 mi) off the Cornish coast of England.

(Check out the rest of this photographer’s shots of the Isles of Scilly here on Flickr.)

Wikipedia informs me that the Isles “rarely have frost or snow, which allows local farmers to grow flowers well ahead of those in mainland Britain” and that “[t]he chief agricultural product is cut flowers”.

And thanks to my friend Kate for bringing them to my attention!
