Today's Flowers

Today’s Flowers was created by Luiz Santilli Jr. and is now managed by Santilli and Denise BC. You have my thanks for allowing me to participate in such a delightful event. Please click on the icon above to see wonderful flowers from all over the world, and even join in the fun by posting your own.

My contributions this week were flowers found in or around The United States Botanic Garden in Washington DC. I'm afraid I only know the flower above which is part of the orchid family - Spathoglottis Plicata. The others I couldn't identify.

  2. Lovely post, the last one is a single Dahlia and that green pompom surely belongs to the Onion family, sorry I can't help with the others without major research.

  13. Once again a rich post. I wondered about the green clustered one too; looks just like my bloomin' garlic! The blue flower is wonderful. Congrats by the way on your newly acquired citizenship. I read your post a couple weeks ago and forgot to offer my comments.
