Today's Flowers

'Today’s Flowers' was created by Luiz Santilli Jr. and is now managed by Santilli and Denise BC. Thank you very much for all the hard work you put into this delightful meme, for the pleasure of us all. Please click on the icon above to post your own photos if you want to join in, and also see wonderful flowers from all over the world.

A bee of summer past.

A robin on a magnolia pod in Gregg's Dad's back yard, taken some time ago.

The same magnolia tree.

I am not sure what this beautiful flower is. We found it when we were walking along part of the Appalachian Trail along Skyline Drive in the Shenandoahs.

These beautiful blooms I found in my friend Kathy's garden.

I do know what this one is as I took a photo of its name on a stick right next to it. It is the Common Rose Mallow - Hibiscus Moscheutos - "Lord Baltimore" - Maluaceae (Hibiscus Family) I love it when all plants and flowers are posted so clearly. This one I found at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens.

Does anyone know what this one is? Added note: This is a CLEOME. Yayyyyy, by jove I think she's got it. Thanks Eve!
Mums, oh happy Mums. I do wish you were in my garden instead of at the flower nursery. Next year perhaps.

Eve said...

Denise, Denise, Denise.....how many times do I have to remind you...now say it three times....Cleome...Cleome...Cleome!!
Or just remember Spider Flower!!
There will be a quiz next week!!!
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!! Your flowers are beautiful and you make me smile!!!

Leora said...

Cleome! My trick: go to Google images and type what you think it might be. Then you can verify. Only works if you have some ideas of names.

Love the second bee. And the unidentified pink ones.

Denise.
Thank you for your visit and comment.
Just admired your pictures with the busy bees..
BBC online edition features the following article about bees:
Why are Europe's bees dying?
Concerns raised all over the world. Perhaps you are interested.
No flowers no bees.
No bees no flowers.

Bright, bold and beautiful. You brought memories of a warm summer on a cold autumn (winter) night.

david mcmahon said...

Beautiful shots, Denise. I wonder what the mystery bloom is - a protea perhaps?

Rocky Mtn. Girl said...

You are getting sharper and sharper, my friend, with your photography. Sheesh! Splendid photos... have you gone out and bought a new camera! WOW... amazing shots!

Your flowers are beautiful.It's amazing how you could photograph bees and birds. I'm not so lucky, they always escape before I catch them.
