Today's Flowers



Today’s Flowers was created by Luiz Santilli Jr. and is now managed by Santilli and Denise BC. Thank you for such a wonderful place to share flower photos from all over the world. To get to Today's Flowers please click on the icon above.

I have an apology to make as I did not realize this week was to be of a holiday theme. I posted the regular ones before I went to the site. I have been a little out of touch lately. I did however find one photo that I took on our walk yesterday, which is under this meme's icon above.

My photos this week were taken at the Punchbowl National Cemetery in Honolulu, Hawaii. It is not only a most beautiful and sacred place but is unique in that it is located in the crater of an extinct volcano. You can find out more here and here.

  21. I love it that you're visiting our island, Denise. I haven't been to Punchbowl in forever. It takes a visitor to remind us of what's here.
