TODAY'S FLOWERS

TODAY’S FLOWER’S is a wonderful meme created by Luiz Santilli Jr. and is managed by Luiz, Denise B. Castro and Laerte Pupo. I am also happy to be part of this team. You can find the most beautiful flowers from all over the world and also share your own by clicking on the button below. The link opens every Sunday from 7.00 p.m. (GMT)

My contribution this week are photos from our travels. I'm sorry that I don't know any of their names. I had never seen such plants and flowers before and I couldn't find any identification. Hopefully someone will recognize them and let me know.

  1. I just know the second one. It's called an Ixora. It's great for dry weather. However, mine is full of aphids right now.

  4. Isn't it amazing the incredible differences in flowers. I especially like the blue streaked bud. What delights await us when we look at things closely, before their "prime" and afterward! Thank you for sharing!

  7. I don't think I have seen any of these before. They're all pretty! My favorite is the purple and white buds with the red stems, it's such an unusual color combination.

  28. These are so very delicate and colorful; little gems in the greenery. I enjoyed each one. Thank you!

  29. Really exotic and wonderful all of them. I guess it'd be the Crown of Thorns (such a contradiction in the spiky stem and the delicate leaves and flowers) and the tree stumps that became my favourite of the whole wonderful collection. Looks like a banana plant or something similar in the background. The first one resembles a little bit a wild wetland plant over here that grows in my neighbourhood brook in the summer but is just less frilly than the one pictured here.
