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.

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.

Sandra said...

Beautiful and unusual...

Bim said...

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!

Great selction of different beautys! I'm sorry to say I cannot help you with the names - but they are beautiful to look at anyhow! :)

Arija said...

The lat one looks like a Bromiliad, I'm sure Titania will know most of them.
Nice travel collection.

Sherry said...

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.

I know some of them but they are are beautiful. The little red one that looks like a cactus is an Euphorbia called Crown of Thorns. MB

Hi Denise, I don't their names either, but they are so pretty? Could they be part of the succulent family?

Reader Wil said...

Whatever their names may be, they are very pretty and very new to me! Thanks for sharing this and for your visit and kind words!

Quiet Paths said...

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

Tarolino said...

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.

Tina said...

the first one is very unusual. i like it when the flowers dont look like normal ones

fishing guy said...

Denise: They are certainly beautiful.

Libby Murphy said...
