TODAY'S FLOWERS # 59

"Austin rose ‘Graham Thomas’ the color is very similar."
as identified by Digital Flower Pictures.

I'm sorry but I don't know the names of a lot of these flowers, the roses yes but others I am still searching for the names. I always look for identifying markers but many had disappeared.

Added note: thanks to all of you who have commented on my photos. Special thanks to Digital Flower Pictures and to Squirrel for helping me identify them. All my identifications come from Digital Flower but Squirrel also identified the Jewelweed (the darker yellow flower, fifth one down).

Castor Bean Plant
Morning Glory or Petunia
Cockscomb Celosia
Viburnum berries
Jewelweed
Japanese Red Maple
Callicarpa berries

Digital Flower Pictures described this as "Rose, obviously. It is interesting since it only has five petals, making it a true ‘single’ rose. You don’t see that too often these days."

  3. What are the red berries from?

    You should go back to my blog about handwriting. I deleted your comment by mistake and confessed on the post. Then I went back to the moderation page and it was still there. So I tried to publish it but it said it was already deleted.

    So I copied the comment and pasted it on the post about handwriting. It is the first time I have ever done that and then tried to correct it. It is almost funny.

  7. Beautiful photos. The small yellow one is Jewelweed. It is a very interesting plant. I especially loved the second one which was a leaf. It is a given that flowers are beautiful but you have found the beauty in the leaf. Well crafted photo.

  14. Here is a list of what I think your plants are. You have posted a nice series of shots.

    1. Maybe Austin rose ‘Graham Thomas’ the color is very similar.
    2. Castor Bean Plant
    3. Morning Glory or Petunia it is tough to see from this angle. I
    never noticed how similar they would look from this angle.
    4. Cockscomb Celosia
    5. Viburnum berries. Can’t really see what species.
    6. Jewelweed
    7. Japanese Red Maple
    8. Callicarpa berries. Aka Beautyberry, you can see why!
    9. Rose, obviously. It is interesting since it only has five petals, making it a true ‘single’ rose. You don’t see that too often these
    days.

  38. Hi Ms Denise, when I saw the first photo,I suddenly remembered my Mom, it's her favorite flower, "just the yellow rose" she always say. And from then on, it has become her trademark "Ms. Yellow Rose"

    Denise, thanks a lot for your best wishes and prayers for my Dad, it helped a lot.

    Hugs and blessings,

  53. "Castor Bean," eh? It reminds me of those tee-shirts from the seventies. ;-)

    I like the color in your Japanese Maple. I have one in my back yard, but it seemed more brown this year than ever. I hope the lack of redness is not indicative of any health problem.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Beautiful Denise! OH I needed to know the name of that Castor Bean!!! Thank you! I've seen it down here but didn't know what is was.
    The Beautyberry is BEAUTIFUL!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I've been away a couple of days Denise and I'm trying to catch up. :)

  56. The flowers are simply gorgeous!

  57. enjoying all these photos!
    The sap of the jewelweed is an antidote to poison ivy. It neutralizes the oily antigen called urushiol. Jewelweed is also called touch-me-not, because when the seeds are ripe and you touch the seed pods, the seeds leap out. so much fun!

  58. ROSES AND APPLE TREES ARE RELATED. APPLES BLOSSOMS HAVE FIVE PETALS.
