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."

They are beautiful to look at without the names.

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.

Have a nice day.

these are sharp images and very, very lovely.

Squirrel said...

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.

Reader Wil said...

Never mind the names Denise! The photos are excellent and very lovely!

Cezar and Léia said...

You always bring happiness to my heart!
Have a great week
Léia :)

Randi said...

Your flowers are so beautiful even without names!

Carver said...

These are all beautiful flowers. I recognize a lot of them but not sure about names.

Pacey said...

I love them all Denise, esp the yellow one. Great series...thanks for the visit and glad to be back here.

Nance said...

As always, Denise, these are all gorgeous! I've seen all of them before except the purple berries, it's adorable specially when enlarged.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

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.

Beautiful flowers Deniese. I struggle to find the names as well. I can always write the local names of the flowers but couldn't find the proper names.All the blogger buddies always help me there! The single rose is beautiful, and very rare!

SandyCarlson said...

I love your flowers. Thanks to our friends for furthering our knowledge of these beauties. Love that single rose.

Judy said...

Wonderful photos!! I am impressed with the shot of the jewelweed, as I have fought with it for weeks now, and I think it is winning the battle. My favourite is the morning glory, though!! I just love the shadows on the petals!!!

Naturegirl said...

A lovely series of summer's maturity in these glorious flowers!Of course it is the rose that calls my attention! Beautiful!

Laerte Pupo said...

Thank you for sharing.

AL said...

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.

You have many great pictures of roses. It's to bad you can't smell the roses through the pictures:-)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great series of photos, Denise. I'm a rose lover--as you probably know by looking at our roses on my blog.
Hugs,
Betsy

Leedra said...

All the photos are beautiful, but my pick is the first one. The light is just perfect on the yellow rose.

Grace and Bradley said...

Beautiful flowers, I also can never find or remember all the flowers that we planted or photographed.

Happily Retired Gal said...

I'm late to be visiting but trying to catch up with Today's Flowers ... just because. What BEAUTIFUL photos you've shared of these LOVELY blossoms. The first was my favorite until I scrolled down ... and now there's simply no way to choose. Thanks so much for sharing!
Hugs and blessings,

Craver Vii said...

"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.

Eve said...

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!!

Carletta said...

I've been away a couple of days Denise and I'm trying to catch up. :)
These are beautiful from that sunny yellow all the way down to the single rose that is very, very lovely!

Jama said...

The flowers are simply gorgeous!

Splendid Little Stars said...

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!

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