TODAY'S FLOWERS # 68

We found these pretty flowers in Mendocino, California.




Whenever I see Calla Lilies I always think of my Mother as it was her favorite flower. She had them in her wedding bouquet which you can see here.


TODAY’S FLOWER’S is a wonderful meme created by our good friend Luiz Santilli Jr. You can find beautiful and unusual flowers from all over the world by clicking here.

Very pretty selection of flowers. How strange it is that they have evolved so many different shapes and forms and colours but all follow pretty much the same processes.

These are such nice flower shots. The top one is California's state flower, the California poppy. It is illegal to pick it from roadsides. It self-seeds prolifically in the garden! Such a cheerful flower.
