TODAY'S FLOWERS # 77

I took these photos when we were at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond last summer.
You might remember this little rabbit a while back when I first posted on the Gardens.


TODAY’S FLOWER’S was created by our good friend Luiz Santilli Jr.

You can find beautiful and unusual flowers from all over the world by clicking here.

I like the doggy sculptures and of course the lovely flowers. The second one is so delicate. Hope you are keeping warm.

Those are some sharp looking snapshots. Your camera takes great pictures. Botanical gardens are great places for photo ops.

I too love the doggie sculptures. The flowers are also lovely as well.

Quick question, what time does Mr. Linky open for Today's Flower, I always thought it was 10am?

Lovely flowers from the botanical garden! But I really fell in love with the two dog sculptures! How cute!

Lui said...

My flower dog Bogart who is visiting with me thinks the doggy is as cute as the flowers! I think I agree with him!

Rose of Sharon as they call it.

Oh Denise, I want to go to the Ginter Botanical Gardens sometime. Another blogger posted some beautiful Christmas light display from there. It must be a tremendous place.

Great FLOWER pictures today...

Delicious flowers. I liked rabbit and dog sculptures. They did well in the background of the flowers.

Oh so lovely flowers! I really want to visit Lewis Ginter - they have a great butterfly area too, I believe. Love the bunny and the doggies too!

The rabbit is adorable and the phlox I love dearly but it is too tender to tace our dessicating searing summer winds. I love the heady perfume of phlox at dusk.

mommanator said...

These flowers are so pretty, especially the pink and white ones. I like the little bunny, reminds me of the ones that come here to feed, I call him "Bun Munchkin".
