TODAY'S FLOWERS #92

We are always looking for new participants. If you are not already doing so, won't you please consider joining in TODAY'S FLOWERS by sharing blooms from your the part of the world? We would love to see them. You will find the link below my photos.

Anyone who would like to be a "Guest Friend" and have their flowers displayed on the home page, Luiz explains how you can do this at the TODAY'S FLOWERS site.

When I visited friend Kathy a few days ago, she showed me her beautiful flowers. Kathy told me they were Mexican Primroses and that they bloom in the Spring. These photos don't do them justice, they put on a truly magnificent show.

I asked Kathy if I could share them and she very kindly said yes. Thanks Kathy!

Kathy has a beautiful garden filled with a variety of the most colorful and varied flowers. I could quite happily spend an hour taking photographs. These Dahlias are in a pot by her front door.

Kathy is also the proud mummy of Hamish and he is her lovable four-legged family member who stole my heart the first time I met him. You can see Hamish if you click here.

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.

  5. I love the pink primroses. I have some, but they won't bloom until summer here in Colorado. I have to watch out for the grasshoppers, though, as they like to munch on the blossoms. Everything is late this year. ♥♫

  25. I am SO glad you posted the Mexican Primrose! I have a lot of it too but couldn't remember its name! Now I know and THANK YOU very much! They are beautiful and they do bloom more often than just spring. Mine will bloom again in the early fall. But, I am in southern California, maybe that is why. Those dahlias are very nice, too! Happy Mother's Day to you and yours!
