TODAY'S FLOWERS #94

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.

I identify flowers when I can but for those I can't I always welcome a little help.

These two photos are wild iris'.
Not sure what kind of blossom this is.
I suppose most all of us know what this is, a water lily.
Same as the one before, not sure.
The next two photos are of wild honeysuckle. Their scent is fantastic.

Not sure what this is either. I want to say Queen Anne's Lace but I think the leaves are off. I will be pouring through my wildflower books to see if I can find its identity.
As you can see I am still very much a novice in my knowledge of flowers, but I have learned so much by being part of this meme and I learn a little more every day. I want to thank those of you who have participated and who have helped me since the very beginning in identifying various flowers. You have all made my time here very much a fun part of my week.


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

Beautiful flowers, Denise! I learn a lot just from reading your blog. Not only flowers, but birds, too, as well as historical sites. Keep it up!

I believe the third photo is a kind of rose. So many lovely flowers in springtime.

Kay said...

I love all your flower photos, Denise. I've taken so many photos of flowers in New Mexico but I've no idea what their names are. I love wildflowers, too.

Sooo pretty. I could live where the flower smell is all year pretty easily.

Ana said...

These are beautiful flowers, Denise - I can't help you with their names. I hope to buy a wildflower book soon to be able to identify the most common around me.

Carver said...

Those are all so beautiful Denise. The wildflower in betten the first iris and the water lily looks like wild blackberries to me. As a matter of fact following some in the wild and trying the berries is what made me let ones that volunteered in my garden grow. I enjoy the flowers but even more I love the berries to eat.

Hi, Denise!

Denise: What a neat set of wild flowers, lovely to see in the Spring.

maiaT said...

Beautiful set of wild flowers ans as an image is 1000 words worth, the name is not so important for me.
We learn very much from each other: I have some wild honeysuckle photos myself but I would never find its name without your example. Thanks!

Ebie said...

Hi Denise, I thank you and the rest of the crew of TF for sponsoring this meme. It has brought me to different world of flowers, especially the wild.

I recognize of them, without a name, I think it is wild roses.

More power to TF!

I always thought that the white flowers (the one you're not sure of) are wild roses. They look like it.

betchai said...

Denise,

The white flowers are likely rosa multiflora, very very common.
