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

These are a few more flowers from my walk around Meadowlark Gardens a couple of weekends ago. I identify when I can, if there are labels next to a plant.


Hellebore - Helleborus - Dark Parents


Star Magnolia



Mahonia Japonica Bealei - Leather Leaf Mahonia
Information on marker: to 6', yellow flowers in fall, sharp-toothed holly-like leaflets, blue berries.




Snowdrops



Bloodtwig Dogwood - Cornus Sanguineus - Midwinter Fire

I enjoyed looking at the variety of blooms and blossoms that you posted today. My favorite was the star magnolia.

It see that Tom (fishing guy) made sure you didn't miss my first Today's Flowers post (LOL). Thank you for the warm welcome to this meme. How do you keep all the memes straight? Do you have a calendar that shows the day of week of each meme?

I have a variety of Mahonia in my garden. It has yellow flowers with a lovely scent of honeysuckle, and birds love the black berries.

Great shots and thnaks for the ID on the flowers. Was wondering what the star magnolia was as I have seen them in town. Got our straw bale info from finegardening.com - click on the bale article.
