TODAY'S FLOWERS

I identify flowers where I can, when I know what they are, or if there is an identifying marker nearby. I don't know what type of rose this is, except that it is a beautiful shade of pink.



Purple Iris

  1. Flowers brighten my day. I love the Columbine. It looks like a doll with a petticoat and dress.

  2. O those flower fotos are FAB.

    The beach huts are on Preston beach where we have had a hut for many years. The kids love it.

  3. I adore the columbine, it always makes me think of ballerinas. Sadly I seem to have lost all mine.

  4. Hello Denise
    I's love to have a real English type garden here in Melbourne but some years it just gets too hot. I can't grow Hollyhocks for toffee and my Aquilegia/Columbine goes walkabout - flowers here one year and then pops up somewhere else another. Something to do with seed blowing in the wind.
    Take care

  9. I know very few flower names, I just call them pretty, unless someone identifies them for me. I really like the pic with the Hollyhocks - that's a calender pic! You have so many pretty flowers!

  25. All pretty flowers. Last weekend I saw a columbine at my mom's that had to be 5 inches from side to side. It was the biggest one I've ever seen and she told me there are more this week. Hope I get there to see some more huge blooms. ♥♫
