TODAY'S FLOWERS # 237

The link to Today's Flowers is open.  We start a new link each Saturday morning at 12.15 a.m. Eastern Time (US).  This is so that our overseas friends can share earlier if they wish.  To see beautiful blooms from around the world you can click here.


You may wonder why I am sharing paintings today but if you look at them a little closer you will see that all these 'paintings' are actually made of flowers.  I found them at the Philadelphia Flower Show last Monday.  I didn't realize what I was seeing at first and then when I read the descriptions, I realized I was looking at cleverly arranged flowers.  This year's show was a British theme, as you might have guessed if you haven't read any of my other posts.


















(A message that will be repeated every week.)

I wish to show my appreciation for all the participants in the previous week's Today's Flowers Meme, by sharing their links here.  I always try hard not to make any mistakes but please let me know if there are any, the same if I have missed anyone.  I have already been made aware of one or two mistakes and believe me, I appreciate it as I like to get things correct.  The links are in the order they were received on the home page.  Consequently, this list won't be alphabetical.  Clicking on the names will take you to their blogs.

With my thanks to last week's participants who were:

Brilliant 'paintings'. I think I liked the thatched cottage best - but they are all very, very clever. Thank you.

Those pictures are superb Denise - what a find you made. Of course the obvious question is are the paintings finished as the flowers dry out? I hope not.
