TODAY'S FLOWERS #247

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.

~~~~~~

Just like last week my flowers today were found at The United States Botanical Garden in Washington DC.  If you go here the link will take you to their home page.  I identify when I can.


This is Saxifraga stolonifera.  It is a perennial and has several common names; Creeping Saxifrage, Srawberry Saxifrage, Creeping Rockfoil, Aaron's beard, Strawberry Begonia or Strawberry Geranium.        It is, however, not a begonia or a geranium.  I found all this information here.  




Try as I might I haven't been able to identify these.  



All I know about this is that it is called a Dendrobium Angel Flower.  

~~~~~~

(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 do make the occasional mistake and I have already been made aware of one or two.  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:



























                                                                      













Lillianna from Tradgards Tankar

Sleepshort said...

Your photos are lovely. There's something so very reassuring about seeing flowers in bloom don't you think.
It's nice that you honour TF participants in the way that you do.
Have a great weekend.

beautiful flowers and great shots. I like the back lighting in the last photo. It looks like an angel orchid.

SquirrelQueen said...

Gorgeous flowers Denise. I have heard that first one called a Strawberry Begonia, it's nice to know the real name.
The orange flowers, which are very striking, may be a Bush Lily or Natal Lily.

Elephant's Child said...

Gorgeous flowers. I think your second flower is a Clivea.

Valerie said...

Lovely flowers, Denise. I like the first one - the petals look like wings, waiting to fly off.

Linda said...

The orange flower - maybe a lily-type - really 'glows'. I like the delicate flowers of the saxifrage and it's very different from the ones we have bought from our garden centre.

Luna Miranda said...

the white flowers look like a butterfly--so pretty. i love the orange flowers, gorgeous color!

eileeninmd said...

jabblog said...

Beautiful, Denise. I agree with Elephant's Child that the orange flowers are Clivia.

Betty Manousos said...

Rhodesia said...

I think the one you do not recognise is and Amaryllis, we had them all over the garden in South Africa. Or possible a Clivea. Diane

Carver said...

The flowers are all so lovely. Happy Mother's Day.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Fun flowers! I'm happy to see them!

Arija said...

The saxifrage is spectacular, the orange flower is Clivia and a dendrobium is of course an orchid and a very lovely one at that.

Thank you Denise for keeping this lovely meme going.

TexWisGirl said...

all beautiful! those orange ones make a statement, though!

Betsy Adams said...

Beautiful group of flowers, Denise. I don't know what the orange ones are either--but they are gorgeous.

We just got home from a week at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. Had a fabulous time....

Happy Mother's Day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Karen said...

Beautiful captures, great shot of the orange Clivea, it also comes in yellow too.

The correct botanical name is, Clivia miniata.
