TODAY'S FLOWERS # 248 - May 18th, 2013

A new link to Today's Flowers opens 12.15 a.m. every Saturday morning at Eastern Time (US).  This is so that our overseas friends can share earlier if they wish.  The previous week's link will close the night before, on Friday at 5.00 p.m.

To see beautiful blooms from around the world you can click here.


As in previous weeks my flowers 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.

The stick planted in the soil read: "Dend., Angel Flower.  5-12-2010"

 Obviously an orchid but I could find no identification.

The marker read: "Dendrobium farmeri - orchid family - Orchidaceae - Himilayas, Burma, Thailand, Malaysia.

A profusion of hydrangeas were in planters everywhere.


(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:
