The link to Today's Flowers opens at 12.15 a.m. every Saturday, Eastern Time (US).  This is so that our overseas friends can share earlier if they wish.  The previous week's link will now close the previous Thursday at 11.30 P.M.

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


Another look at the Spanish Lavender I found while walking around Meadowlark Gardens, in Vienna, Virginia.  Their home page is here.


(The following message 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 and
also my thanks to Sarah at Hood Photography for being last week's Guest Friend.

  2. Simply lovely. One of my most treasured memories is of staying at a Bed and Breakfast which dried its sheets spread over lavender bushes in the sun. Bliss.

  3. Oh wow, that is gorgeous. If the scent is as lovely as the bloom it must be heavenly to walk through the gardens.

  4. Pretty captures, Denise. The blooms sprouting from the top of the lavender look like feathers! Thanks for sharing and hosting. Happy weekend.

    Have a great week-end!
