The link to Today's Flowers opens at 12.15 a.m. every Saturday, Eastern Time (US).  The old link will close the previous Thursday at 11.30 P.M.

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


The peonies were blooming the day we were at Meadowlark Gardens at the end of last month.  The gardens 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.

  20. Beautiful flowers! and I'm happy to join this week!

  22. I recognize some unique peonies that you captured at Meadow Lark, and what a pretty name for the gardens.

  23. Love the smell of peonies, but there are so short-live in the garden unless you cut them and bring them in.

  24. Beautiful shots in some lovely light Denise!

  25. Such gorgeous shots! Peonies are so photogenic and lovely.

  26. With many thanks to all of you who have left a comment here, and wishing you a great week :)

  27. I do adore peonies but they just do not survive our desiccating summer winds. I have one in a very large pot in the shade house that clings to life and one year even put up a bud that withered.
    I have heaps of flower photos but can't get to them, they are on two old computers, one I never connect to the internet and an other where the internet connection died. As soon as I can work something out, I will send you some.

  28. thanx for your lovely weekend flowers! :)

  29. Every one of these are spectacular! The color just grabs you.


  31. So lovely. Gorgeous detail! I can't wait to see what you have to share with I Heart Macro this week! Sorry I'm slow getting around to visit, I've been out of town.
