TODAY'S FLOWERS #253

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.

~~~~~~

These are photos taken at the Niagara Falls Botanical Garden (Canada).  I don't have the identity of all of them but maybe you will be able to.  Any help as always would be gratefully received.

These blooms were hanging down from a tree.  Added note: 7-1-13 - looking on line for something else I came across several photos of the Kentucky Yellowwood Tree and by comparing the leaves and the blooms, they looked identical.  Cladrastis kentuckea, I hope!  If you disagree please feel free to tell me.

 Chinese Peony - Paeonia
(Japanese Group)
Pride of Blasdell


Golden Columbine (Aquilesia crysantha)
Yellow Queen
Ranunculaceae


I know these I just can't for the life of me think what they are right now.  (Added note: Judy at Lilac Gate thinks these may be False Lupins.  Thanks Judy.  Judy's blog link is here)


Mountain Bluet (Centaurea montana)  Compositae - Cent. Europe





~~~~~~

(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.
