Greetings from Virginia Beach!  We are out of town again and I thought I would add the above photo from a walk I had when we first arrived.  After visiting with the family and bags were in our hotel room, I always head for the shore.  We are attending my father-in-law's yearly annual WWII Shipmates Reunion, a very special one this year as this is the 40th and final reunion.  Then on Monday Gregg and I are flying to Germany for two weeks, to attend the wedding of our niece.  I may be a bit scarce for a while but I have been pre-posting daily shares which should last until I get home, and if I don't get round to your blogs you'll know why.   

So here we are with flowers from the Norfolk Botanical Garden.

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

(This message will be repeated every week)

Over the next two months we have a lot of activities planned with family and friends, my niece's wedding, father-in-law's annual reunion and friends visiting from England.  I will post my Today's Flower's on our home page ahead of time, and also on my blog here through to the end of October, visiting blogging friends when I can.

With this in mind I won't have the time to put together the usual list of last week's participants but will resume once life starts settling down again.  Thank you for your patience and continued support of Today's Flowers.  I think you are all wonderful for sharing your many beautiful flowers from around the world.  It is a real pleasure to be a part of this meme.
